Battery usage:

26% battery used to watch 125 min of 4K x265 at lowest screen brightness, forced radeon graphics, and silent mode. So with 90% battery usage leaving 10% battery, that would translate to 7.2 hr of movie watching. if your file is 1080p you probably get a little more time. That is excellent for a gaming laptop!

For comparison, the HP Omen 15, I was only able to get so far 5.6 hr of extrapolated playtime like this.

I would like to know this as well. Not sure if the 4900HS processor is as good as the i7 for editing video?
Ryzen is usually better for most productivity, but I heard Intel is better if you use Adobe premiere.

Are there any laptops specced like this but 15"+ with a color accurate 4k screen and styled for professionals? Seems like it would make a compelling alternative to a mbp or a XPS.

Looking at the new dell XPs at Costco right now for $1999. Not sure if that would be good enough for video editing as well. Love the four years warranty through Costco
I bought the Costco deal. Seems like a more rounded computer plus Costco warranty. The webcam also helped push it over.

And your ignorance about reading the spec or the posts is also very bothering. Who said that it has 16GB soldered Ram? It has 8GB soldered in the motherboard and one slot which is having another 8GB stick. If you want, you can replace that 8GB stick with a 32GB stick and get total of 40GB Ram which is plenty for 99.99% users.

I believe only the first 16gb if you want to run dual channel for a total of 24gb

If you are going to use it for mostly programming and soem gaming, then in my opinion, this one is better. RTX 2060 MQ is still plenty of powerful for your gaming needs and it can go way over casual gaming.
Now the Processor, Ryzen 9 4900HS can be up to 40% or even more powerful than i7-10750H, while consuming up to 30W of less power during full load. This will significantly impact your Code compilation times.
And the best part is that since Ryzen CPUs are very power efficient, despite offering way over CPU performance and comparable GPU performance to the M15, while being thinner, lighter and compact, it offers huge battery life, almost Ultrabook level, during normal day to day usage. So, it is easy to carry around with you. Another thing which most people did not mention, it supports Type-C Charging up to 65W. So, instead of carrying the main power brick, you can carry a small 65W Type-C Charger, probably using for your phone and charge it on the go.

2060 Max-Q 65w that's less powerful than a 1660 Ti mobile 80w. With a slow screen. This is not a gaming computer, it's a meme ultraportable workstation, without any of the workstation features.

But hey it's great for running cinebench. LMAO

LMFAO you live under a rock. My Adobe and handbrake workloads are faster than my 8700k.

Yes, that is correct. And 16GB in dual channel is plenty fast.

Would this be good for video editing for YouTube with 4K videos?
Depends on what editing application you're using, but you'll find most of the major ones (Avid, Premiere Pro etc) are built around Intel processors. While AMD processors will likely function okay most editing applications just won't take advantage of all that additional processing power.
