Mech 17, 2070 RTX Revew

Good customer support and the laptop is is theoretically the best bang for the buck on the market. Only four stars because the benchmark scores were disappointing, indicating my laptop was getting lower than average for the laptop version of the 2070 RTX. I was getting even lower scores than the max q version in some cases and am not sure why. In the end, the performance of the games and applications are what matter for using the laptop instead of some number on 3DMark. In this regard, I have not run into any issues except for the fans being super loud. Along this point, the GPU runs hot but this is expected for a gaming laptop.

Solid performance without extras.

Overall this is the best most capable laptop I have ever had the pleasure of using. That includes products such as Asus zephyrus m and aero15x form gigabyte. Pros: Fast - I really mean lightning fast here. PUBG at ultra settings was sitting between 120-144fps solid. 144hz screen - although not the best on the market it is definitely in the top three with only zephyrus 3ms and arorus screens edging it out slightly. Very solid brightness and color. Keyboard - best I ever used on a laptop. In fact it's so good that for gaming I unplug my high-end mechanical keyboard in favor of the onboard. No bloatware - it has what it needs to run and nothing else. First laptop I have had that was usable out of the box. Thermals - this is a huge selling point. The exhaust is hot but the internal temperature is really cool. I ran a number of worst case synthetic benchmarks and wasn't able to get it to thermal throttle. That is with the 2070rtx card and i7 8750H. I also purchased the liquid metal upgrade and was totally worth the money. Support - quick call got me a real person who helped me troubleshoot without using a script. 10 of 10 points Cons: Battery - really bad but with what is inside no surprise there. Audio - the 3.5mm Jack was solid audio but the onboard speakers might as well not exist. Wasn't even able to hear a YouTube video in a moderately quiet room. Track pad - it felt like the old windows 98 laptop I had almost 20 years ago. Usable but almost not. No thunderbolt 3 - Most may not care but those of us who need it really do need it. Screen shakes a bit when typing but not very bad over all. All in all I really like the laptop. Room to improve but still a most buy for anyone looking to game. The cons listed here are the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. If even a few were fixed it would be a solid 5.
