The Signature 17's ultra sharp 17.3" Full HD IPS LED-Backlit Display shows off your movies, projects and games in crystal-clear full 1080p so you get the best multimedia experience possible both at home and on the go. IPS technology means better viewing angles, brighter and more accurate colors, and crisper images. NVIDIA G-SYNC, the groundbreaking new display technology that delivers the smoothest and fastest gaming experience ever. G-SYNC's revolutionary performance eliminates screen tearing and minimizes display stutter and input lag.

The Signature 17 was designed with the same ideals as our award winning desktops - refined aesthetics paired with jaw-dropping power. Sleek stylings and premium rubberized finish give the Signature 17 a look that's a great fit for both gaming and business. And at just 1.5" in thickness, the Signature 17 is the thinnest desktop replacement laptop on the market. In addition, the Signature 17's re-engineered cooling system performs where others fail, surpassing the demands of next gen gaming and demanding applications.

By configuring your Signature 17 with dual M.2 drives in RAID 0 for speeds up to 2,000 MB/s and adding up to two solid state or mechanical drives for additional storage, your games and media creations don't stand a chance. You won't find a laptop with more storage options anywhere in the world. And the best part - it's all fully customizable to meet your specific needs.

Make the Signature 17 your own with this fully programmable gaming macro LED illuminated keyboard that allows you to change colors and effects to your exact specifications. Includes number pad for quicker data input and full-sized Backspace, Enter, and Spacebar keys to give you that desktop feel without the hassle of an external keyboard.

If you’ve ever bought a computer from the behemoth, mass produced competition, you know bloatware.
