  • I'm impressed how light and wafer thin this laptop is.
  • It looks elegant and stylish, and I have no fear of embarrassment taking it meetings with design conscious clients.
  • It is totally silent with light usage (web browsing, word processing), with heavier usage (3d gpu/CPU rendering) the fan noise is acceptable and not noticable any louder than previous laptops I have owned.
  • I am amazed at how many features there are in this laptop.
  • Its one of the quality building laptops, amazing design and nice features.

  • Very nice design and the vapor chamber does its job.
  • The screen is very good 144 Hz is just a pleasure to game on.
