It's actually everything that I ever wanted in a laptop. A sizeable 1080p matte screen, yet a very manageable form factor, responsive and fast in performance mode, yet also has long battery life (6+ hours) when running in power save mode. A back lit keyboard with number pad (programmable back lite is very cool), dedicated graphics card, fast ssd and also large hdd. It has all the ports I wanted; hdmi, ethernet, usb3, sd, headphone, mic. There will be fan noise while taxing the cpu and gpu, but I think it's normal and I usually have earbuds on anyway so it doesn't bother me. At least it doesn't overheat like my old 17" Macbook Pro. Built in speakers are equivalent to most phones, but I don't ever use them since I usually use earbuds or a sound system. I actually like that they didn't waste money on trying to get "good" speakers. They also didn't waste money on a touchscreen nor some kind of gimmicky way for it to be folded into a tablet form factor. I like that it's a generic design. If you don't like the logo, just cover it up with a sticker.

Persistence paid off!
Finally managed to snag one at this price after checking daily for week! Incredible bargain as the Keyboard/backlighting are great, the screen is incredible, great performance with gaming and photo editing Cons: +edges are indeed pretty sharp +audio is a bit quiet overall +battery is weak But those are pretty minor issues i expected upon order, 5/5 Very happy with purchase!
I like this laptop and I use it every day. It's lightweight and the screen is beautiful, plus I was able to get it on sale. I had to send this in for warranty just within a year, but they were very responsive and was able to service it quickly. Fantastic customer service on their end. The only gripe I have is the keyboard layout and spacing, I find myself hitting the wrong characters, but other than that, they keyboard itself is nice to type on. Laptop speakers could be better.
Don't let the name fool you
This laptop gets a lot of hate from the PC community, but let's make it clear, this is not the same as the OP desktops. Tonfang manufactures these for Walmart and Walmart puts their name on it. Some of the branding might be garish, but under the hood this thing is a beast for a laptop. With some light tweaking, the i7-8750H really shines (See pic). Same specced laptops in the same chassis from other system integrators are well over $1100. At $799 this laptop is a steal. Grab it while you can.
Linus Tech Tips recommended
Everything you need to know about this laptop you can watch from this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q13t_r8o4rY Caveat: get yourself a dual channel kit or just pop in another 16GB stick to make it dual channel to avoid throttling. Other than that, for $800 it is a great value proposition for the parts that you're getting. Keep in mind it is still a plastic chassis so you do have to baby it a little bit. Regardless, if you treat your gear well, your gear should treat you well as well. It's a policy I've always tried to keep with my own personal gear (as well as people). Do onto others as you would have them do onto you. Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming. ;-)
Very happy with it.
I have the 17" version. This was not so expensive for what I got with it, 32 gb ram, 256 NMe SSD and 2 TB regular HDD, decent screen good selection of ports, ok sound, great CPU and performance. Video has been more than enough for everything I've tried. keyboard... well, looks nice, average quality but I use a USB ergonomic wireless keyboard anyway. Overall very happy with it. I did replace the 256 GB NMe SSD c: drive with a 1 TB NMe drive for about $110. It was very easy to swap. I run Hyper-V VM's of other OS's in the background for testing and can even let them run when not using them, the laptop is fast enough not even to notice. After about a year now every once in a while there is a bit of fan-buzz. The touchpad, as people have mentioned, is also 'mediocre'. If it was swap in replaceable I might do that but I usually use a mouse anyway, so again, no big issue. These are 8th Gen, the world is now on 10th gen. I can say the 9th Gen Dell equivalent CPU set version (work laptop) is not any faster and is more 'glitchy' and prone to crash/reboot than this one by far, and the Dell runs very ''hot' by comparison with the fans running loud a lot of the time, this one has not had that issue.
Very mixed feelings...
The specs are an excellent value for the money. That's where the good ends. I am very torn as to this unit. First of after owning for several days and using non stop and currently writing the review on it, the keyboard is very sub-par. I can't count how many mistakes I made so far... It really is not "mechanical" at all but rather some sort of proprietary clicking sounding mushy mechanism. I often miss key registers by not pressing hard enough, and sometimes double type (period symbol happens all the time) This is my biggest criticism. It is the most important part of the machine since it's used the most and feels very half-baked. Keys slope weirdly outward and I often find myself hitting the wrong key. It also feels cramped. The numerical pad did not need to be included and it would have been better to space the keys out better. Case is nice and sturdy, but does have sharp edges that will dig into your skin depending on how you are resting your hands on the laptop. Screen is nice and bright for a gaming laptop, with nice color gamut, however there is significant light bleed coming in from the bottom, visible on black and dark gray backgrounds. The 144hz panel is great for games that will utilize those high refresh rates. This means mostly older titles like CS GO and the like. The battery life is abysmal, but this is somewhat ok with a gaming laptop. Trackpad is absolute trash. Tracking is bad, and clicking feels laborious. Lack of thunderbolt 3 port is disappointing paired with rest of specs. RGB and overall look of the machine is nice. I will not be keeping this unit. My biggest gripes and reason for return are the bad keyboard and the light bleed on the screen. The two things we use the most on our machines should have been perfect, and I would have been able to overlook the rest.
