WHY WE FELL FOR IT
Gaming power in a notebook that can fit in your bag
The 14 is not going to so much as shiver with the toughest games in the planet. We tested the device with Need For Speed Most Wanted and the responsiveness was amazing. The M14 does heat up quite a bit, but much lesser than the larger models we have tested before. The battery is not all that great and lasts a maximum of four hours. But that is a common problem.
Despite the all-black body, the 14 is a riot of colour with a backlit keyboard and trackpad. The colours of the backlit trackpad can alos be customised like that of the keys and that too in multiple combinations. This AlienFX system lighting lets you set a myriad number of colour combinations. The keys are very sturdy with reinforced plates below and have the right travel.
SIGHTS AND SOUNDS
The screen is crisp with good viewing angles. But we doubt if a screen this size will satisfy all gamers. The audio is really good thanks to the 5.1 speakers powered by Dolby Home Theatre v4 and Klipsch. It is undoubtedly the loudest speakers for any laptop this size. You can also plug this to a 7.1 system through HDMI.
There is a backlit trackpad, with customisable colour
The keypad lights can also be customised from Command
