This has it all, and then some. From the graphics to the processor, you're not going to have any worries playing the best AAA titles, and they're going to look good too. No worrying about in-game settings being lowered here. The RGB keyboard feels just like a well-designed keyboard should feel, and isn't dissimilar from standard PC keyboards. Some exclusive Active Aerodynamic System cooling keeps overheating as a distant memory, and without the intrusion of a noisy fan. The 1TB SSD is impressive, speeding up your loading times and improving gameplay while giving you all the storage you'll ever need. Add in Xbox connectivity and being VR ready, and you've got an impressive machine that will make a real difference to your gaming.
