Physical Overview Continued
We get an HD webcam along with a dual array microphone. There is also a light sensor on the right side of the camera, and a light will turn on when the webcam is in use.
The screen is a 15.6" Ultra HD (4K) IPS WVA anti-glare display LCD, and its colors are vibrant, and the size of icons and texts is decent. I like 15" displays on notebooks as I feel 17" isn't portable enough, but more 15" is small for most with 4K resolution, but this display does well. The hinges allow for roughly 120-degree tilt.
The notebook is actually easy to open up, just remove the standard screws.
The CPU and GPU are cooled by heat sinks, as are their VRMs. Two large heat pipes take the heat to radiators where two blower fans on either side of the device push the heat out. The battery is rated for 91.2Wh, and isn't crazy large.
A Lite-On CX2-8B256 256GB SSD is included, and you can upgrade by either replacing the drive or adding in a second. The WIFI card is an Intel 8265NGW wireless-AC card, which is popular among notebooks in this range.
An HGST 1TB 7200RPM hard drive is also present so you can store your games on it.
