I went ahead and pulled the trigger without being 100% sure because the deal went out of stock so fast last time.

Can anyone else hard-confirm?

9 states tax free is "mostly" like this country is "mostly" COVID-19 free.

This compares well to the Legion on FP. Already bought the Lenovo or else I would be on this

If you can get the tax free price, it's a solid deal. Price drops for a kind of laptop with this hardware won't be that significant over the next 8 months until laptops with the RTX 30 series or AMD GPUs start replacing this market segment. Personally, I would evaluate my need for a gaming laptop especially with this design for mobile gaming. I bought a gaming laptop 2 years ago thinking I'd like the mobility but I basically used it as a desktop 95% of the time. If you're going to do that, just wait till the the fall / winter for the RTX 30 series and big navi. Desktops with those will be at least a couple hundred bucks more but will have at least 50% more performance than this laptop and will be pretty future proof for some time.

Pretty good for the performance you are getting: https://youtu.be/35G5s0F9PRA?t=216

I just recently learned that the Lenovo Legion 5i has such "excellent" thermals compared to the Helios only because it literally forces the GPU to run at the lowest 80w mode whereas the Helios allows you to push up to 90w -- in the Lenovo system, your 2060 will be "gimped" in performance compared to the same 2060 in the Helios.

In other words the Helios give you more control and allows you to choose how you like your performance-to-thermal settings.

As with almost all laptops, undervolting and using a cooling pad will help.

I went with the Helios.

Only if you force the settings, brightness, etc down to the lowest.

Poor battery life is one of the common "cons" for this laptop: https://youtu.be/0kU_tCOKi3M?t=69
