  1. Of course! Thank you SO much for your help. I apologize for me being a little consumerized bitch when it comes to brands and such. I will be purchasing that configuration.
  2. And you think that would last 4 hours of light libreoffice or firefox use?
  3. http://www.xoticpc.com/shared_product/index/configure/id/19437/ So something like this?
  4. So what sub-$2100 Clevo model do you suggest for me? I've decided that I will take the slightly larger chassis and higher weight for less compromises in performance.
  5. How loud are the Clevo models? If you know. I also just want to really minimize the weight as I bike about 8 miles to class every day, and it would be in my bag.
  6. Money. Also, is there really a big difference between the 6700HQ and the 6820HK? From the look of it, they seem pretty evenly matched with very little differences. I do a lot of productivity work (Premiere, AE, etc.) so the 4K display would definitely be a useful addition, along with the 32GB. I think the thing everyone is forgetting, is that I am using this for school primarily and gaming secondary. That's why I've been going for the "thin and light" models, as I'd like to be able to have a machine that can last 3-4 hours on a charge while taking notes/doing research, etc. Would the Gigabyte model really be a terrible option? I feel like if I acquired some external laptop cooling solution, that it wouldn't get killed by the small form factor for occasional 30m-3 hour gaming sessions here or there.
  7. Is this a terrible model? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16834233181 If it would help, I could get a decent external laptop cooler for when I have heavier workloads.
  8. So, as of now I think I am going to be going with the NP8153-S from Sager in the following configuration: - 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ Processor ( 6MB Smart Cache, 2.60GHz) - 15.6" 4K QFHD Matte Display with G-SYNC Technology (3840 x 2160) Back Order! (ETA: 08/30/2016) [+$100.00] - Guaranteed no dead or partially-lit pixels for first 30 days of purchasing - Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU with 8GB GDDR5 Video Memory - IC Diamond Thermal Compound - CPU + GPU - Windows® 10 Home 64-Bit Edition Preinstalled - 32GB Dual Channel DDR4 SDRAM at 2400MHz - 2 X 16GB [+$125.00] - RAID-1 Storage ( Data Mirror - Requires 2 identical drives ) - 256GB SanDisk X400 M.2 SSD (as Storage Drive) - 256GB SanDisk X400 M.2 SSD in RAID configuration [+$100.00] - None [-$40.00] - Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 M.2 AC Wireless LAN + Bluetooth Module Which comes to a grand total of: $2,034.00 Or the MSI Phantom PRO-006 in the following configuration: http://www.xoticpc.com/shared_product/index/configure/id/19422/ Which comes to a grand total of: $2,068.00 in the following configuration: http://www.xoticpc.com/shared_product/index/configure/id/19424/ Which comes to a grand total of: $2,074.83 The first option is a sort of balance between performance and size, while the second puts more of the emphasis on size, and the third is all performance. Let me know what your guys' thoughts are. @Dackzy@Pendragon@D2ultima
  9. That's quite disappointing, cause that model is pretty much exactly what I wanted in a new laptop But alas, does MSI have the super terrible CS and QC like ASUS? Or are they an option?
  10. After searching the web a lot, and it seems that from what I've seen that ASUS has really stepped up their game in the past year when it comes to customer service and general QC. I could be wrong, but that really seems to be the case. Notebookcheck gave the last iteration of the 15.6" ASUS model very good reviews on most fronts, including cooling. If ASUS really is that bad then I will go with a Clevo model (probably from SAGER, then flash premo) or possibly an MSI once I do some more research. @Dackzy @Pendragon @D2ultima
  11. Higher resolution would be nice. I guess I just don't get what's so bad about the 15.6" ASUS model.
  12. Not sure yet. I have a bit of time to make the decision, and I'm still mulling it all over.
