The keyboard is backlit, making it easier to type in the dark or dim lighting.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.width

412.8mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.Has a flip and fold design
AfterShock SM-17 17.3" Intel Core i7-6700HQ 2.6GHz / 8GB / 120GB
A flip and fold design allows you to fold the screen over the keyboard and transform the device into a tablet, without splitting the device into two pieces.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Display

1.resolution

1920 x 1080px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.has anti-reflection coating

Performance

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Uses flash storage
AfterShock SM-17 17.3" Intel Core i7-6700HQ 2.6GHz / 8GB / 120GB
Flash-based storage devices such as SSDs have no mechanical components. Due to this, they are typically faster, run silently, and are more shock resistant than traditional HDDs.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.CPU speed

4 x 2.6GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
6.has an external memory slot
AfterShock SM-17 17.3" Intel Core i7-6700HQ 2.6GHz / 8GB / 120GB
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.

Connectivity

1.Has USB Type-C
AfterShock SM-17 17.3" Intel Core i7-6700HQ 2.6GHz / 8GB / 120GB
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
2.has an HDMI output
AfterShock SM-17 17.3" Intel Core i7-6700HQ 2.6GHz / 8GB / 120GB
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
More USB 3.0 ports allow you to connect more devices to your computer that support USB 3.0. USB 3.0 is an improved version of USB 2.0 which offers faster transfer rates.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
RJ-45 ports are used for LAN (Local Area Network) connections. With more ports you can achieve increased bandwidth across a LAN, or connect to multiple networks. It also has the added benefit of not losing connection to the network if one fails.
Thunderbolt is a connection that allows you to attach external peripherals to a computer, and can carry both data and display signals. Using a single port you can connect up to six devices through a hub or daisy chain configuration.
