Engineers couldn't figure out a way to put a 1060 into this chassis, not even a Max-Q version?

Per product announcement posts I read, it sounds like it's expected down the line. This laptop was just announced a couple of weeks ago.

Not every laptop is designed to fit powerful GPUs into a terrible budget chassis.

If this laptop had a 1060 or 1060 max Q, your response would be "Engineers couldn't figure out a way to put a 1070 into this chassis, not even a Max-Q version?"

I would be cautious buying from Lenovo. I sent a defective laptop back, and after 1 year, I get sent to collections because the returns department hasn't received my laptop. Google Lenovo's collections nightmares.

This with the i5-8300, 8G ram, NVIDIA 1050Ti,1TB 7200 rpm hard drive and 52.5Whr battery for $839.99
or
HP Paviliion Gaming i5-8300, 8G ram, NVIDIA 1050 Ti,1 TB 5400 rpm with 16gb intel optane and 52.5 Whr battery for $789.99?
Almost exactly the same size, HP even a little lighter. Is the HP the better choice?
Anything I'm not considering? Both brands seem equally reputable. Big difference in screen quality? Thermal design?

This Lenovo deal comes with 128GB SSc and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 4GB for the $712.49. For a gaming unit i would spend a little more for more HD space. The HP Pavilion gaming unit sounds a better choice since for the following reasons
1- Optane memory make the unit boot up and work like an SSD laptop
2- more HD space to save games
3- little better graphic and the Ti version can work with VR.
4- double the ram

This is not to say this is not a good deal but HP is more accommodating for the a gamer and we are talking about $80 difference.

do you have the link to the HP unit

I am looking at this from a target audience perspective.
I am looking at G3 / Omen 15 which should have similar sized chassis. They both have max Q 1060.
1060 max-q dissipates less heat than 1050ti in heavy load. Therefore the decision to skip 1060 max-q was probably either 1. engineers couldn't fit it 2. More likely, a marketing decision.
I wouldn't be surprised if Lenovo have another line of 'premium gaming' laptops flaunting higher gpus.

Not even a TI GFX in it, pass. We have had laptops with the 1050TI which makes a difference under the $700 mark so for a normal 1050 pass.
