Looks good. If only it was more neutral like xps17 for people who may use it for productivity too.

By neutral, what do you mean? The specs are pretty good and should work well for productivity, I would think. The GE75 with a TB hard drive plus the 512 SSD was on sale at Costco online last week for $1099.00. The GF75 Thin with the i5 Gen 10 is $849. Costco keeps mixing and matching the CPUs and changing prices.

I mean I don't want laptops screaming "I play games on it" if I'm using it in the office environment.

I understand. I did buy the one on sale last week for the specs, but I use it in my home office. My second HP laptop crapped out on me at a bad time and wasn't willing to give HP any more of my dollars.

This is the view of the laptop with the lid opened [ca-richimage.com]. Aside from the red shield logo, there isn't anything there that really screams "I play games on it!", aside from maybe the RGB backlighting on the keyboard, which can easily be disabled.

I really don't think it stands out that much and to be honest, I don't really care what somewhat else might think about the laptop I use. I burned that bridge when I bought muscle and sports cars. Smilie

So you are the muscle man but are getting a laptop with no muscle?

When I inquired about the $1,300 MSI "GF75 Thin Gaming Laptop" RTX 3060 GPU in the link below, the MSI chat rep said that "It has a 75W TGP and a 45W TDP". Boy, do they cripple the thin laptops?!

Quote from rruff :
There is no such thing as "standard wattage" for 3000 series cards. 2000 series had MaxQ and "everything else" which narrowed it down a little.
----
3000 series cards have an optional feature whereby they can boost to a higher power level if the CPU demand is low. For instance the max on a 3060 is 115W-130W, where that extra 15W is the extra boost.

I already made a comparison earlier in this thread... and I'll add the 2070S

3060@60W= 94%
2060@115W= 100%
2070@115W= 110%
3060@115W= 115%
2070S@115W= 120%
Quote from atoneapone :
Good information in this thread to compare RTX 2000/ 3000 GPUs. So the 2070S is the only 2000 gpu that rivals a full 3060.
I also found this site that compares GPUs with TDP power. But they left out the lower powered 60w and 80w RTX 3060. I'm guessing they could range to anything between a RTX 2060 90w and RTX 2070, depending on a specific game/resolution, & benchmarks.

Look at that! All you need to do is announce this in your office environment so people know you're pro

just turn off the lights for the keyboard or tape up the sticker

what other part of the laptop makes it stand out?

what kind of office do you work at where they judge you by the way your laptop looks? strange

Perfect. That's what I thought. I pulled the trigger on the 2060 legion 5 Walmart 949 deal last week. Looks like I'll get as good if not better performance than this
