Overpower the Competition

Level up to boundary-breaking performance, game-changing discrete graphics, and stunning display options—all in a thin and light design. The 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors in these laptops deliver the performance and responsiveness gamers demand, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060/3070 graphics provide the power to rip through demanding games.

The three display options, including QHD 165 Hz, provide cinematic quality for visually intense gaming and content creation, and the five ports make it easy to connect every peripheral. The 15.6" laptops also feature a massive 94Whr battery and a PCIe Gen 4 SSD with four lanes to the CPU for high bandwidth and low latency.

With a two-year Intel warranty and high-end touches like the optical-mechanical keyboard, all on a chassis that weighs less than 2 kg, these laptops are ready to power elite experiences.
