This seems like a great price considering it is the only laptop with this form factor and resolution at that price.

They don’t brand them as MaxQ anymore. The GPU has a rated TGP from nVidia and the laptop maker is free to do whatever they want as far as performance/power levels. This is really going to confuse the market since the only way to know where the performance/power levels are for a given device is via benchmarking. In some cases a 3070 mobile will outperform a 3080 mobile, so don’t buy anything until you e seen the reviews and benchmarks on it.

The no webcam thing to me is a puzzle, especially in today's world, but I can understand the lack of IR. That is most definitely a legacy port by today's standards.
The IR is for Windows Hello face recognition.

Got mine yesterday too. Overall very happy with it. Super impressed with the performance and battery life, agreed the screen bleed is slight and it could be brighter but the colors are beautiful

I made a bootable back up first with a 16Gb USB thumb drive.
Open Settings.
Click on Update & Security.
Click on Backup.
Under the "Looking for an older backup?" section, click the Go to Backup and Restore (Windows 7) option.

Then used Microsoft's Clean Install Software here - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/s...startfresh

Seems like Bestbuy is getting Asus to build them versions w/ 8GB soldered if their G14 is any indication...hoping this isn't the same w/ the G15 :-(

Anyone else experiencing UPS weather related delays? Package was sent out 2/15, it is now 8 days later and still nothing has arrived, and UPS tracking doesn't show any specific tracking location showing what city it has passed thru and where it is currently as it usually does, instead it just shows a status of "in transit" and nothing more.

EDIT: okay, it arrived

I ordered Open Box GEEK SQUAD CERTIFIED for 125$ off. How worthy is it for this pricey laptop? I don't have experience with bestbuy before and I don't know how these open box items are.

I'm about to return mine because there is a gap between the frond and back panel of the screen (towards the bottom).

Notably, Best Buy marked this computer down to $1749 yesterday (from $1799). It is out of stock unfortunately, but for anyone who bought this recently, you can call/chat customer service and get a refund of the difference.
