Clevo P970RN/RF/RD, P970EN/EF/ED - around 2.5kg, ~5 hrs battery life

Hi,

 

I am looking for a slim gaming laptop that I can use in office and after that play games i.e. Total War or CyberPunk2077. I often work outside of my office so I was thinking about Alienware m15 or Asus Zephyrus S due to size and weight. Could you give me your recommendations?

 

Thanks in advance

The only gaming laptop that I’ve seen that is office friendly is the Razer Blade 15 in the white version. If you’re at like an IT office or gaming studio then the zephyrus or M15 would be fine. If you’re not, I would recommend leaving those at home and grabbing like an LG Gram for work.

Location? Budget? Preferred max weight in kg/lbs? Any preference on battery life?


Feel free to ask for recommendations if you're looking for a new lappy!

I had an Alienware m15 a couple of months back and I loved it. You wouldn't believe such a thin and sleek laptop would pack so much power under the hood and still carry that Alienware DNA in its design which is not as flashy as it bigger brother Alienware models since this is the thin and light version, it doesn't have the flashy lights and whatnot which might actually be a good thing if you're going to use it in an office environment.

 

I bought mine from HIDevolution and had them repaste it with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut + Fujipoly Extreme Thermal pads to keep the temps in check. I also ordered it with the 90WHr battery to have more battery life although that upgrades eliminates the 2,.5 inch slot for a conventional HDD/SSD and you'd have to stick to the two m.2 SATA SSDs (supports NVMe)

 

you'd get Dell's excellent on site support as standard and lifetime tech support from HIDevolution + their added quality control to ensure you'll get a laptop that works perfectly.

 

Take a look at the models here and order it with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut like I did: Alienware m15 Models

I'm from Poland. Budget around 2500 Eur. Weight also around 2,5 kg is fine. Battery life at least 5 h would be nice.

I thought about Razor but I heard that quality is often an issue. I will check LG.

If you care about non gamery looking laptop I would reccomend the razer blade 15 or the latest zephyrus G or M. The zephyrus S is an amazing choice but doesn't look like something you would use for work on the go with it's opening bottom lid. The alienware's are ussually given good ratings by reviewers so....

I hear the MSI GS65 has bad build quality so don't go there.

Nice, Never had any MSI products. Is the quality ok? Did you have any experience with customer service in case of problems? 

Msi is amazing when it comes to build quality and customer support too

Razer laptops have terrible QC, Asus QC isn't great either

 

AWs have mediocre cooling solution

 

GS65 RTX don't have build quality issue anymore

Not 'amazing' considering that it has more inconsistent QC, potential build quality issues like broken hinge and not so great build quality in lower end models

There is no Max-Q 2060
