External Reviews

Sentiment Score 85%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
Under load, the top of the chassis gets as hot as 37.9 °C (100.22 °F) The middle of the device gets the hottest. Bang & Olufsen-tuned speakers have no trouble reproducing the mids and the highs. The speakers are fine for Zoom and Skype calls, but they are not ideal for listening to music.
