Within 6 months rtx 4000, rx 7000, ryzen 7000, and intel 13th gen will be announced / released, so the prices will most likely drop as well. Waiting till BF is a good choice if you can do so.

If not, this is the best bang for buck to hold you off until next gen arrives. Buying higher tier laptops is at a point of diminishing return, and lower tier gpu like the 3050ti are crippled by its low 4gb vram, and 3060 is 35-50% faster than 3050ti anyways. https://youtu.be/FBL6skkk38Y

The video above tested the same chassis with 140W 3070 with Ryzen 9 5900HX. The GPU are not throttling, but the CPU does throttle. It throttles not by much though, where 5900HX have 8 cores with 4.6Ghz max boost, and that test only throttles to 3.9 - 4Ghz.

This deal only uses 130W 3060 and Ryzen 5 5600H (6 cores, 4.2Ghz max boost), so I can safely assume the GPU will not be throttling, while the CPU either won't throttle or only have slight throttling.

I ordered it 2 weeks ago. It has not been shipped even though it has been in stock for the last week. CSR said it's being shipped by the manufacturer.

I reached out to CS twice since originally ordering mine. Delayed twice even though "in stock" as you stated.

1st time I contacted CS, 6/20. the rep told me it was OOS at the original warehouse and had to ship it from another one (ok??). They "assured" me it would ship out the same day and I would receive an email shortly.

Reached out again on 6/23 after receiving no email and the 2nd rep told me it arrive by 6/30. Not wanting to risk it being delayed again and them auto-cancelling it, I ordered a second one for in-store pick-up on 6/29.

Frustrating.

This is a 130W RTX 3060, so I assume this laptop overheats and throttles so you do not get full potential of it? Highly unlikely, but if it doesn't and has a very good thermal, this is a great deal. Any ideas?

I cancelled the order because of the same problem you had. Best Buy screws me over again. I feel like Charlie Brown and the football when it comes to this problem and Best Buy

I would like to know how thermals are as well. If it is not prone to overheating this is a great deal if you can't wait for the 40 series cards.

I've recently purchased an HP Omen with 3060 (max tdp of 100w). Is there a major difference between this tdp of 130w vs the Omen 100w? New to the whole laptop GPU. I never knew can be throttled.

Finally 3060s back to normal prices instead of crazy inflated to $1,500.

I canceled previous order and re-ordered today. Had to do live chat because cancelation option isn't available on the status page.

Re-ordered it for store pickup, but I am not very hopeful. The CSR said the product is not in hand. So it may still end up delayed forever.
