In our era, the world took ultrabooks. Minimal frame around the screens, a slim design, high portability and often a compromise in performance. But we have a test today on a very unusual device.

The design of the case
The top cover is quite distinctive, or rather, very simple. The usual matte plastic has a slight rounding in the corners. No faces here, just at the bottom, closer to the hinges, has a characteristic bevel. Even the logo of the brand decided not to put in the middle, and placed a little higher.
The back part looks more interesting and more like the works of Asus in their ROG lineup. Blame the two symmetrical air intake, through which you can clearly see the radiator.
Similar elements can be found and along the sides of the laptop, only on the right side we have a decorative insert without cut-outs, while the left can be seen again the heat exchanger.
And here it is necessary to clarify that the issue is not that where we see the metal, but somewhere there. We are talking about the cooling system, which is without any protection and will actively become clogged with dust.
That’s what is nice is the full scattering ports. On the left hand you have: mini-DP, HDMI, Type-C and dual USB 3.1.
At the right hand of the user is located:, DC-IN, RJ-45, USB 2.0 ports for microphone and headphone, card reader.
If you turn the laptop, we can see not only the thick rubber legs, but familiar approach to the world from China. See a lot of slots, in which are emblazoned the fee. Question again in the aesthetics. Knocked over a Cup of coffee, the pool fell under the laptop and you to replace the motherboard.
As you can see here, the faces of the bevel, in order to visually make the laptop thinner. And you know the designers did. When work does not think you work for a huge «Pandora».
Moreover, the working part of the device is very neat, and looks much more interesting. There is the same matte plastic. But you can praise the manufacturer for providing the keyboard and accurate touchpad shifted left of center. Any slits and cutouts are not, and the only illuminated elements is the power button.
I raised my eyes higher and see the manufacturer’s logo, which is emblazoned on the large frame matte display, above which is located the camera.
As noted above, it is matte. This means that the user is faced with a complete lack of glare, regardless of the maximum brightness of the matrix. And she’s of average quality, though IPS.
The display size is 15.6 inches and a resolution FullHD. For comfortable work and play is enough. Even after prolonged work with text no discomfort does not occur.
If we talk about the color, it goes with warm tones. Thus, distortion of all colors uniform, what can be said about the lighting. On our instance there is a distinctive glare in the upper right part. Included black background and see a grey blur.
Minimum brightness is slightly brighter than needed for comfortable work in the dark. But maximum enough even in daylight.
Keyboard and touchpad
It is a membrane, without backlight. I note the hard substrate, which does not allow the keyboard to bend. The key travel is solid, with a typical return button in the standard position.
Type texts comfortably. When playing the border of the keys is also not confusing. However, some allocation block WASD is not here. But high F-number given under quick command. You can easily turn off the screen or touchpad to change the volume, turn on the sleep or airplane mode. Display the Caps Lock is missing.
As for the touchpad, it clearly surpassed my expectations. The touchpad is a single part with the body. The finger glides well and the substrate itself is not deformed. Practicing touching occurs to cheer, to RUB his fingers in the window is not necessary, and gesture support on the spot.
Two keys have a clear click and perform the functions of the left and right mouse buttons. Here you can find fault only to the Assembly. At our instance the left button is slightly moved upward, you can see this by comparing the gaps around the keys.
Iron and performance
Let me remind you that the laptop is gaming and directly on top of the motherboard installed two of the highlights. The first is the Intel Core i5-8400, and the second is a discrete graphics card Nvidia GTX 1050 c 4 GB of memory.
If you think that the i5 in a gaming laptop is nonsense, I would note that we are talking about generation Coffee Lake, so it boldly gives «a light» to the older i7.
There is not much want to take in the number of cache and frequency of the cores, just go and load the sample toys. Immediately run GTA V and watch a situation.
The graphics were automatically set to «very high» settings. Me they were downgraded to «high», then was disabled vertical sync. In the result below 45 FPS I have ever seen. On average, even with active driving transport game gave 60-75 FPS.
The processor was able to warm up to 91 degrees. And during the hour average temperature was 77 degrees. The laptop itself is heated not strongly, much like a modern smartphone under load. Most goes to the top left part.
After launch CS:GO it became apparent that shipping the laptop should give serious projects. Because at high settings the FPS was steady at the level of 100-115. When a sudden murder and a jump of the ping, the indicator could drop to 60-80.
The laptop comes with Windows 10, even the official website says. Although on some commercial sites you can find the information about the DOS. The operating system was inactive, and was installed on the HDD drive, while on Board there was a blank SSD.
So it became clear that running the system with a regular hard drive, you will need 40-45 seconds, while after transfer the system to SSD, booth takes 18-23 seconds. The read speed is approximately 430 MB/s, write 350 MB/s.
It is strange that the manufacturer indicates the possibility to accelerate the cooling by a combination of FN+F1, in our case, this command disables the touchpad, which is even said by the dedicated icon. So this feature on the F-number could not be found. But the method of scientific spear found out, that the fans disperse the combination of FN+1.
Plus operation as it became clear that the full power of a notebook available to the user only when connected to the power cable. The system was set to high performance, but GTA V without socket does not give more than 30 FPS, the same situation in CS:GO.
And if you play without the cord, your fun will not last more than an hour, averaging about 40 minutes. The battery here is really weak. Even when typing text, the computer consumes about 30% per hour, and screen brightness set at only 50%.
But happy speed. No glitches or loud and clear. Everyday tasks can be solved without power supply from the wall outlet. Even for a light project in Photoshop, cut down the power enough.
Noise from a computer is not too much. In automatic mode, even under load, the system is not twisted fans on maximum. But if you just work with a browser, then typing on the keyboard will be much louder.
Individual plus a decent screen loop. Put the laptop on the table and quietly lift the lid of the screen with one finger. This usually can only MacBook.
But the rigidity of the lid of the display is not to be envied. Enough to stick to the non-touch screen you hear a tap matrix on the back cover. And if you hold down the display between the two fingers, you can flip.
I also do not much like the two stereo-speaker. They are located in the lower part and in addition to that the game is just in the table, and do it very disgusting. The sound is flat with a complete lack of bass. Movie one time to watch, but fans will be greatly disappointed.
About the camera tactfully trying to keep quiet. If you try to find a laptop on sale, most often its resolution is not specified. If you believe the manufacturer’s website, it is 1 MP, which is damn little.
It turns out that in our hands has been quite specific device. On the one hand this is quite a powerful iron, which is given almost for nothing, of course if you compare with other gaming laptops.
But at the same time to a laptop can how to find fault and praise on the part of the Assembly. Unambiguous same drawback becomes autonomy and the limitation of the performance. Among the advantages of matte screen and plenty of ports.
