In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.


Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Our office is now inhabited by the former, and we're looking forward to seeing the improvements made year on year by going to 12th Gen processors and DDR5 memory. Also, you c[...]

Disassembly, maintenance and upgrade options

The process of opening this laptop is not very straightforward. Although it is easy to upgrade its memory and storage, we find it adventuristic to get to the cooling setup.

Remove the bottom plate To access this notebook's internals, you need to undo 8 Phillips-head screws. Then, pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool, starting from the front two corners. 2.
