The laptop houses Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor which is supported by 8GB of RAM. The processor can support both 2.6GHz and 3.5GHz speeds. The latter one is when the turbo boost is activated.

The laptop has a 15.6-inch screen which has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The OS that this laptop comes with is Windows 10, which works exceptionally well with the laptop’s processor.

The keyboard is American style, which may be a problem for some users.

The trackpad works well and is quite accurate, even when used with two-finger scrolling.
