Tested for undistorted audio output capability and the ability to drive a high-performance headset and speakers, the audios system of this laptop has great frequency response, least distortion, signal to noise and crosstalk control. This enables the laptop to give an audiophile-quality performance.

To conclude the outside, we have to mention the power brick. However, 250W power adapter is astonishing. It has the very small footprint and yet can support such a beast. The sleek, slim and durable power brick can be the perfect travel companion.
Now, what’s inside of this beast? Surely, with such a price tag it has some high-end hardware inside and to make it true, it has Overclocked Quad-Core 7th Gen Intel Core i7 7820HK processor supporting Hyper-Threading of 2.9GHz / 3.9GHz / 4.3GHz (Base/Turbo/Overclock).

Finally, for storage it can provide up to 2TB dual PCIe SSDs configured in RAID 0. Options of 512GB, 1TB and 2TB are available to purchase.
So much power in such a small space will surely require a very good cooling system.
