    "This is one of the best looking non-Apple laptops I've seen. It's so light and chic. This is the beast I'm looking for when it comes to gaming: 4k screen, superthin, the sound is very underrated and you need great sound in gaming, and it doesn't get too hot when you use it. I've had this laptop directly on my lap playing Call of Duty for hours without getting the firelegs from other laptops! It think that's because it's so light. Super important!"

    "This laptop is comparable to the main gaming laptop in the market, "Alienware". I however was not comfortable paying that much for it since I felt it was not on the same level as an "Alienware" product. If you don't mind spending excessive money for a mediocre laptop, try this one out."

    "While this is under in price, I wouldn't consider it a gaming laptop. I love it for work and for browsing the internet and watching videos, but the processor isn't good enough for games, nor is the memory. The screen is kind of small, but I love that it is touchscreen. That might be a problem in the gaming world. Overall, if I want this kind of laptop it would be for fun, and not for gaming. I would look elsewhere to get what I needed for it."

I think about myself a light gamer, management games like Cities Skylines, playing simulation/ world building, Tropico 5, Sims 4/3, Project Highrise & this pc takes everything you throw at it.

Monitor picture is great too, as well as the rest of the specs. Looks beautiful as well. Only thing I didn't like is again the 1050... if they went for a bit better option, this'd be future proofed for a while."

The performance on this laptop is really good and its pretty cool but it has issues with the Windows 10 drivers.

On the other hand, Photoshop and games run fine with the Nvidia chip but crashes if run with the integrated chip. "
