This PC is cooled by 2 fans and heat pipes to evacuate the heat from the back, the sides as well as the bottom, via an elevation of the back.
This computer gamer benefits from good connectivity positioned mostly in the back. It consists of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C with Thunderbolt 3, wireless Bluetooth 5.0 modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, HDMI video outputs and mini-DisplayPort convenient to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit which is convenient to discern its keys in the dim light.
Particularity of this laptop, its webcam is located not above the screen but below, which may be confusing.
The screen clearly targets the players and may also interest the creative. With its frequency of 144Hz higher than the standard 60Hz, it enhances fluidity in games. In addition, it has G-Sync technology (incompatible with Optimus) that improves the rendering in games by sync with the most just with the graphics card.
The screen also displays a brightness above average (500cd / m² against 200/300 cd / m² usually) and features suitable for high definition content such as videos with its full HD definition and its 16 / 9th format .
