Stop thinking about buying this. Just do it.
Those who have known me for a while surely found it out of character that I purchased a MECH-15 G2Rx. With my strong opinions against thin and light BGA "turdbooks" and my passion for competitive overclocking, I am sure some folks even found it hypocritical. And, that would be understandable if they did. My contempt for anemic BGA notebook trash is great, but I am almost equally (or more) fed up with severely overpriced DTR laptops with desktop CPUs and MXM graphics that overheat, have been emasculated by cancer firmware and cannot be upgraded due to the manufacturer intentionally changing things to make upgrades extremely difficult. For that very reason I abandoned notebooks a couple of years ago. Well, things change. My opinions haven't, but my needs have. When I found myself needing a good notebook for business travel that I could play some games on in my hotel room after work (and use for work during the day) I landed on this baby. After doing my homework, which included the awesome YouTube reviews from Bob of All Trades and OWNORDISOWN (both good friends), the choice was clear. Nothing in my $1500 price range can compare to the specs, performance, build quality and aesthetics. While I do wish that it had a "K" processor, overall I am very pleased with this product. It looks fantastic, runs great and it is built extremely well. It is super easy to work on. Taking its form factor into account, thermal management is good as well. I have no regrets and highly recommend this product for anyone that wants something that ticks all of the boxes except for overclocking. This purchase was also my first experience with Eluktronics. It would be unjust for me to not mention that my experience with them has also been outstanding. They shipped the product swiftly and communicated with me in a friendly and timely manner. I had a minor technical issue and it was resolved immediately, and to my complete satisfaction. Good folks, so I can whole-heartedly recommend them with the same high respect as I can this product. I haven't had much time for a lot of gaming yet, but did notice that with all of the settings maxed out I was seeing consistently north of 100 FPS in Gears of War 4. Here are my specs: MECH-15 G2Rx Slim & Light RTS Laptop Processor: Intel Core i7-9750H (2.6-4.5GHz 12MB Cache) Graphics Card: 6GB GDDR6 NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 2060 w/EluktroBoost Display: 15.6" Narrow Bezel 144Hz FHD IPS Anti-Glare (1920 x 1080) Memory: 16GB (2x8GB) Generic DDR4-2666 Storage: 512GB Eluktronics NVMe SSD* Battery: 4 Cell 62.32WHr (takes up HDD Bay) Operating System: Windows 10 Home* Warranty Options: 1 Year Eluktronics Warranty Thermal Cooling Solution: Standard Thermal Compound** Here is how I am rating things on a 1 to 5 scale with 1 being unacceptable, 3 average and 5 superior: Price: 5 Specs: 4 Performance: 4 Build Quality: 5 Aesthetics: 5 Thermals: 4** Display: 5 Keyboard: 5 Audio: 3 Overall: 4.5 **You'll either need to do it yourself or pay Eluktronics for better thermal paste. The temps are not good with the standard thermal compound. I didn't expect it to be and the 4 rating is with better thermal compound applied. My rating Would be 3 with the standard thermal paste included at no cost. I gave it a 4 because I am rating the product and not the thermal paste. *I've upgraded the drives to dual M.2 1TB SSDs and the OS to Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019. Final verdict: Solid win for me and for Eluktronics. Highly recommend this one. Don't expect it to be something it's not. It is a great little gaming notebook that is also suitable for business use. It is NOT a high end overclocking notebook. It is an amazing value as currently priced and I am completely satisfied with my purchase.
