In case anyone was wondering whether the USB-C supported video, the answer is no.

Almost same performance as 1660Ti, not worth the extra 200+ dollars

True that the mobile rtx2060 is similar in performance to the mobile 1660ti and you should not pay more for it. However the overall price on this is still decent. It's not the cheapest but I believe the these have much better cooling so may be worth paying a little extra for.

Man if it had GSync I'd be down for this. It's annoying that most gaming laptop don't have GSync/VRR anymore due to Nvidia Optimus. Most games are not going to run anywhere near 144hz so you are going to have to live with a lot of tearing.... -_-

Basically the rtx2060 mobile is barely faster than a 1660ti mobile.

Also, not sure if covered in this article but the MaxQ 2070/2080 are barely faster than the 2060 mobile. They are more about giving you a slimmer form factor than performance.

How does this compare to the Lenovo Legion Y740, which is also on sale for the same price at Costco?

I see that this is sold out, I wonder if they carry this in stores and if it would be this price in store right now?
