• CPU: Intel Core i7-7700HQ
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB GDDR5)
  • Display: 15.6”, Full HD (1920 x 1080), 120 Hz, TN + G-Sync
  • Storage: 6000GB SSD
  • RAM: 32GB DDR4, 2400 MHz
  • Weight: 2.34 kg (5.2 lbs)

Pros

  • Refreshing design for a gaming machine
  • Decent overall build
  • Excellent IPS panel with G-Sync support
  • Powerful hardware in a relatively small form factor and size
  • Supports PCIe NVMe SSDs

Cons

  • Noticeable coil whine under load
  • Some units ship witn an M.2 SATA SSD instead of PCIe NVMe drive
  • The screen uses PWM from 0 to 99% screen brightness (Health-Guard profile eliminates that)
