• CPU: Intel Core i7-8750H
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (4GB GDDR5)
  • Display: 15.6”, Full HD (1920 x 1080), 144 Hz, IPS
  • Storage: 1000GB SSD + 1000GB HDD

  • Weight: 2.48 kg (5.5 lbs)

Pros

  • Decent build
  • A slightly more simplistic design approach with less flashy appearance
  • Fairly comfortable input devices
  • Full HD IPS display
  • The panel doesn't use PWM for regulating screen brightness

Cons
