    I will update this review if anything goes wrong. So far the laptop is a 9/10.

    So far this laptop has been fantastic. After reading lots of complaints about the software, the first thing I did was reinstall windows on a new Samsung 960 NVMe SSD. With this new install of windows, it has been stable and speedy. The build quality is exemplary, especially since so many gaming laptop manufacturers are using very thin aluminum pieces. The keyboard is slightly stiff, but I was still able to get used to it quickly. The number pad is nice to have. The 144 Hz screen is a treat to use. I am so happy they chose to include 3 USB type A ports instead of going all type C. Having a Full-sized SD card reader is great.

    The only serious con so far is that the speakers are pretty bad. I usually use headphones so it isn't much of an issue for me.

    Disclosure: this review was written for a $20 steam gift card in return. This will not change the content of my review.
