  • Not bad

    from Scarborough, Ontario on July 16, 2019

    I purchased this laptop on July 10th 2019 during the sale. As soon as i got the laptop i had some issues with the hard drive but its an easy fix i think for the deal its worth purchasing. Games like league of legends, other esports games. runs smoothly and some newer games need to be reduced in quality maybe medium settings but all in all decent laptop. Would i recommend to my friends? If the price was dropped to around the price i paid for it yes worth but not over a grand. If so look else where!!

  • Great Laptop, Terrible Battery Life

    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.
