If you want in the audio the Evo gaming laptop, is advertised as having thx audio, but it is disappointing to find out that this feature only works through the headphones. Also, the built in speakers are good. They get loud enough to fill a medium sized room and the thx audio software is helpful to fine tune. The settings to your liking in the thermals, the Evo gaming laptop, stayed exceptionally cold during over testing. The hottest location on the laptop is the underside reached 80 degrees Fahrenheit after we conduct a CPU stress test under CPU Z for 15 minutes that is well below over 95 degree, comfort threshold, the touch pad reached only 70 degrees and the center of the keyboard hits 72 degrees, when it comes to battery life Evo gaming laptop, has 46 for our battery unit.

If you utilize the power saving feature, you can probably get more hours of use, which is good enough for students for on campus projects or taking notes during classes when it comes to upgradability, Walmart’s Evo gaming laptop is upgradable, but it comes with the cost of losing Warranty because there’s a warranty void sticker covering one of the screws. So if you want to replace any failed hardware without losing warranty, you have to send the laptop back to the manufacturer for repairs. But if you choose otherwise, you can access the laptop motherboard by room in the screws from the back cover. You need to be careful by removing the back cover with proper tool, but the process is very simple: the laptops motherboard has two m dot: 2 SSD slots and one being used by pre, install m dot; 2 256 GB SSD, but you can add second m dot. 2 SSD as well there’s. Also a third hard drive option as well. You can add 2.5 form factor SATA hard drive, which is a great option to add bigger capacity, hard drive for data storage.

All these are great upgradeable options in the CPU cooling department. We have multiple heat pipes with heat sinks and dual fans. You can adhere the fan noise during general usage, but temperature never cross 80 degrees during our stress test, which means cooling is sufficient enough to keep the laptop temperature under control during gaming or CPU intensive workloads.
The Evo gaming laptop is a good overall performance machine. I wasn’t expecting very much from Evo gaming laptop going into this review, but I’m pleasantly surprised by the performance and build quality of the system.
