This is a fairly powerful computer with a ton of features you would normally have a hard time finding at this price point. I wanted something for my son with a 17" monitor, strong processor, and decent GPU, and for the price, you can't beat this laptop. It is fairly upgradeable if needed, which is a bonus. The GPU is good enough to drive his Oculus, and he does a ton of video editing in Premier Pro and photo editing in Fire Alpaca, and has no issues with rendering speed, etc. Of course it would be a lot faster with a better GPU, and it will never match a tricked out desktop, but again, for the price, excellent.
As has been mentioned, this thing is loud. Even running in quiet mode it is noticeable, but as soon as you start putting any stress on the processor, it sounds like a jet taking off. My kid uses noise cancelling headphones, so he doesn't really notice or care, but for everyone else, it howls. This isn't a big deal if you have decent headphones, but it will drive you crazy if you don't. The other issue we had was that the headphone jack crapped out after about 2 months of use. Apparently the A-10's he was using have an overly large jack (they wrecked the port on two different phones as well), so I suspect this isn't an issue with the computer. A bit of a nightmare to fix, however, and in the end we just left it broken.
This is a good, relatively inexpensive gaming laptop that will do everything you need it to do adequately. It isn't top of the line, but that isn't what you are paying for. It is loud, but that can be easily overcome with decent noise cancelling headphones. For $1500 including taxes, this was a great purchase that will handle anything you need it to do. If you don't care about portability, you will get a lot more for $1500 in a desktop, but you would be hard pressed to find a better laptop for the price.

powerful processor and GPU and ram. Ability to increase ram size and an additional NVME PCIE slot adds the ability to future proof. I got the model with a 90WH battery and it lasted me about 10 hours while i was playing minecraft and downloading games etc. Amazing machine for the price point.
screen doesnt have a full color range but makes no difference to online gaming, only photo/video editing. Beware where you buy it, do not buy it from sites like newegg.
I got this almost 2 weeks ago and love it, only thing i can say is i wish i bought it at memory express. I bought it from newegg.ca who is total trash, they put it on sale $200 off a few days after I got it and will not price match it. If you are considering buying this item, definitely buy it from a reputable dealer like memory express, even if you have to wait a little while, if its not in stock, because the mistake I made cost me $200 at christmas time.

From post boot to being in windows is like counting to 3 very fast. screen is clear and nice and bright. i love the fact that you can add a second m.2 ssd drive in it . just recently been playing with the other features you can beam your phone screen to this laptop as well as going to tv wireless.
no sd card reader with it did have one but i use a USB Type-C one which works great.
Battery lasts long time gives several settings to change for your needs . the back light keyboard is awesome great for using in the dark im not going to be complain about this unit
