    • Best answerI used to play LOL and SWTOR on a much much much... incredibly slower, older, budget gaming tower; I still managed 60fps on high settings with that setup. That computer and this laptop are not even in the same universe of comparison. This laptop is light years ahead. I play Overwatch on epic, fully maxed settings and average 100-130fps no problem. Gpu and cpu won't even go over 80c on temps, and I don't use even half of system ram between graphics card and system. This laptop is obnoxiously over powered for the games you're asking about.

  • Q: Would this be a good computer for school?  (3 Answers)

    By Rshoner 

    • Best answerDepends on what you are going to school for. For generic computing uses it will work but it might be overkill. For word processing, email, and internet research (for school) you can get by with a laptop at half the price. However, if you school requires something more (i.e. music or video editing like if you are going to film school) the extra power on this machine will be essential. Likewise if you are going to be doing engineering or computer programming, you will need the extra power this computer provides. Also, if the computer will do double duty as a game machine (like when you are trying to unwind between writing papers) then this is perfect for that.

  • Q: How many open slots are there to add more ram, and is there a 4gb or 8gb soldered moduled already installed?  (2 Answers)

    By Joe396 

    • Best answerThere is only one memory slot on this laptop. There is 8GB soldered on the motherboard (you cant change it). From the factory, there is a 4GB memory chip that is replaceable. Thus there is 12GB from the factory. The max memory is 24GB. To do this, you will need a single 16GB DDR4 2400 SODIMM 260 pin memory chip. This will replace the 4GB in the machine.

  • Q: Anyone use this laptop for photo editing?  (3 Answers)

    By Susan 

    • Best answerYes. It is fast enough to do some major photo (as well as video) editing. Depending on what you are going to do with your final product (i.e. print the photos or view them on other computers), I would recommend a good external monitor and a display calibration device (such as the Datacolor Spyder). Laptop monitors are not the best when it comes to color matching when you are printing out your photos or sending them to someone else to view on their monitor/TV. This is true with any laptop computer and not just this specific laptop. Also, if you are going to print out images as portraits, a monitor that swivels 90 degrees is essential.
