This Laptop is same as the XMG APEX 15 and it is one of the better performing Ryzen Laptops with RTX 3070. Below is the Jarrod's Tech Review link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4HkK-khPuk
The GPU is a max powered RTX 3070, and using the Software, you can configure it from 115W to 125W. 125W is the max for RTX 3070 and using dynamic Boost, it can go up to 140W.

Might add the word "laptop" to the title/OP. Lots of us are using deal alerts to look out for these.

The CPU is the main thing which sticks out from all of the other 3070 full-size machines in this price range. However, without any sort of cashback offer and/or internal rewards system (ie: Lenovo MyRewards or Perksatwork), this really doesnt qualify as slick.

MIR directly comes from Gigabyte, not newegg.

You post a lot of laptop deals, You could maintain a scale and assign a number so that people can know how you rate the laptops.

I thought the specs were perfect for my needs and I wanted to pick up the 17" version of this but came to find out that the PCIe is Gen3 only! So you won't be able to fully utilize the speeds of any gen4 drives which was the1 deal breaker.

Just wondering. Do you have a practical application for those drive speeds? Last I heard, for most use cases, it wasn't really necessary to have PCIe 4. I also seem to recall it's power hungry.
