The overall design is nice, but once you power on the system, the screen may be the only thing you pay attention to.

This puts the resolution ahead of Apple's MacBook Pro with Retina Display (2,800 by 1,800) and the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K$1,923.51 at Amazon(2,880 by 1,620), and puts it on par with the Toshiba P50T-BST2N01 (3,840 by 2,160).
