Great Laptop, Beautiful Screen, Faster than my desktop
I've owned this laptop for about a week now and I'm very happy with what I got. Here are the basics so far:
I installed about 10 games on it so far. 500GB SSD is nice though I'll probably expand that at some point. I mostly play indie games but Rocket League played fantastically, very smooth and great picture. The games downloaded way faster than I expected, I've only ever gotten up to 20mb/s download speeds on my desktop's wifi and this laptop was handling 50mb/s+ without any issue. I guess I need to update my desktop's wifi adapter. The screen is really, really beautiful. There is absolutely no bleed from the edges and it looks super consistent across the image.
The keyboard is nice and I didn't even realize it was coming with a numpad, so that was a cool bonus. I have not yet figured out if I can turn the cycling colored lights on/off yet but you stop noticing it after about 10 minutes of use. It is nice the first time you open it up to watch it cycle for a bit. The mouse pad is VERY good, better than any touch pad I've tried to be honest. There are no buttons but clicking the left or right side of it is very natural and the pad feels really nice to the touch.
The webcam quality is fine, the placement is interesting but understandable with the thin bezel look they decided to go with. The casing of the laptop is awesome too, it's not covered in silly looking sharp angles and what not that a lot of other gaming laptops go for. It feels refined and I won't be embarrassed to be seen in public with it.
Lastly, it didn't feel like it was filled with bloatware. I haven't even found myself wanting to uninstall any of the small software items it came with. It's basically just got a dashboard of the function keys and quick select settings. I don't leave it on but I suppose it would be useful to have if you want to be messing with that stuff all the time.
After searching for a laptop for months, I'm glad I chose this one.
