Specs:
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 512 GB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
Benefits:

  • When it comes to processing power the Intel Core i7 has plenty of it. No matter if it is for gaming or just high end business use it is ready to handle whatever you want to throw at it
  • SSD drives are superior due to their faster read and write times along with lower power consumption. One of the drawbacks we see with some SSD drives is lack of space but this model comes with 512 GB which should be sufficient for most users
  • Gaming laptops tend to be on the heavy side and while this model is slightly more than a traditional 15.6 inch model at 2 KG it is still light enough to be your go to for on the go
  • You can’t be considered a gaming laptop without a high end dedicated graphics card and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has 6 GB of dedicated memory and can handle the latest games with ease

Downsides:

  • This laptop is big in specs in most areas but lacks a large amount of system memory at just 8 GB. If you run into performance bottlenecks this is probably the culprit
  • You will not find any nice to have features such as touchscreen or a 360 degree hinge on this model
  • Not only is the memory limited to 8 GB of RAM it also only supports up to 8 GB so upgrading in the future is not a possibility

Verdict:
This laptop has plenty of power to handle the gaming workload of most consumers but its biggest drawback is its lack of system memory. Seeing this at 16 GB would have been a big plus.
