    Gotta say pretty impressed by performance from this laptop. Even at this config I am able to run Cyberpunk 2077 and other high end titles at comfortable 60FPS with everything on high-ultra. Got another 8GB of RAM coming in which will make this laptop a beast. The only downside if the bloatware that you get with it but that is easily remedied with a fresh Windows 10 install. I have not tested Windows 11 yet on this machine so don't know how it works with the laptop but I am dual-booting Manjaro and Windows 10 and the performance and compatibility is excellent.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    I got this a couple years ago for Christmas, and although I did run some intense games on it, it doesn't work at all anymore. It's to the point where everytime I start it up for the first time in like 5 hours, the screen freezes but I can still hear a video or game running in the background. The rest of the time it'll just break. Idk what happens but it makes a wierd noise and the screen does the thing in the attached photo. I can't afford to fix this, and I can't afford to get another one, I already replaced the charging port and the charger because they both broke (it started crashing before I did this).
