The slight touch of the maroon red both on the lid of the laptop as well as the keyboard inside further brings out the devilish tinge to it that you just can’t miss out on.

It also does have the flexibility to offer multiple connectivity options, thus making it a good option for the price point that you have. The combination of the Bang & Olufsen speakers along with the in-house HP Audio Boost technology ensures to bring forth the best kind of audio while you are enjoying the games.

The combination of the best technology used ensures to provide with amazing color payoff, vibrant visuals and an immaculate and real depiction of the virtual world that you are in.
With the basics of the build, design and the display out, it is time to focus on the main hero of the event – the performance.

The combination of the amazing display and the audio output further takes this experience up by a notch. You won’t have to ever settle with the experience because of the amazing craftsmanship that the developers have put into it.
Battery Life and the Accessory
Coming on to the battery life, you wouldn’t be the most impressed with it. The system runs on the Windows 10 Home operating system and won’t last you a longer time if you are consistently streaming your game for an extended period of time.
The time frame might not be the worst but for the price point, you can definitely get other gaming laptops which perform better in terms of the battery life.
If you are using this at a straight with multitasking and even constant gaming and the basic work, it is not going to last you more than 2-3 hours which is pretty disappointing. Similar models in the same price range do claim to provide with at least 5-7 hours.
