If you're not blown by this laptop, I am not sure what will. The computer is available on Amazon, for a bit under 4 lakh. But you get a real lot for 4 lacks. The laptop features a 7th generation AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX processor. I am blown by the amount of firepower the processor holds. It has 16 cores. 16 cores is a lot, and I remember when I was excited about the Intel Pentium dual-core processors.

As you know, the latest processors also support multithreading. This means that the thread count of the laptop is 32. That's a lot for a laptop that is for personal use. The laptop is a creator edition laptop, meant for people creating videos, photos and music.

The second screen on the laptop is extremely functional. When using photoshop or video editing, the secondary screen can be used as sliders, paint pickers and so on which helps increase the utility of the laptop. I have personally used the dual-screen setup and found that to be quite useful. It's like the mini bar which comes on MacBook but on steroids.

Now, to the party piece, the graphics card. The laptop comes with an Nvidia RTX 4080 graphics card, the latest offering from Nvidia. At 12GB, the video memory the card offers alone is more than the RAM of most laptops. A variant of

With a refresh rate of 240Hz, and a response time of 3ms. This is great for gaming as well as content creation. The display has a 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, which means high colour accuracy.

For unlimited connectivity, the laptop has 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C support DisplayPort/G-SYNC, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C support DisplayPort/power delivery/G-SYNC, and 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port. It comes with a card reader, so you can pop the card directly from your DSLR into the laptop. A LAN port and an HDMI port are what comes by default in almost all laptops today.

The laptop can be easily upgraded, thanks to the dual RAM slots and dual SSD slots. The laptop comes with 32GB RAM and a 2TB SSD.
