    I legit think that most companies HATE the existence of this gaming laptop. This puts a LOT of pressure on companies to make something competitive.

      @Charles Vernier Make your own enclosure, with a nice screen u good to go, and u loose like 12 to 20% (at maximum) big WOW....this for people on the MOVE constantly, but don't wanna carry bulky and heavy gaming laptops ( actually I am here to justify meself of buying a g-laptop) I don't need a static home rig, cuz yeah mostly away from home, but spending that much money (and believe me here in europe parts and techs are expensive ( lucky muricans) !!!

      I received the laptop yesterday and have some questions
      1- The product I received has more hinge gap on left and less on right so is it common or should I replace?
      2- My laptop came with firefox installed, should I be concerned about it?
      3- Does the turbo mode button have backlit button or normal button?

                                      great warning dave i had the 2018 model and i'm still using it and it's great but the thermals when i play on it is really bad especially because i game on it on bed when i'm at the desk i'm using my pc. it gets really hot and it gets really uncomforatble so i under volted it to -160mv (the most i could get while stable) and it's better but still not good enough defiantly still gets hot

                                              One review on Amazon says that they get the BSOD and that this laptop is known for issues like this, some says they have issues with faulty keyboards, manufacturing errors and stuff like that. Aside from those, it got some really good reviews. But I'm worried, I was considering buying this now I'm not sure. I'm not too familiar with this kind of stuff, I just want a good gaming laptop for its price. 😓 Can anyone help out with this?

My only issue is the storage so I’m buying a ssd and a cooling pad to take care of it. Btw, while playing destiny 2 on medium settings the temperatures are around 75-80 on all 3, is that good?

                                                                      I currently have a nitro 5 and I'm looking to upgrade because I cant run newer games very well even when at low.
