I haven't seen a specific test, but based on the recommendations with similar specs here it should probably be good: https://www.laptopmag.com/article...dy-laptops

I'm assuming this is cheaper because it's a 60Hz screen? Link doesn't disclose, which usually means it's only a 60

The 15" of this is literally just a couple of hours on battery. Not really made to be used off power but it is portable. I see it as a workstation I can bring around with me.

Also, don't forget cash back sites to score a little more back.

I still think the deal on this MSI is better:

https://slickdeals.net/f/14138627-msi-gl65-leopard-gaming-laptop-144hz-i7-10750h-rtx2070-16gb-ram-512gb-ssd-1399?src=catpagev2_SearchBarV2_cat

The MSI has the full power 2070 mobile as opposed to this one having the Max Q. It also has the Gen 10 i7 which is better.

For what it's worth the Lenovo is a 17" screen as opposed to the 15" MSI. If that doesnt matter to you then the MSI is for sure better

I use mine plugged in always, but from every review I read, battery life kinda sucks. Screen is fine if you get the LG one. I think there was an earlier version that had problems with bleed and poor light distribution, but mine has the LG and has none of those issues. Brightness is about average in its class.
Temps have been okay after undervolting -140mV and raising the back with a laptop stand. Fans are very quiet, which was a priority for me after having an Asus with crazy loud fans. The iCue lighting integration sucks but is manageable. If you want something with more portability, though, just get a 15" laptop. This thing is a tank, which is fine for my use.
I'm happy enough with it that I picked up a warranty extension for 4 years total for an extra $112.

I purchased this exact laptop last year when for maybe only a few hours, a bunch or discounts stacked up, plus another 5% or was it 10% and also 13% cash back. I think it ended up at about this price or slightly lower. Got a steal on it honestly if a year later its still selling for the same.

Speeds are amazing. It's 2x2 AC WiFi is used on a 160mhz channel will max out WiFi at a gigabit with of course low utilization and very little interference.

The SSD is fast. Never used the internal HDD.

The screen is the only gripe I have with this. 300nit is really the minimum one needs to enjoy most visuals. Can only Imagine the 500nit models are much better.

The video card I don't know why so many downplay it. I like it. Doom Eternal on ultimate settings does around 100-140+FPS all the time. It's very smooth thanks to the 144hz screen.

The light show you can create and stack is also pretty cool. Nothing more than a wow factor but also functional if you want to set different colors to just about any key or set of keys you want and even effects layered on.

For what it's worth, I really like it and recommend it. Would I go with newer, sure, but this was most likely the best model out of last year and still holds strong this year.

Thermals are also very good and aren't as loud as some other gaming laptops if you do the research.

Good review and thank you for posting. Quick question, do you use the laptop on your lap or mostly on a desk?

I suspect that we both purchased a Lenovo laptop around the same time last year, but I went with ThinkPad p73 models. Sure, they are workstations, but one of them had the same CPU and the RTX 3000 (one RTX 4000) and another had the 98x with the RTX 5000. They all ran super hot and could not be used on a lap even with jeans on.
