Taking a different route from its regular naming conventions of its gaming laptops, Illegear has officially unveiled its latest gaming laptop – the Illegear Laguna, which will be the older sibling to the Illegear Z5. Some new features of the Laguna include a redesigned RGB full-size keyboard, a smart RGB touchpad, a bigger battery, a revamped chassis and redesigned thermal cooling components.
One of the key selling points of the Laguna will be the use of the NVIDIA GTX 1070 graphics card with dedicated 8GB graphics option. There will also be a GTX 1060 option, which will have a dedicated 6GB graphics option. The Laguna will also come with the 7th Gen. Intel-Core i7-7700HQ processor and a 15.6-inch Full HD display with anti-glare capabilities while also featuring IPS/AVHA Wide Colour & Wide View.
In terms of storage and RAM capabilities, the Laguna supports dual channel DDR4 and can be expanded up to 32GB, depending on the 8GB/16GB SODIMM module. It can also hold up to 3TB of storage with the ability to fit one changeable 2.5” HDD/SSD as well as one M.2280 SSD, SATA or PCIe Gen. 3.
To ensure that you maintain a stable and consistent Internet connection that wouldn’t disrupt your gameplay, the Laguna will have a built-in Gigabit Ethernet LAN along with the Killer Dual Band Wireless-AC with Bluetooth as well as M.2 interface. What’s great about the Laguna is that it isn’t lacking in the ports department as it comes with: –
- 2x USB 3.1 Gen. 2 ports (1x USB Type-C),
- 2x USB 3.1 Gen. 1 ports
- 1x audio combo jack (Headphone-out & Mic-in)
- 1x RJ-45 LAN (10/100/1000 Mbps)
- 1x HDMI Output port
- 1x MiniDisplay port
The Laguna also isn’t one to shy away from the current trend of RGB lighting as it will have two LEDs on its back casing as well as another two LEDs below the palm rest. A great feature of the Laguna is that every LED lighting can be customised through its pre-installed Control Center program. You will also be able to monitor the system’s current performance including its usage, CPU and GPU temperature and even adjust the power plan settings. However, the design of the Laguna will be slightly different compared to the Z5 as it will be 3.1mm thinner as well as having smaller dimensions.
