- Screen in bright with high refresh rate. - Easy access for upgrades. 9 screws and its all right there: NVME, RAM, and 2.5 HDD SATA.
- No additional or 2nd NVME socket, had to upgrade entire NVME. - Removable back could be better quality. - No Win 10 Professional Option
CAD Work Station Excellence : With the upgrade to 64 GB, 1TB NVME and 2 TB SSD and Win10 Pro its now a robust CAD work station. It handles everything I can throw at it with poise and speed. Its as faster than my 2 year old $4000 desktop. . Excellent over all value with the newest 3060 Video card and Intel CPU. The cons are so small I would rate it 4.75 if it was an option, but definitely not a 5/5 Value 5/5 Overall build quality 3.25/5 Upgrade ability: 4/5 Screen 5/5 Bios controls 4.5/5

It's thin, nice keyboard RGB lighting, doesn't really heat up on keyboard (heats up above it, which is good for the fingers!)
3060 Max-Q, keyboard is a little mushy, display isn't the best
Good laptop for what it does/offer, but beware it's a 3060 max-Q.

Fast and smooth
This laptop runs current gen games perfectly and exceeded my expectations. I tested a variety of games and found no complications. The looks are also esthetically pleasing. I was very happy with the purchase and would highly recommend this system for those looking for a gaming laptop as the price is also very reasonable.

Once you get the system tuned to take advantage of the GPU, CPU and RAM, the system is quite nice and seems performant. As a business man, it's nice to know I can change the keyboard from the flashy rainbows to something tamer for a business office setting. For a gamer looking for all the RGB bling, its a little more basic, but as a business man, I prefer it. I've heard complaints on reviews of the shallow key travel, but as a software dev during my day job, I find the keyboard experience to be exactly what I want it to be.
The system is rated for higher clock speeds, memory speeds, display refresh, etc than what the defaults out of box are set to. As a consumer, I'd prefer that the system be configured out of box to maximize the performance. Out of box, the NVidia card is not enabled as the primary GPU. Easy to change, but if you don't know about tweaking your system you will have to youtube and learn. When pushing the processing power of the video card, the fans ramp up to keep things cool and the fan noise increases. That said, keeping things cool is important when trying to get the most out of your system.
I still have a fair bit of tuning to do on the system to take full advantage of things, but with a couple simple settings in the NVidia control panel, I was able to get the system to achieve great benchmarks on a few of the different benchmark sites including userbenchmark and cinebench. It has only been a few days owning this system, but I am a picky end-user, and I feel this was a good purchase.

Light, thin, fast, low heat and performs extremely well. I can run R6 siege over 200FPS and Warzone Ultra setting with 100+ FPS. Price is reasonable for the budget gamers. The monitor is awesome!
Fans are quiet. However, I just found out I am getting a weird buzzing noise and vibration from the top left fan. I turned up both fans to 150% power for 2mins and turn it back off. The buzzing noise and vibration just went away for now. I will keep an eye on it. Hopefully, nothing is serious.
