Quote from mrintro :
Yea I hope people know that 3080 laptop is no where near the desktop version.
I think the issue is that some people are assuming that the difference would be similar to how the mobile and desktop rtx 20- series compared, with about a 10-15% difference. But there was only a difference in wattage of 165w (dynamic boost) for mobile and 225w for the desktop version. Now the new rtx 30-series is using 330w for their desktop version so it's going to be harder for the mobile chips to compete

Quote from mattheww1024 :
No there's a vast difference between the rtx desktop and rtx mobile gpu and that's when comparing a full powered mobile rtx 3080 and not this weaker version. Most testing has put the rtx desktop version as being 50-60% faster than the mobile version. You're looking at more like desktop rtx 20-series of gpu power
Dang. That's more than a generational leap in performance, yet it's reasonable due to power differences. I think I'll wait for a 3070/80 desktop with the gap being that wide.

Quote from Suryasis :
May be one of the aspects but mostly what we mean by content creation are: -
  • Video Editing in high resolution, using professional grade filters, from raw video files or very large files. These normally require a very well calibrated and high color gamut display, powerful CPU and GPU and a lot of Ram.
  • Photo Editing in professional level.
  • Engineering project and simulation runs using various Industry standard software. Example can be MATLAB Engineering projects, Machine learning, AI based programs, different simulators
  • CAD based works which can be both 2D and 3D
  • Application development which requires compiling big codes, projects and even your game development.
  • Encoding works like Video encoding using GPU acceleration.
There can be many more but those are some standard type of works people normally do with these kind of Productivity machines.
Thanks for explaining. Smilie

RAM is fully upgradeable with 2 slots, this configuration should be a 2x8 GB so just swap in your new preferred kit. Older generations used to have a 16GB stick occupying one of the slots, which was nice in some ways (no need to replace for dual channel) but also annoying in others (have to match with a compatible 16GB stick).


Again, I don't get why people are complaining about the price and buying used. Obviously all laptops have massive depreciation but they aren't meant to be financial investments. Buy them if you have a need for the productivity it brings or if you want the latest and greatest at all costs. Don't buy it and then expect to make a financial return - put your money in a prudent investment vehicle instead.

People complaining about resale value and how "overpriced" something is on slickdeals are clowns. Relative to the previous price this is a good deal, and while prices may probably drop another 10-20% (probably more for higher margin laptops like this) as the chip supply crunch eases, if you need something like this soon, it's a good deal. Don't need something like this? Don't buy it, but don't act like you have some kind of moral authority.

Edit: I bought the 2018 version of this laptop, with the i7-8750H and the GTX 1070 (hence a step down) at $2300. Just to put it in perspective


As Suryasis noted, you can also find this price on Newegg if you're west coast located.
