The Windows 10-powered device comes with Cortana, Windows Ink, and Windows Hello along with optional 4G connectivity.

This gaming laptop comes with the usual Intel 8th generation Core i7 processors, support for Xbox controller dongle, dual-fans to keep the laptop cool during extended gaming sessions, and an RGB back-lit keyboard along with overclocking capabilities.
