    • Great one but LACK in cpu

      from Mars on June 26, 2019

      Graphics Card is great, but it’s 2019 now and you have better choice of GTX 1660 or 1660ti, or even RX 590; CPU is great but it’s 2019 now and you have better choice of i7 8700 or even i5 8400; Lack in memory, I add an 8 gigabytes one; SSD is fast but not quite fast enough. Generally it worths its price. I use it fairly well. If you have enough money, go and buy 1660ti or 2060; it’s the best in this price.

      The laptop is really really good. Its very cheap for the specs that it has. Very happy with it

    • Good Laptop

      from Ontario on May 25, 2019

      I purchased this on sale, and I earnestly think this laptop has the best specs for the price. A GTX 1060 in a laptop this cheap is rare. I also appreciated having both the SSD and the HDD as it gave quick boot up times along with lots of storage. 144Hz screen is also nice (although good luck trying to get a consistent 144fps in games, as that's rare.) Cons: -Track pad feels cheaper than other laptop's I've used in this price range, like the Acer Swift 3. -Like most gaming laptops, it's quite heavy and bulky -Not quite as powerful as I expected. I figured the GTX1060 would get a consistent 120fps in Fortnite, but that isnt the case (even on low settings). I can get a consistent 60fps on high settings however. -No Touch Id, which is unimportant but would have been nice. Overall, this is a good laptop and I'd recommend it.
