Set your sights on the MECH-15 G2, Eluktronics second iteration of a gaming laptop with a mechanical keyboard.  This second generation substantially reduces z-height, adds metal to the design structure and a completely revamped mechanical keyboard.  This beautiful system offers a 15.6" display in the frame of a 14" chassis thanks to an extremely thin and narrow bezel design.  An extremely thin form factor at just .86" offers Intel's 8th generation six-core processor and Nvidia's 1060 graphics.  The impressive thermal design allows for a regular 1060 graphics option instead of a lower performing Max-Q edition as well.  This is the thinnest laptop on the market with a mechanical keyboard and it even features per-key RGB backlighting with the ability to remove and replace key caps and an RGB light bar.  Change each and every key color to your liking or choose from fun sequences while maintaining the tactile response in which mechanical keyboards provide.  Crank your settings up to ultra and prepare for the future of gaming with Eluktronics!

Best Value

This computer is the best value you can get for the specs it has. I was looking for a high performance laptop like this, but all the main brands we're well above 2k for the specs I needed. This computer has it all, it has a great cpu, a great graphics chip, and the screen is top notch 144hz. The big bonus is the mechanical keyboard that is individually lit. It feels a bit small and wierd at first but you soon fall in love with typing on this keyboard! I had a raid set up with two ssd drives fail and had some trouble when I first got it, but customer support worked with me and we got it working again. The computer has been solid for weeks, I have a feeling I messed with the settings when downloading Adobe. Only 2 downsides. First the chipset it is running gets very hot and the computer is so thin that you can feel the heat in the aluminum - however the cooling management and fan set up are great and I haven't seen any performance issues. The fans do get extremely loud. Lastly the speakers are absolute garbage, so make sure to get a headset and stereo. Other than those couple things the computer is perfect for the price. You cannot find a better laptop for under 2k!

An amazing value with a lot to offer, but still needs some fine adjustment

You'll find that for the money, you can't find a better laptop with comparable specs out there at the same price this one is offered at without compromising on the screen, size, or weight. This laptop is lightning fast, handles games great, and is fantastically portable. This isn't to mention the included RGB mechanical keyboard, IPS 144Hz screen with impressively small bezels, and stylish but not flashy design. Performance: -Overall, it is good but not great. I do feel like it could handle the heat that the GTX1060 puts out better if it came with a more quality thermal paste. They offered better paste at an inflated price on their website, but this option should have honestly been the only option offered. The fans do kick up, and it will throttle in games like Destiny 2. I wish it could get smooth 80-90 fps to take advantage of the higher refresh rate screen I opted to pay more for, but often find myself in the 50-60 range when action picks up. Keyboard: -A large selling point this laptop has is its full layout mechanical keyboard with full RGB. I love the fully customizable keys that the included software has and all the modes they included. You'll find out quickly that this keyboard has some severe drawbacks you'll need to consider ahead of time. Obviously the layout is forced to be closer together spacing-wise to accommodate the number pad on the right. While it is very impressive for them to get the keyboard to the VERY edge of both edges of the laptop, you will find it hard to adjust to at first with the right shift key being shorter, arrow keys closer than what you're used to, and all keys a lot closer together than your average keyboard. It comes with the territory though so I can't fault Eluktronics for that. -The largest negative you'll dislike the most about this keyboard is its inconsistency. You'll often find yourself thinking you hit a key because you heard the click, but no character would register. This happens the most on the spacebar and you'll oftentypewords mashed together. Training yourself to type harder on the spacebar is something I've found myself having to do. This isn't even mentioning the inconsistency you'll find between the sound of the clicks when typing. My "s" key is noticeably higher pitch in sound when hit compared to my "h". It's a picky detail, but it's there for improvement for the next generation I hope. Software: -Their software included with the laptop looks like it was thoughtfully designed and handles all the features you'd expect from other parties like Razer or Corsair in RGB lighting. Very well done for the RGB side of things. -Including utilities like the fan controls and misc. settings are often helpful for what I need the laptop for. -My biggest gripe is that it doesn't go far enough. If I want to push my fan to max, I can do that. If I want to set it to a lower speed however, I'm limited to how low I can go. Conclusion: I wanted a laptop that was thin, light, could play games, had a high refresh rate screen, a mechanical keyboard, small bezels.......all for under $1,500. This is the only one on the market I managed to find below that price. It's impressive and it will serve you well. Eluktronics' build quality is certainly good and not a knock-off by any means, but they need to include better thermals, the option for a larger battery, and a more consistent keyboard to earn 5 stars in my book. I hope to see improvements like those in their next iteration of this machine.
