Detailed Look –A monster in sheep's clothing
Looking closer, you'll find a laptop with good plastics that resist fingerprints very well. The tapered shape makes it easy to handle and also makes it seem much slimmer than it already is. Ports are evenly distributed between the right and left sides, and the extra DisplayPorts are located on the rear, a good place as a means of simply placing the machine on your desk as the machine for which you run your daily tasks.
Laptops traditionally aren't quite as upgradeable as you'd like. There's only so much that can be changed out. In this case, you're able to upgrade everything except for the motherboard. If, for some reason, you ever felt like putting in a different Skylake processor, and felt brave enough to take apart the large cooling system, then you can.
Need a new GPU to keep up with the times? Just go out, find a new (expensive) MXM board with your favorite next-gen Polaris or Pascal GPU and have at it. Need more storage? There's a lot of room in here for that, and RAM too.
