Not fit for purpose? It's not weird that it's out preformed by the much larger gaming laptops with comparible specs, because they have much more space for thermal management, so that the hardware can be used more effectively. But apparently the real purpose of this laptop is missed, it's meant to be light and more portable then other gaming laptops. Sure, it's a waste that this is at a cost of preformance, but all laptops have this problem, a desktop with comparible specs would easily outpreform every gaming laptop. So if you care so much about preformance, don't buy a laptop, if you want a semi-portable device that is suitable for gaming, buy a large and heavy gaming laptop and if you want even more portability and a very sleek design buy this laptop. I bought it for personal use and for my study and it perfectly build for this, I don't see myself carrying a 4+ kg laptop all day, so you should compare this laptop with laptops from the same size and weight. You can't compare apples with pears and so be it with laptops. And finally the lack of a optical drive is not a problem at all, my previous laptop had one and I allmost never used it, you can use the virtual drives provide by mounting programs or use usb device for reboothing etc.
