  • Q: Is it noisy?  (5 Answers)

    By Canopy 

    • Best answerNo, I have an SSD drive that the programs are run on all data is stored in the cloud. If you use only the Hard Drive that comes with it, then you might have noise as it powers up and runs and when there are large chunks of data that is being read or written to the hard drive. Sorry not to be much help! I will say that this computer is one of the fastest that I have ever seen. I don't think you will go wrong with this purchase. I have been very pleased with its performance.

  • Q: More info on the battery please. Is the 3hrs battery life accurate?  (6 Answers)

    By mbrew 

    • Best answerI've managed to get a high of 7.25, by just watching a video and lowering the screen and keyboard brightness settings a bit. I've also been in a pinch and needed to render a video while a power source was not available, and reached my record low of 1.75 hours. Really it depends on how you are using it, but regardless its very good for a gaming laptop.

  • Q: How hot does this get under load?  (5 Answers)

    By scott 

    • Best answerIt gets hot, really hot. But listen, your buying a slim and light PC with desktop performance and desktop graphics card that is shoved into a very small and light aluminum laptop that crushes games like a champion. Complaining about heat in this is like complaining about the puddles after the rains finally end the drought. There are larger framed machines out there that may manage heat better, but not at the same amazing weight and thickness. This thing is mind blowing! Pure PC sexieness.

  • Q: How will it handle flight simulator X.  (2 Answers)

    By Hotelmike 

    • Best answerAs an owner of this laptop I could say it would run smoothly, You have 6GB Video Card to manage that and many other things. The only thing that I would add to this computer is more SSD memory, but if you are not planning to play multiple games with 128Gb is ok. :) Regards!
