  • 15.6" Full HD IPS LED

Build quality, input devices

The build quality is good overall. The whole body is made of hard plastic. Starting with the lid, thanks to the 2 hinges, there isn’t much flex when the relatively thin lid is twisted. The keyboard deck and keyboard area are solid, little to no flex. There are some weak points of course. For instance, there is noticeable flex when force is applied on top of the lid cover, especially at the center part. There is some flex above the keyboard where the battery sits below. Also, even though the lid can be opened with one finger, the hinges are too loose, causing the lid to wobble. The lid can be opened to ~140 degrees.

Keyboard – The keyboard is like my Legion Y530, which is good. The keys require slightly more actuation force (I would say 50-55g), has about 1.6mm travel distance, key feedback is slightly more rigid unlike Y530 which has a soft stop. The keys are quite clicky to type on. There is a minor complaint: When the keys are fully pressed, you can feel the key has some sort of resistance at the end of the travel distance which feels mushy; however, this doesn’t affect the typing experience much. There is 3 zone RGB lightning which can be controlled by Eluktro software.

Touchpad – The touchpad uses Synaptics driver (I forgot to check it is Precision driver or not, sorry about that). It has a large surface. Gliding, gestures and everything else are smooth and accurate. The plastic surface is smooth. The physical buttons are OK to be pressed. Quite good overall.

Display, Audio, Connectivity, Battery

The display is a 60Hz 72% NTSC IPS panel from LG (LGD0570, or LP156WF6-SPP2). The display is colour calibrated out of the box. As expected, colours are vibrant, it gets bright (25-30% brightness is enough for indoor use). Ghosting is not severe despite a 60Hz IPS panel.

Audio is kinda mediocre. Background noise is present, mids and highs are not balanced. Bass is absent, max volume is OKish. You can tune the audio via Sound Blaster software though. The speakers are located at the sides (at bottom)

I didn’t have enough time to test battery life, though I might include the results here in future. It has 47Wh battery which is removable from outside (rare nowadays).

Cooling performance

The cooling design consists of 2 separate heatpipes for CPU+GPU, though the CPU side heatpipes are thicker (due to extra heat from higher end desktop CPU like i7 8700). You can take a look at the cooling design via the product page. Kryonaut is applied out of the box. No noticeable uneven core temps can be observed.

Due to time constraints, I only tested the worst-case scenario thermal testing: Aida64 FPU+Unigine Heaven (dx11, medium quality, moderate tessellation, x2 AA, 1080p). This is tested at ambient temp of ~32C. Laptop is plugged in. CPU and GPU are undervolted. Custom fan profile (increased fan speed).

Results:
  • CPU: 3.7-3.8GHz all 6 cores, max 94C, ~57W
  • GPU: 1709MHz, max 74C
  • Fan noise: ~52dBA

Conclusion

A decent, yet affordable 1050TI gaming laptop. Good enough thermals and build quality.
