    "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."
