    Right out of the box, the casing is well built and seems will be highly durable over time. Runs very quietly even while pushing large programs and games. The RTX 4070 is sufficient, although I've heard people say jumping to the 4080 is worth the money. For our use though we haven't seen any drop in frame rates or lag and I don't plan to upgrade for a while. I love the backlit keys and layout...no issues with the battery or charging so far.

    Best laptop money can buy in this price range. I got mine for $300 off so if it’s on sale, go for it! Also has the best CPU in the market, great cooling system with massive fans, 300W battery/charger, 4070 (which is enough for me), and has yet to struggle with anything. Lenovo software is nice too. I’m happy with my purchase and I’d recommend for video editing (I use Davinci resolve, no problems) or for gaming. Again, no struggles on any game I’ve played (FPS, open world and strategy games all worked great). Can get hot from games but don’t all laptops?

    Keyboard colors are out of control

    I really haven't been able to do much with this. I have spent 3 weeks trying to get the keyboard background colors to work right and they don't. They have special Lenovo Vantage software that use a program called Spectrum to customize keyboard background colors. Well, it doesn't work. My keyboard defaults to the keys changing colors from right to left in waves. The spectrum software will work 1 time only and then not work if you try to use it again. The colors that you are able to set with Spectrum last until you reboot the computer, then they go back to the original default colors. I called Lenovo and they have not been able to fix it. It has done this since I bought the laptop. Lenovo support reinstalled windows and deleted all of my apps that I spent 3 weeks getting installed. Now I have to start all over from scratch and the keyboard still does not work. I have not been able to do much more than install apps and try to get my keyboard to work right. I tried to ignore the keyboard but flashing colors like strobe light is not what I would call a pleasing working environment. I wish Lenovo could fix their keyboard. I might have to take it back to bestbuy. I have not been able to check it out to see if it can do anything cool yet. So sad and frustrating.

    It's a fast laptop and was a good deal for it's price. Battery life is not great, but no gaming laptop really has a great battery. Compared to my previous laptop though, the battery life is doubled. It has a nice keybind allowing you to put it into a thermal/cooling/battery life mode vs a balanced mode vs an overclock mode, making it super easy to throttle it to just what you need. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and don't have any regrets yet.

    Has everything I wanted in my pc at a fraction of the price I was researching with other brands. The fans do make a lot of noise when it gets hot, but it has only done that while playing a new game with overheating issues at max settings. I’ve had zero issues with this so far.

      Hi, AnthonyM. While we are thankful that you chose us, we are sorry to hear that you are having trouble. Regarding battery life, as you may know there are lots of variables that contribute to battery life. Thankfully, many of those variables can be adjusted. By default, the system will tend to give more speed when needed, which can sacrifice battery life. If you want to squeeze out more battery life, we recommend users utilize the Lenovo Vantage application that is preinstalled to adjust settings related to power and battery performance. Users can also take advantage of the keyboard shortcut, Fn + Q to toggle thermal modes and easily switch between prioritizing battery life or power, or even the best of both words. This model also features a MUX switch that can be easily toggled in that same application to become even more efficient for when your RTX GPU is not needed. Your feedback has been noted and we will make the proper adjustments should it be necessary. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. Lenovo

    Upgrading from a 7 year old Razer blad this laptop has been fantastic. I have always enjoyed Lenovo products but this has also just worked and gotten the job done no fuss. Beautiful display as well.

    Amazing performance. 2x 1Tb hdds for reference. Removed Tobii eye tracker and Vantage still seems to work nicely. StarField looks great. Does run quite hot when gaming. But overall quite efficient, and the AI is kinda neat. Very happy.

    Powerful laptop with effective cooling. I use this for game development, so I value the extra memory and storage. Some gaming laptops are real lap scorchers, but not this. It's on the thick side, but that space is very well used for airflow.
