I was waiting for Ryzen 4 but price of this laptop is getting closer to undeniable point. 4k oled screen and GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, so close to perfect. Now I'm confused

I bought this laptop at the same time I had a Razer Blade 15 and a MSI GS65.

I can concur that it's the most amazing display I've ever seen on a laptop. That being said, I didn't keep it (Kept the MSI GS65). Main reasons being battery life, keyboard, and overall design.

OLED in my experience, does not save battery life. Of all 3 laptops, it had the worst by a mile, even when set to a black wallpaper and 50% screen brightness. On average I'd get 4-4.5 hrs. MSI I get 6+ hrs.

Personal preference, but I also can't stand num pads on laptops. The off-center keyboard and trackpad just irk me like crazy. Keys themselves also didn't feel great, and the font on the keys themselves are ugly (IMO). Also, the back lighting isn't "fluid". the animations are kind of jerky.

Which brings me to the design, granted, for a gaming laptop it's understated, but it's still to "cyber gamer" for me. The font on the keys, the sharp angles, etc.. It's been decades and PC manufacturers still service some sort of phantom demographic of 13 year olds with thousands of dollars in disposable income. I don't get it.

However, I will say for this price, and assuming you're going to stay tethered to a power supply most of the time, this is a killer deal. Display is absolutely top notch. Laptop 1660ti is super underrated. I run Overwatch on High at a full 144fps on a 1440p 144hz monitor. Also runs COD MW on that same monitor maintaining 120-144hz on high pretty easily. Most benchmarks put it at, or not far behind a GTX 2060.

The only thing I don't understand is at this price point they didn't throw in another $30 8gb stick of ddr4.

correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the GPU has enough horsepower to push playable fps on 4K resolution.

Bought this laptop and returned. I could never get used to the keyboard and track pad offset. It's abnormal lol. The speakers suck as well.

But literally in every other category, the laptop was a beast and well built!

This is 100% correct, I have a 2070 MaxQ laptop and it struggles to play new games on my 4k external monitor unless I really scale back the quality settings. I honestly don't see the point of a 15" 4k screen, everything requires way more GPU power for a marginal quality increase.

This one comes with factory calibrated and does provide very good color accuracy out of the box. Check the review of those YouTubers for this laptop.

Both of you are way wrong thinking this is a gaming laptop and blabbering about the 4K panel and GPU performance. This is not a gaming laptop but a high end productivity machine like Dell XPS 15 or Lenovo X1 Extreme series.
And 4K resolution does help a lot in Productivity tasks, the main reason the laptop is intended for, like Video and Photo editing.

No need to be condescending. I seriously doubt everyone considering this laptop is using it for photo and video editing. Lots of people will buy it as a nicer gaming laptop since this has a much better GPU than the Dell and Lenovo models you mentioned. And I'm giving my perspective that a 4K resolution on a 15" screen is very often not worth it and can be a performance/battery hog since you're pushing so many pixels and it doesn't look that much better.

At this price, no one will buy this for a gaming Computer because it has a 60 Hz Panel which is not a good for high FPS games, GTX 1660 Ti is a good GPU for may be 1080P but anything over it, it will just stumble.
Your perspective of having 4K display is based on your assumption of this being a Gaming Laptop which is completely incorrect. I do a lot of video editing and if you have done any 4K video editing, you will learn to appreciate a highly calibrated color accurate 4K display with wide color gamut coverage.
For pushing a 4K display for editing work, the GPU GTX 1660 Ti will be just fine for any editing software like Adobe Premiere pro or Sony VEGAS or Adobe Photoshop.

And regarding your battery life, forget even the 4K panel, how many gaming laptop you have seen lasting for more than 3 hours under load in Battery. On the contrary, this laptop can actually provide you way better battery life than any other standard gaming laptops due to having a huge 96 hours battery. When you are not pushing the laptop and doing your daily stuff, mixed usage, it can go over 7 hours which is literary a dream for any gaming laptop at its price point.

There's no such thing as a content creation laptop, they're all bad for such purposes.
