  • Decent design and build, Good keyboard, The HD panel doesn't use PWM above 48% (70 cd/m2)
  • Cheap, relatively good keyboard, almost no heat emissions, a lot of storage space
  • Quiet, relatively cool, lots of storage space, maintenance flaps, good application performance, gaming-ready

  • Slightly below average battery life, The Full HD variant uses PWM from 0 to 99% brightness (the Health-Guard profile fixes that)
  • Cheap case has many weak spots, no USB Type-C, no backlit keyboard, poor touchpad controls, slow SD-card reader, throttling at load, noisy hard drive, very small battery
  • Dark screen with poor viewing angles, no USB-C port, weak case
