    "5 star...Love it...It's also been difficult to find a good balance of portability, use, and a sleek look when shopping for a laptop, which has always led me to sacrifice gaming and performance for a macbook....What eventually pushed me to decide on this laptop compared to the Surface and other similar gaming laptops was the powerhouse performance in a slim body at a reasonable cost (for a gaming laptop of course) PROS: -The Intel-i7 8750H is a phenomenal processor with excellent performance across browsing, gaming, programming, and more."

    "Love it...So Nice...Gaming performance is also great....There is an analytical driver issue going on causing the laptop to stutter every so frequently, I feel like what it happens when just be doing a normal task, like browsing files in internet explorer or moving a window then suddenly, the laptop will completely stop for a few seconds, and the power light will switch color indicating that the laptop has switched to its dedicated graphics."
