  1. If you have a Microcenter they have the PowerSpec 1520. Otherwise there's the Eluk Mech 15. The GP65 could be decent but I don't know all that much about it.
  2. Huh the RGB one was fine for years for me, I'm not aware of majors issues with them.
  3. Is it the RGB keyboard or the white one? Strange. As for the screen that's a normal price.
  4. You may need to contact a reseller. I'm not in the UK so I don't know the market that well. Who ever sells Clevos now over there could be who to contact.
  5. Honestly AW has a terrible overall track record lately, so I just don't have any confidence in what they're putting out. The Dell G7 was outperforming the AW 15 with an i9 in some benches I remember. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/361611133737631755/500137206539878400/3DM11.PNG The problem is the 2080 units though. I'd want to monitor it closely if I owned one. A scary number have killed their units.
  6. It does now... I'm not worried about that machine yet though until we start to see reports of less of them catching on fire or burning themselves out. Any laptop that gets recalled at that price point is really not worth looking at for a while. I edited the post though adding both of that in thanks.
  7. If you could run an Aida cpu + heaven gpu test at the same time that'd be great. I'm on the LTT Discord and SuggestALaptop Discords if you wanted to reach out there. I'd love to see those number!
  8. Front page is live! The old guide is still included as a spoiler so that the first 18 pages of comments make some semblence of sense.
  9. For ram if you just want the best: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAL3TYY For ssds I'd go with a Samsung 860 Evo or Crucial MX500 if you can use sata. If the slots are pcie only a 960 evo or something. pcie speeds matter less in real world performance compared to an HDD vs sata ssd.
  10. That's something I can definitely help you with... Many laptops are struggling at cooling the cpu. I'm a suggestalaptop moderator on Reddit so you can also get help my tagging me. I'm in the LTT Discord and the SuggestALaptop Discord server. We can help once we know your requirements.
  11. Let me know what you guys think of that first pass, and if you think it should have a new post! There are... Some models missing. I'm a little hesistant to put them up since they're really hard to find info on or have been shown to perform quite poorly. Acer Triton models don't really make much sense right now for example. I also didn't put the Blade or Aero yet. I also favor performance at smaller sizes. So while I'll probably edit in the 17" versions of a lot of these models to me the 15" version is more practical. I stop doing this at the really high end price ranges for 2080s where 17" models make more sense.
  12. Alright here we go... First draft: (Also while I'm revising this over time, do you guys think I should make a new thread or not?) The plan is to update these listings as we get more info for what can cool and what has known issues. The RTX Gaming Laptop Guide ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Other Guides: Computer Parts | Reseller Guide So this time around I'm dividing by graphics card. That's because the prices this gen are all over the place and in general don't fit any nice cut off points like under 1500... Unfortunately for RTX you'll be paying more than that. Note that until I reach the portables section these laptops are more focused on performance and non max q components. Categories: RTX 2060 Machines RTX 2070 Machines RTX 2080 Machine No Limit Portables IMPORTANT: Links are to view the product. It doesn't mean that's where you should buy from. BE CAREFUL TO AVOID 1x16GB ram stick. You'll take a significant performance hit this gen with single channel RAM. BASE PRICE: Generally what I'd consider a starting config price range. Should be about 16GB of ram and either an ssd + hdd or larger sized ssd. I try and make it a "base" useful config. A config with 8GB of ram for gaming is fairly useless. Owner's lounges (where actual owners of the models discuss their machines) will be linked, though not everything has an owners lounge. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ RTX 2060 Machines: This is where stuff starts getting good. Now we have some serious gaming horsepower coming into the mix, with the GTX 1060 present in all recommendations. Anything less is not a smart use of money for a gaming machine in this price range.

That's my current guide to gaming laptops. It will be updated as more stuff comes out most likely. For Clevo laptops I'd recommend a Prema partner like HIDEvolution in the U.S. If they cost too much find a cheaper option like LPC-Digital (Larry is awesome there), GentechPC, XoticPC, or Eurocom. HID, GenTechPC, and Xotic are also good for other brands as they sell a ton. HID is the only reseller I'm aware of with Razer though. There are of course other gaming laptops that could be right for you, but in general these are the best of the best machines out there. Good luck shopping!
  13. RTX laptops... Some initial models available are the: TongFang units like the Eluktronics Mech 15 G2 and Mech 17 G1R. Asus GL504/GL704 MSI GE series, GP series, GS series Aorus 15 W9 and X9 Clevo P960, P750, P775, and PB50 units AW M15, Area 51M More to come, but I'm trying to get a handle on how cpu cooling is on many of these units first.
