What New Features Can Gamers Expect from the New Pulse 15?
Gamers will be glad to hear that it is now sporting an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPU. This makes it a very capable gaming laptop for the 1080p 15.6-inch 72% NTSC Anti-Glare IPS-type display. Despite being a 15.6-inch laptop, it is in a 14-inch body. Which means the bezels are slimmer and looks much modern compared to other gaming notebooks.
The new Pulse 15 also sports an RGB backlit mechanical keyboard. It even retains the numeric keypad, so it is ideal for work as well.

The base configuration with 8GB of DDR4 and 1TB 7200RPM HDD starts at just $1,399. That price is very good considering you still get the i7 CPU and the GTX 1060 GPU.
