I've had this laptop for almost a month now (i5 base model),
and I am not disappointed at all. The body is all made out if plastic, but it does not feel cheap. It has a soft touch plastic coating around the outside and by the keyboard. Although this is very nice, it is a finger print magnet, so if you want to keep it clean, then wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. The speakers are surprisingly loud for a laptop, and have decent sound quality. The built in subwoofer does give some extra bass but is nothing crazy that will shake your entire neighborhood. The keyboard is very nice and is not as bad as people usually say it is with key travel. It has a soft touch like the plastic on the outside of the laptop and has a low and high backlight setting for typing in the dark. The track pad is fine for normal use. I turned down the sensitivity slightly which made it better, but I would recommend getting a mouse for gaming. The built in webcam is good and has dual mics to better capture your voice.
The 1080p screen has a nice picture, but I would turn the reds down a little for a quick optimization. The screen can be decently bright and everything is sharp. But there is one small problem, that is a little screen bleeding on the bottom of my screen. Its not a very big deal, especially if you're gaming, and is only noticeable if the screen is completely black.
The battery life is pretty good, if you're gaming unplugged it uses a weaker gpu so you might want to change that in the settings.
Now finally, the performance of this laptop.
I've thrown a good amount at this laptop and was not disappointed. With 4 gigs of vram, most games can be played at high settings, 60 frames per second, and this computer has no problem. Even the newest games can be played in decent settings. I have had no problem with heat management at all, the 3 air vents keep it very cool while gaming. The performance is excellent.
So overall the build quality is good; is a very good looking laptop with solid performance. I am very happy with this laptop and is a very big recommendation if you're looking for a budget gaming pc.
