Product Description

Gamers might look at this Zephrus and be concerned because it's so amazingly thin; don't panic, because this has some whopping power hidden on the inside. There's a lot of hardware packed in there and you won't find yourself lacking when it comes to gaming power. A smart airflow design keeps the whole thing nice and cool even during high-intensity online fights while the large Full HD screen comes with a gorgeous matte finish that means those battles are going to look and feel vivid and realistic. Plenty of RAM, an Intel® HD Graphics 630 (a dedicated integrated graphics card that is outstanding, but also the ability to upgrade to a better, more powerful graphics card), and a 7th Gen Intel processor mean that you won't be compromising on specs either, even when you're loading up Ace Combat in VR. Gamers looking for full immersion are going to love it.
