Pretty good

Memory Size: 16GB

Is a good laptop for the price. Fan is pretty noisy and runs in overdrive when playing games. Games load quickly and are smooth but the biggest flaw is the constant noise from the fan.

Plays and performs what I want it too

Memory Size: 16GB

Replacing an inconsistent mid range RoG laptop so the fact the keyboard doesn't give up regularly is a great boost. Nice sound, graphics, and cooling fan is way quieter than the RoG. Design is average but that's no biggie for me. I recommend for any moderate gamer
