Excellent gaming laptop
Pros: Majority of the peripheral ports are on the left side of the laptop 144hz 17.3" full HD display Heat is displaced out the back of the system rather than the side. Wider space bar is awesome. Not overly thick Relatively quiet in the "silent" mode Armoury crate hotkey is a nice feature
Cons: -I have had instances where one of the speakers stops working and the only way to fix it is to power the system off, remove power and turn it back on. I haven't been able to determine the cause of that though. Hopefully its a software or driver issue that can be corrected easily. - There is only one m.2 slot.
Overall Review: I don't understand why the brand of SSD(Intel) or memory(Samsung) isn't included in the description. Things the laptop could do without: - Aurasync flashy RGB keyboard - RGB bar - "camou-weave" across the keyboard - ridiculous start up sound that thankfully can be disabled.
