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.

Why is this listed on the front page when you can't even buy it?

The laptop was available for pre order when I posted it. It's been available for pre-order on and off throughout the day.

2021 and still no web cam. Can't even use for zoom class.
Why don't they put a webcam on these so they can be at least a bit multifunctional?

Can someone explain why this keeps getting upvoted? Doesn't seem like much of a deal.

A close look and I see two microphones above the screen...what is wrong with them that they didn't implement a webcam (which was one of the main gripes about their G14 predecessor)?

At least the chassis and keys are black this time instead of silver!

Probably not so much that it is or isn't a deal (since it's not even for sale yet), but more about what it is -- next gen Ryzen with top GPU and other specs.

It IS a really nice PC...

How did you find this? I tried searching on Best Buy but all the "coming soon" laptops with RTX 30 cards have Intel CPUs

It should be the first result if you search for "3070 laptop".

Wait isn't this the one at $1499 that said coming soon with a $1299 version at $1099 or $1199 on Bestbuy saying they come Feb 15th?
The other one is still available for $1449 with similar specs.

I haven't looked into reviews personally yet but would be concerned what the thermal profile is for this combination of spec and thin form factor.

Quote from viche :
Also, why is this so much cheaper? Very similar specs. Is it just because it bulkier?

ASUS - TUF 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Intel 11th Gen i7 - 16GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 - 1TB M.2 PCIEG3 SSD - Eclipse Grey - Eclipse Grey

$1,449.99

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus...Id=6448936

I think the TUF perform worse in some games then last years 2070. I think they are limiting this 3070 to 80w. Saw a video by hardware cunucks explaining the bench's.
