    • Great Laptop, Terrible Battery Life
      by

      from Ontario on June 10, 2019

      This laptop plays the games you want it too and does it well, Aside from having a screen tearing problem that i had to manually fix upon purchase the only other issue was battery life, It only lasts 1.5-2.5 hours maximum, thats with battery saver on.


    • An amazing laptop for its price

      It's a great laptop if you're a student who needs a computer that can be carried around and also play games on. Plays fortnite and csgo with high settings and fps. However, the battery life is pretty bad so you'll want to use power saving mode when on battery power or bring the charger if you're going to game on the go. Fans are quite loud when you play games.
