    Yea, mine went into a infinite BSOD/Black screen loop after a bit over 2 years… right in the middle of my finals week last semester… tried whatever fix I could, failed, sent to the shop and they said the motherboard was damaged beyond repair (although I can still get into the bios, but that's about it)… Could be back luck but still :(

      I can get this one for about €500,- the i7 with 16gb and 1050ti. Is it worth my money? Or should I pass?

        I'd say no, I'm not sure what went wrong with my unit, either it was bad and got past QC, or I installed wrong drivers and fried it or I pushed it too hard despite the bad cooling solution of the model (it was fine when I left it running brute force decryption for days in a row, which was months before it died). Died shortly after the warrantee ended, started BSOD loop as I left it on desktop with no apps running after a short Overwatch session.

        Hoping to get a new laptop soon…

        Maybe you could look into the acer ryzen nitro 5 and lenovo legion 5.

        Good luck.

    Really bad laptop.
    First my charger stopped working. When I bought a new one (original), the battery was damaged. Then after repeated shutdowns, overheating other issues, the motherboard is damaged.

    And this started exactly after 12 months warranty period was over. Looks like they had calibrated the hardware so that it stops working after a year.
    Very disappointed with the quality, and service thereafter. NEVER BUY THIS LAPTOP!!
