Top Customer Reviews
Great bang for buck. Sleek and powerful

First impressions- amazing laptop. Plenty fast and great screen quality. I got the 17 inch model with gtx 1050. So far it's able to handle all my games for long periods of time. The laptop is really light for it's size and super thin. I think some of the bad reviews are user error. I find it hard to believe that even the most expensive and top brand laptops are getting bad reviews on here. So keep that in mind when researching. The screen is matte finish but don't let that deter you because it looks amazing and movies are crisp and vibrant. The keyboard is probably the most responsive one I have ever used. I have not had any overheating issues at all even during long game play. The fans are quite so not sure what the people who complained about that are talking about. This thing is a power house for the price. So far I'd highly recommend.

I will update later to see if any issues arose

UPDATE ONE: Still awesome! Its been over a month and have had zero issues. I play a ton of games new and old without any overheating. Temp is steady the whole time. I call user error on most bad reviews.

Just remember...most people are suuuuppperrr dumb with laptops and PC's and use misinformation that they received from their 10 year old to back up their claims haha!
