Soooo many horror stories about this laptop related to thermal design and build quality. But this sure is tempting at this price point.

Probably trying to clear out old stock before the 5000 series G15 refresh and Alienware Ryzen systems are released in the next month.
Bought this last time with the Amex $100 off deal in Feb. It's good GPU/CPU for the price, but the thermal issues are pretty real. Enable G mode so the fans spin 100% and wear headphones because the fans are pretty loud. Temps are more reasonable with it on. Get a cooling pad or at least a stand for this thing.

Downgrade to BIOS 1.3 to get full performance out of it. Mine came with 1.5. 1.4.4 underclocks the CPU, so I was running into CPU bottlenecks in games such as Genshin Impact. Setup guide on Reddit [reddit.com]

Build quality is OK for the price. I'm used to Dell Business keyboards, so this one does not feel that great. The keys feel a bit smaller than full size and a bit closer than my Latitude e7450. But to be fair, that one is a 14" and is tenkeyless.

My LCD had some backlight glow on dark backgrounds, so a black screen doesn't look uniform. Kinda sucks, but I can live with it.

You have to be careful selecting RAM on this laptop. I bought 16GB of Mushkin DDR4 3200Mhz, but it only runs at 2666Mhz because the voltage or timings are different. It's still fast enough for me, but it's something to watch out for.

Mine had a second NVMe slot instead of a 2.5" slot, despite looking like the chassis can handle one. Could be an alternative version with a different motherboard had it. Perhaps the Intel version?

The bottom comes off as one large piece of plastic. Taking it on and off is a bit less smooth than it should be, but on the plus side everything is pretty accessible this way. I wouldn't want to open it up too often though.

I hear replacing the thermal paste will help with the temperatures, but I haven't done it yet.

So overall, performance is very good for the price if you're willing to put in some work. There are compromises at this price point, so you have to understand what you're getting into. It's not going to be perfect right out of the box.
On a side note, this is cheaper than desktop RX 5600 XT cards are going for on Ebay right now.

Could you sell the card from this and run integrated? How much would it fetch?
No, the graphics card is soldered to the motherboard; it's practically impossible to remove.

This is a great deal. I paid 700 for this during Black Friday. The graphics card trades blows with the 2060 mobile. The screen is pretty bright too. It was crashing a bit during video calls but I updated the drivers and it's running perfect. I would buy this again if I needed another laptop.

Guess it's too risky to mine on this with the thermal issues.

My laptop 1060 can reach 20M hash rate with 66c temperature, you sure about this only doing 23?

Gave me a good laugh but no. Plus this a mobile chip. Can't really compare to a desktop equivalent

I am going to risk it. Will run thermal checks when I get it and if it's too high will just return in the 30 day window.

Building out a desktop gaming PC anyway so could use a cheap portable solution on the side for DayZ and other small size games.
