Summary: For what you're spending, this is a very nice system. The specs are some of the best available and the IGZO IPS QHD+ screen the screen is absolutely beautiful, expecially when you find images or videos that use every single pixel. You'll find most programs will scale properly; however, you will find some programs are not programmed to be used on an 1800p screen. This will be resolved in due time.

Summary: This laptop is a wonder, its incredibly powerful and performs incredible quick.
