damn, the legion line is making gaming laptops more affordable. I was lucky enough to get the overpowered 15+ with gtx1060 and was able to use a $80 egiftcard for further discount. The price gap is too great for me between the OP and this legion (also got other things I need to buy). But this is a great price for a laptop that ticks all the marks for a gaming laptop. I am ogling over the full rtx card, gysnc and Software enbled Dolby Vision HDR. 17" is nice but cost more.

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.
That still does not enable the Optimus Graphics switching and uses the dedicated GPU all the time. You need to do that in the BIOS.

Did you buy the MSI? Did it come with a GTX 2070 or 2060? The Lenovo has G Sync which is definitely a bonus.
GS65 is a thermal disaster and requires you to basically do a full disassembly to do some basic upgrades.

Y740 has great thermals, g sync, icue, and easy to access all the guts you need to. Gsync is great as well.

Also Lenovo is easier to deal with than MSI. Warranty extension is cheap and recommended.

This is a great deal for anyone who needs a laptop that doesn't look "gamery", has excellent build quality, and easy upgrades.

Be warned about reports of back light bleed, you may need to swap units out once or twice to get a great panel. I had a y740 17" back in February and had back light problems, then the delays hit and I decided to wait on upgrading.

FYI it isn't true Dolby Vision HDR. It only supports HDR via streaming, so it doesn't work outside of the handful of apps designed for it. Screen still looks great though.

A lot of panels have the same compatibility. The Alienware Area-51m panel doesn't even advertise HDR, yet it has the same compatibility as the y740.

Yea, it is 300 nits Dolby vision software but should still make color and highlights better. And I assume the dv & hdr10 are enabled in things like Netflix & games based on description? The laptop manufacturer still needs to license it from Dolby so it is nice that this laptop has it while others don't.

This is insanity. Does it stack? I just added the accidental protection to get my order to $1250 to get the full $125 back.

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.
That's not a downside my friend, big FPS increase by having two sticks on these. Look it up

Yep, I'm just saying it's a downside because instead of getting 1 16GB stick to increase it to 32GB total like I did with the MSI GS65, you have to buy 2. But I was never going to run it with just single channel.

Absolutely not. It only works in streaming apps, not games.

Stream HD Video - YES
Play HDR Games and Apps - NO
Use WCG Apps - NO

It is barely a plus. The screen isn't that bright and it doesn't have exceptional contrast.

There is absolutely no reason to pick the laptop you linked over the Lenovo. If the Lenovo comes back in stock, I would say grab it.

The Lenovo has the newer RTX 2060 GPU. Also comes with a 144hz GSync monitor and a Thunderbolt 3 port. Even if you have no plans to use the port anytime soon, just having it instead of not is still a plus in my opinion. You never know what you might want to add 3 years down the line to boost what your laptop can do.
