It has two large fans and two radiators along with an IR thermal sensor and 3 heat pipes. Although it doesn’t have an edge to edge screen the bezels are sleeker than its earlier models.

One of the features that catch your eye is the webcam kill switch which is meant to disable the webcam if you don’t want to use it. There is a physical button located on the edge of the laptop’s chassis on the right side which prevents the webcam from working by removing the Windows driver from the Windows. In fact, it won’t reflect in the available devices list unless you turn on the switch. There is a dedicated numeric pad for those who are not quite used to taking their fingers up to use the lined-up numbers. The buttons of the backlit keyboard are a bit small though; however, it doesn’t make a lot of difference while using it.
