Interfaces include: 4 x USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen1), 1 x USB-C (USB 3.1 Gen1) Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 2.0, miniDisplayPort 1.4 and a microSDXC card reader.
A special cooling system should not only provide sufficient cooling of the CPU/GPU, but also ensure that no particles accumulate in the housing. The keyboard is not only illuminated, but for each individual key you can define a different background exposure color via AURA - intended for controlling games, but also practical when using different programs for video editing, where the key colors can be specified for each program depending on the function. The operating system is Windows 10 Home/Pro.
