Storage is settled up on with 128 GB SSD, but the company also provides 256 GB and 512 GB PCIe SSD options. Depending on the budget, gamers can also choose to have 8 GB or 16 GB of DDR3L memory.

Now let’s move to the notebook’s design. There are two fans provided at the bottom of the laptop for pulling the air in, and exhaust fans on the back, keeping the warm air away from the user’s hands and the keyboard.
