QWER

The one obvious MOBA-customized feature of the Hero Edition are the highlighted QWER keys rather than WASD. That only really matters if you look down at your keyboard when you're supposed to be using them.

Keyboard

Overall, the keyboard is comfortable to use, laid out well for touch typing and gaming, and responsive.

A full set o' connections

On one side there's an SD card slot, USB-C connector (not Thunderbolt/fast data) and two USB Type-A.

Arranged for VR

The other side has a Mini DisplayPort connector, HDMI and two USB Type-A ports -- the Type-A next to the HDMI is convenient for a headset, and that leaves connections on either side for the sensor.

Screen

The display is a 120Hz, TN-WVA (wide viewing angle) which is good for gaming.

Touchpad

The touchpad is unusually good for a gaming laptop.

Lap feel

It's a bit unweildy to use in your lap, unless you've got a really big lap.

But it doesn't. It's a metallic red, though, which does look like it's glowing under certain lighting conditions.
