    Can it run Internet Explorer? O.o

  • DelFang

    I think the minimum specs required to run IE was with a Titan Z (and/or the AMD equivalent). Don’t quote me, I could be wrong.

    Don’t mind those people on fb carl or anyone of you from KG who’s reading, they are still kind of immature they don’t understand the meaning of Desktop Replacements may be cause they are not caught up in a tight schedule or just need power on the move and have access to pc when they need em.
    it’s a cool portable system right here designed for those who need em.
    it’s all about what you need where and when you need it and something that can fulfill that.
    I love desktops but these gaming laptops aren’t that far behind.
