The best laptop you'll ever own

I couldn't be more impressed with the MECH-17 laptop. I came across it because I was searching for a good gaming laptop that didn't have an abysmal keyboard layout. As a programmer, I use a lot of keys that are usually hidden or have to be accessed with the function key on other laptop. This laptop just has the perfect layout. It seems like this company understood that a lot of us work with our laptops and that at the end of the day, we also want to game. I also love that you can order this laptop barebone. A lot of us like to pick, choose and buy our own components in a desktop. We finally have the chance to do the same with this laptop. All in all, this is an amazing machine and your ideal game/work laptop. Here are the pros and cons: Pros; - Amazing keyboard and layout - Very slim and lightweight for a gaming laptop - Sleek design and not too flashy so you can actually take it to a meeting. - Very responsive trackpad - Awesome performance - Very crisp 144hz monitor - Being able customize it and order it barebone (without SSDs and memory). - The price. You aren't going to get any better for the price. Cons: - Power adapter cord is too short. You have to have it sitting on the table in most setups. Unfortunately this can't be changed because it's the part that's fixed to the adapter. - The keyboard keys has some deadzones (keystroke won't register). As much as the keyboard is amazing, the keys unfortunately have some deadzones. This occurs with you press only at the top of the key (happens the most with the spacebar). I guess over time I might get more use to it and hit the keys better but this could definitely be improved. - Lacking documentation for the internals and DIY. It wasn't clear how the SATA SSD should be installed (could only screw it in with two screws as there weren't any long enough screws included secure it in all four corners). - The fans on high performance are really loud. Although a con, it is something that just cannot be circumvented with a laptop this thin. It's an FYI more than anything.

Power Driven, great options

My setup: i7-8750 32gb 2666 RAM dual channel 16gb 1tb ProX eluktron NVMe main drive RTX 2070 (Max-P or in other words, a regular 2070) * I got the upgraded thermal paste thrown in there too This machine is going to be my gaming rig, but mainly I do my CAD work on here. it does this very nicely, solidworks, Blender, some 2D stuff (Not really intensive though) I needed the 32gb for rendering scenes in blender because they can saturate that RAM real quick sometimes. The mechanical keyboard is super, but getting used to the funky layout took a bit. The thermals are decent with regular use. You can actually use this laptop ON your lap when doing the little things like browser and office type things. Gaming: I don't really have the game arsenal some others do, but i did go out and get GTA5, borderlands 2, and simcity5 (Cuz why not). GTA5 is probably the most intense of those titles, and i did turn up all them settings including the 144hz screen video setting. 144hz is so smooth compared to my High-end thinkpad workstation laptop. While I'm not a FPS chaser, i do appreciate smooth game-play, and this little tiny thin thing really pulls it off with that 2070 GPU. If you don't have a breathable surface under the laptop, you might be dancing with high 80 to low 90C temps. I routed out a surface with holes to fresh air, and GTA5 keeps my machine around 70C. I came from a desktop with a GTX 1080, and i would say the laptop RTX2070 seems to be comparable in performance. Thermals are more favorable in the desktop though. All in all, a very big relief that this machine lives up to the task compared to my desktop because i didn't have the room for a desktop anymore. It's hard to believe how tiny this thing is compared to other 17" laptops. Lastly, customer service is very prompt and delightful, so thanks eluktron!
