Why I bought this laptop: I am a music producer, and I need something portable that had a CPU as powerful as my desktop. To start off, pictures don't do this thing justice, I didn't expect it to look aesthetically pleasing, but it really does. It gets many complements and the RGB keyboard is really awesome to look at. Not to mention, I've never used keys so smooth and easy to type with. The screen: I wasn't really worried about the screen because I will be focusing on music, and not gaming, but I have to say this 1080p screen displays colors very nicely. They are warm, vibrant, its almost as if it has a higher resolution. The fingerprint scanner reads my finger very quickly, and everything worked right out of the box, didn't even have to install drivers. What caught me off guard: I've never had an SSD in my computer, and apparently this is one of the fastest SSD's on the market. I have to say, it loads everything so damn fast and it also transfers files like they're all 1 MB in size. This thing is kind of heavy and big, but I found a backpack in Best Buy big enough to fit this thing so transportation isn't an issue at all for me. While making music, I can get about 2.5-3 hours on a full charge which is more than enough time to get something going without using the charger. If you are like me, and stayed away from laptops because of their lack of power compared to desktops, this thing truly is a desktop replacement. I haven't been using my desktop since I've received this thing and it is about time I've been able to become portable with the power of a desktop. I really love the 64gb of ram, many say it is overkill, but for music production it is very helpful. Side notes: Internet is super fast. Bluetooth is exceptional. This thing is a very nice texture... idk what it is but it feels very nice to the touch.
