Razer's box is simple, and packaging is well done with the notebook and accessories well protected.
Accessories include AC/DC power adapter, AC power cord, and product card. The AC/DC adapter is rated at 8.33a at 19.8v, so 165W.
The top of the notebook features Razer's iconic triple snake logo, and it lights up when the notebook is on. The bottom of the notebook features two very large rubber feet that traverse the length of the entire notebook, and we can spot two fan intakes. The entire body is constructed of aluminum, and it's very sturdy.
The front of the unit features a slight lip where you can grip the display to open the notebook. The rear features a large center hinge, and when the screen is open, the exhaust vents are exposed. The left of the unit features the DC input jack, RJ-45 LAN, two USB 3.0 (5Gb/s) ports, a combo audio jack, and a speaker vent. The right of the unit features a speaker vent, SDXC card reader, a Thunderbolt 3 type-C port, another USB 3.0 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, and a Kensington lock slot.
The full QWERTY keyboard is backlit with RGB LEDs behind each key, and Chroma can control the lighting scheme. The keyboard doesn't have a number pad. We left that the keystroke distance was good and the keys felt just as durable as the notebook itself.
You might have noticed that the touchpad is not in its normal place, but rather to the right of the keyboard. It could be easier to use the touchpad for gaming this way, as it is an easier transition from using a mouse. The touchpad has an RGB box around it, and you can find media buttons and a volume knob above it. We can also get a glimpse of the speakers on the two edges of the notebook.
