Additional perks include a 1080p30 web camera, four built-in microphones with noise cancellation, and an SDXC card reader, along with Wi-Fi 6E. In “quiet mode,” owners can expect six to eight hours on a single charge; the battery is replaceable. In extreme mode for high frame rates, the battery life will drop to two to three hours.
The laptop also contains two USB 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt 3 compatibility, one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port, an a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A port.
The $2,699 model comes with AMD’s Ryzen 7 6800HS, an 8-core, 16-thread CPU processor with a max clock speed at 4.4GHz. For graphics, the laptop uses an AMD Radeon RX 6800M mobile GPU.

The $2,999 version also has double the DDR5 RAM at 32GB, and double the PCIe 4.0 NVME SSD storage at 2TB, but the GPU remains the same.
Both laptops can run on Windows 11 Home or the more expensive Windows 11 Pro.
