Its 6-inch Full HD sub screen is positioned above the keyboard and uses real-time screen replication.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 or RTX 20280 MaxQ 8GB graphics cards ensure that the notebook can support the most popular titles without cracking. It is associated with 16GB of RAM that can be expanded to 32GB and two 256GB M2 SSDs as storage drives.
The notebook has two speakers set by Bang & Olufsen and supports the DTS Headphone X. The I / O ports include a single USB Type-C port, three USB Type-A ports, one jack headphone / microphone input, RJ-45 connector and HDMI ports.
