  • Great value!

    from Richmond on December 17, 2019

    Saw this laptop on sale on Black Friday to replace an 8-year-old laptop, I was initially intrigued by the combination of an AMD chip with Nvidia Graphics. I only buy Nvidia so most AMDs weren't on my radar. Happy to say the laptop runs all of my games in high-ultra graphics and I also installed another 8 GB of ram. Experienced zero issues with the networking card.

  • A gaming/workstation powerhouse

    from Fredericton, NB on December 9, 2019

    If you need some gaming or workstation power on the go, this laptop will work great. Can seem to run most modern games on med to high settings with a comfortable 60 frames. The SSD makes navigating through Windows lightning fast. PLEASE NOTE, if you're experiencing poor performance in gaming it's likely because Windows is using the integrated graphics instead of the dedicated GPU. Windows will do this in an effort to save power. To bypass, go into Windows Settings, Graphic Settings, add your specific program then select "High Performance". This will force Windows to utilize the GPU.

  • Biggest bang for the buck on sale and regular too

    from London Ontario purchase from Calgary on December 8, 2019

    Was asked to gift the best lower priced laptop. Better reasonably current specs for size, processor and battery life, ram, SSD, video card, back lit keyboard and happened to be on sale. Sure there's better ones but at 2 and 3 times the price. Sure, there were cheaper up to $250 less but incredibly inferior for the little savings. Having a video card instead of integrated graphics made it an easy choice and still holds up as the best choice at the time still.
