  1. Well, I have given it some more thought and really want a laptop that has good battery life (over 6 hrs) and is less than 5 lbs. I think I would be fine with giving up some gaming power to achieve this (Medium settings in games should not be too much of an issue). Also, I do plan on running 3D printing software off of my laptop. I also do not want a flashy laptop that looks like it's solely for gaming. I prefer more professional-looking laptops. Any suggests for this?
  2. From what I have read about the TongFang GK5CN6Z, it seems like it is from a Chinese no-brand company, the keyboard is very clicky (I prefer silent) and sounds like a jet lol. What would be your Pros/Cons of the Legion Y530?
  3. What do you think about the Eluktronics Mech-15 G2?
  4. So what are my alternatives then? Anything else apart from the Legion Y530?
  5. I heard that it thermal throttles but isn't that more of a problem if you buy an I9 chip laptop? I think it does not have as many issues with an I7.
  6. What kind of issues? I was going to buy the 8th gen I7 laptop priced at $1499.99 but I got around $250 discount and would be paying $1500 with one year of full warranty (added accidental damage warranty and software warranty to get onsite help) and a $100 Dell gift card. https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/xps-15/spd/xps-15-9570-laptop/dncwxb1656s
  7. What do you think about the XPS 15?
  8. I don't like that the MSI GP63 has low battery life. Everything else about it seems pretty great though. I do kinda like the Legion Y530.
  9. I would say 5 lbs is pushing it (that is not including the power brick). I don't want it to be super heavy since I do have to move around a lot, but I would not let an extra pound or so be a deal-breaker. I do have a macbook pro mid-2012 laptop right now and it is actually a little too heavy but I am used to it by this point.
  10. I am looking to buy a new laptop for school/work/gaming. I really want a laptop that is thin/light and that does not look like a spaceship because I want to be able to use it for work as well. My budget is at around $1500 but would prefer to stay near the lower range. These are the minimum specs I am looking for: - 8th gen i-7 - 8gb + of RAM - 1050Ti graphics card (though I would like to try VR at some point) - at least 5 hours of tested battery life I have been looking at the New XPS 15, New Razer 15 (too pricy for 256 GB of memory), Legion Y530, and ASUS ROG GU501GM. I care more about the battery life because I don't want to be stuck to an outlet unless I am gaming. I also do not mind dropping to medium settings on games. I would consider getting an eGPU to pair with a Razer Stealth laptop if you all think that is a better option for someone like me. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions. P.S. I mainly like to play MMORPGs
