Looking for RTX 2080 Laptop Reccomendations

Looking for people that own RTX 2080 laptops that would recommend them.

Due to the nature of my job and having to move around, having a desktop is not possible for me at the moment.
Ideally gearing towards performance rather than aesthetics. I don't mind carrying around a big boi vs a thin and light.


The Alienware Area 51m looks hella nice but at 4049 its a bit much to buy without some input first.

Budget is around 3-3.5k USD, but could spend more if your user experience has been amazing.

Specs wanted:
I'm fine with a i7 but at this price range having a i9 would be sweet
16GB of ram minimum
Needs to have a SSD
Needs to have at least 1TB of internal storage

The Area-51m is currently the best laptop along with the Clevo P870TM. They are the only true desktop replacements with desktop class CPUs.


There is also the MSI GT75 Titan which has one of the best cooling in any laptop due to its Cooler Titan Boost Technology (MSI naming of their heatsink/cooling setup). It can be configured with up to an RTX 2080 GPU and has the i9-8950HK CPU which is a very decent CPU that I've had in my previous MSI GT75 Titan 8RG which had the last gen GTX 1080.


I recommend you get any of them from a reputed reseller who offers thermal upgrades and good quality control to ensure you get a laptop that works 100% out of the box.


I recommend HIDevolution whom I've bought 4 laptops in the past 5 years and they were all perfect and their customer service is superb!


When configuring any of those laptops, if you were getting it from them, I recommend you choose "Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut + Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads" in the configurator as that will improve the temps by up to 20C which is a must for these laptops with high end CPUs.
