Q: Does it support a docking station? If ‘yes’ what kind of docking station you would recommend me?
Answer by Dan@CCL on 28th November 2016

Q: How will this laptop perform in games?
Answer by Dan@CCL on 28th November 2016
Generally it's going to be lower to mid performance. I'd recommend looking you YouTube for videos of the games you're wanting to play and the processor, so 'GTA V A8-7410' for example if you were wanting to play that and you should find a number of benchmark videos. -Danlevan

Q: What is the specific GPU? I don't want the generic "AMD R5 Graphics" answer, I need to know the full name.
Answer by Website User on 28th November 2016
It doesn't have a "dedicated GPU" as such - as this is an AMD APU, the R5 graphics are built into the processor, and are simply listed by AMD as "Radeon R5 Series". You can see this link for more information -> http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Puma/AMD-A8-Series%20A8-7410.html -Danlevan

Sadly, this quite high spec. laptop suffers from several quality issues. First, the lettering on the keys isn't white but a faint grey, making it quite difficult to see, especially the very small symbols on the Fn keys and some of the punctuation and even worse in low light. Secondly, The Touchpads button clicks are horrible and sound really cheap and loud. Thirdly, the keyboard actually sags quite a lot in the middle when any of the central keys are pressed. It feels very cheap. Lastly, the initial Windows update took over 6 hours to complete. In short, I'm really not happy with it and will be returning it.
