This laptop has very solid reviews on everywhere and praised for it's professional look, build quality, cooling and display quality. The display covers 98% of sRGB and over 60% Adobe RGB color gamut and suitable for semi professional editing works as well.

This or the MSI GS65-006 at Best Buy that was $1400? Only downside I can see on this is that its two sticks of 8GB instead of 1 stick of 16GB like the 006, but with memory as cheap as it is, it's not a dealbreaker by any means. Already added a stick of ram to increase total to 32GB, but this one looks really interesting.

Did you buy the MSI? Did it come with a GTX 2070 or 2060? The Lenovo has G Sync which is definitely a bonus.

And this had Thunderbolt 3 Port which I think MSI is lacking. Believe me or not, TB3 port can significantly increase the potential and longevity of a Laptop. Using a TB3 dock, you can have a Desktop like environment and can add an external GPU Dock when the Graphics card on this old.

Yes, already bought and been playing with it. RTX 2060. Have a few weeks to return. This is about $200 cheaper, but to upgrade ram to 32GB would cost about the same so it's a wash on price. GSync is interesting but I hear that does a real number to your laptop battery. I think I might just order one and decide which one I like better.

Yes, I have read it kills the battery much faster but I'm always plugged in so not be a big deal. Not sure if you are able to turn it off if you wanted to when unplugged.

G-Sync eats up battery very quickly because it disables the Nvidia Optimus Graphics switching and the Laptop always runs on the dedicated GPU. But I think this Lenovo model has an option of disabling the G-Sync. The option resides it in its UEFI BIOS where nVidia Optimus can be enabled.

That's a good point about TB3. Ended up pulling the trigger on it with the Eb8s cb.

I'm just being a little nitty, as I have mine plugged in a majority of the time. It looks like you can turn off G-Sync in the Nvidia control panel.

Yes, I was watching pretty closely during the last sale but the 17" was just more then I really wanted to spend. I eventually ended up ordering an Alienware 17R5 this past week but not happy with it. It was a refurb and some keys are making loud clicking noises so would already need to get it serviced or replaced. The thing is almost the size of a desktop computer too, LOL. Seemed to run pretty hot also just from my kid playing TABS (The Game) on it.

Kept going back and forth with the Electronics 17" deal. Almost pulled the trigger 5x in the last hour but I think with this Lenovo you can't go wrong. I really wanted a 17" IPS screen, with a high refresh rate, GSync and would have also liked a 1TB hard drive in it as well but came to terms I need to start sacrificing some things and I think this will be a good compromise. Main use is for video editing but the more I started researching the more I wanted in it and then was like let's use it for gaming too, why not!

Is the deal from last week for the 2070 MaxQ version worth the extra ~$150?
