    The XPG Xenia offers something special than their competitors. With the majority using the latest CPU processors (i7 – 10750H/9750) and graphics cards (NVIDIA’s 1660Ti ~ 2070), it becomes increasingly difficult to choose which gaming laptop to buy. At this point, I was looking for a laptop with other redeeming qualities like peripherals, keyboard, speakers, storage, location of ports, etc. After comparing the thousands of brands flooding the internet, the Xenia caught my attention.Pros: - Optical Switches. This is the main one for me. I never have to worry about my keys getting stuck or just straight up unresponsive. My past laptop had keys that were unresponsive, so I wanted something that was durable, especially for gaming. I haven’t seen other companies do this other than Razer. - Large ports in the back. HDMI, ethernet plug, and power port are behind the laptop. It’s just more convenient. I don’t need to awkwardly bend cables to plug into the side anymore. - Extremely light and thin bevels. The laptop is roughly 4 pounds. I’m thoroughly surprised that it’s pretty thin. I always worry about having a chunky and heavy laptop, but I don’t have to worry too much with the Xenia. - 32GB RAM. I legit don’t have to worry about RAM ever again. 16GB is perfectly fine, but there is nothing wrong with more. Their RAM comes from their parent company ADATA. Thought that was a fun note connecting that. Probably explains why it’s 32GB. - Glass touch pad. It just feels amazing and smooth while using it. You can disable it by double-tapping the top left corner on the pad.Neutral: - Screen matte finish. I personally like screens that has a matte finish, so it doesn’t have glares. Be wary that matte finished screen looks different over glossy screens. - Heat Spots. The heat spots are above the keyboard, so it won’t be on the bottom flat surface of the laptop. - Nothing particularly fancy with the fans. You’ll notice the fan working when you’re playing a triple AAA game, but it isn’t super loud. - Subtle design. The design of the laptop is simple and clean with a good theme of “gamer.” It doesn’t go too crazy with the GAMER feel. For me, the XPG logo in the front is not my personal favorite, but since it’s not obnoxious, I’m okay with it.Cons: - Charging block. It’s a massive brick. I do think it’s overkill that it has to be that humongous. I find it humorous, that a thin light laptop needs such a big chunky charger. - Speaker’s location. There isn’t anything particularly wrong with the speaker itself, but rather the position of it. It’s under the laptop and I’d rather it not be covered. You can still hear fine from it, just being picky.The Xenia is a laptop with great user experience. It comes included with what gamers want but giving that extra flare. The overall build quality is great and definitely durable! I am currently very happy with the laptop and I can see myself using the Xenia for a long time.
    If you’re like me, and have done countless hours of online research trying to find the best value for a gaming laptop out there, just do yourself a favor and buy this XPG Xenia 15. Honestly, how could you go wrong? I hated all of the “mid range” gaming laptops that had more plastic on them than anything else. They creek when you touch them, they’re light and flimsy, and they just scream cheap! This XPG Xenia 15 is fitting with a very popular and generic TongFang magnesium alloy chassis, and it feels incredible. It’s solid, dense, and although it doesn’t feel MacBook Pro quality, it is a very sturdy and quality built computer. I opted for the 1660TI GOU option, but paired with the 9th gen i7 processor and a whopping 32 gigs of ram, this machine is incredibly fast. Now I don’t play esports or AAA title games, but I do play some fairly large file and demanding graphic games on steam, and they run incredibly fast. All of the reviews I’ve watched said the fans are “loud” (gaming laptop fans need to be, I mean ‘c’mon people they’re fans who cares) but I’ve been playing halo MCC for 2+ hours so far, and the fans are barely even audible. I am seeing 144 FPS playing on original (medium) settings (this is the Max due to the 144 hz screen). All the graphic settings maxed out I see anywhere between 105-115 FPS. What an incredible game play this laptop is capable of. Battery life is excellent for a gaming laptop. Just browsing the web and playing around on the computer you can easily see 6.5 hours. Gaming, with RGB’s off you should see 2.5 hours. The mechanical keyboard feels very nice, and is a little tricky to get used to if you aren’t familiar with them, but it’s a nice touch and I’m glad they decided to incorporate it. The touch pad was a big selling point for me, I hate cheap Mylar or plastic track pads, they always feel like crap. The XPG has a Microsoft precision touch glass track pad. It’s perfect, sensitive enough and feels great. I love the port selection on this machine, plenty of USB ports, and even has an Ethernet port in case you need it, very nice thing to see on a 2020 model laptop. The per-key RGB keyboard is fun, and a nice feature that I was not able to find in any other sub $1500 laptops. The RGB strip on the front is really the only thing visible on this computer that would make one question whether or not this is a gaming laptop. All in all, For $1,150 (purchase price when I bought it) how can you find a better spec’d out machine for less money? It’s an Eluktronics mag-15 for $250 less. Literally, I was looking at them. Exact same specs, exact same chassis, but xpg costs less. The only other laptop I was considering purchasing in this category was the Ace Predator Helios 300, but after reading 100’s or product reviews, I’m glad I took a chance on the XPG. Absolute solid machine all around for a very fair price.The only thing I will say that isn’t a positive about the XPG Xenia 15 isn’t a flaw per say, it’s just a personal preference. I wish they offered a 17.3” version as well as a 15.6” version that’s paired with a number pad. Also, the speakers aren’t anything to write home about. At 100% volume it’s very null and just meh overall. I always play with a gaming headset so I’m not concerned about it. Also the speakers are located on the bottom of the laptop so it’s to be expected I suppose.
    To start, the specs on this computer are great - loads things fast, good battery, great video card.Now, to the downsides:- The speakers suck, a cat tied to a car battery would have better sound quality than what they installed.- The trackpad is unusable, I spent 2 minutes trying to close a powerpoint but the track-pad would refuse to move to the upper right, because, you know, I don't need to use a mouse or anything with my computer. Requires a mouse to even function.- Whatever background / os / whatever program they used to 'run it', is totally garbage. Completely frustrating, basic hotkeys that are normal in Windows are removed, because who really needs to open up task-manager? Right?- Due to their OS / Whatever the heck it is they did to the hardware, it cannot open basic files such as Microsoft Word documents, among others. I spent a week of my Graduate program thinking I lost my thesis because the files were broken, to only find out after opening on other computers that, no no, this computer does not believe Microsoft Word is a program that people use. Hopefully you don't use your computer for opening documents.Absolute Hot garbage, don't waste your money, quite easily one of the worst purchases I've ever made. They took beautiful hardware and did something horrible to it in the software and peripherals. I want to sell it, other than I'd be unloading this sinful item onto someone else.(Source: Electrical Engineer).
