This V15 turns in a respectable 2533 on 3DMark 11 and 2135 on PCMark 8. This benchmark means the v15 is very fast enough for day-to-day use and playing videos won't be an issue with it's excellent play back mode.
Sound comes from speakers which are placed bottom of the laptop, overall the speakers are decent, they aren't bad in anyway but the bass production could be better but this is due to the laptops positioning of the speaker
The laptop is guaranteed to last you a maximum of 4 hours on a single full charge. It won't last you a whole day meaning you'll need to plug it to an electric source before the day is over
