    One of the first laptops out there with the AMD / Nvidia Combo. It's super thin for the performance and price. Would you get this?

      Texts look blocky for sure. But I didn't expect 1080P to look horrible for games as well. I returned my Zephyrus after one week usage.
      I started using Retina MacBook Pro since 2012. Later I got a 4K Dell XPS. It's really hard to adapt to sub-200 PPI now.

      @Rol Res its really simple. 15-17inch is too small of a panel to take full benefit of 1440p plus laptop specs are much less powerful to handle 1440p gaming at a decent fps. Couple all of that with parts that are already much more expensive than a desktop and you have your answer on why manufacturers dont go with 1440p panels.

      @Allan Sh for 15 inch display, nah it definitely isnt too low and it's not even subjective at that point.

          I bought one tonight and I love it! The only complaint I have is that the fans are loud but it doesn't really bother me but I got it on sale for 1000!

                      Why the Y740? Battery life is trash with less than 2hrs. Are you serious like for power yes but for a LAPTOP thats for taking out with you the battery life aint doing you any good.

                              I just got the $1200 on sale at Best Buy for $1000 yesterday. I'm pretty happy with it overall.

                                Hey Dave, I ended up picking up the 16GB brand new from bestbuy at 899.99 on a flash sale, it was the best bang for the buck at the time and I am loving it, do you think I should have gone with anything else at that price point?

                                    It’s on sale for $999 right now, should I get it?? I don’t game heavily on it and I just want to use it for music production, the slimness plus the specs is what’s making me go for it and the build quality is so good too when I saw it

                                        EZKATKA it was probably the one with a 60hz screen and a 1660 max q. There are multiple configs ya know. Even dave 2d said the helios was the best laptop around $1000

                                                  If you get to 1200 bucks, you just need to push just a little harder to get the top tier longer lasting laptops

                                                    I got a rog hero 2 this year and the panel on that is fantastic colors seriously pop I think I got one of the good ones then again it does say on theyre website that it has 100 percent srgb . You would be surprised just how much more performance u can get in I a bit bulkier laptop . its fantastic the highest ever that I got was 80c and like 79 on gpu compared to dell xps that was like 97c and 72c its throttled down hardcore

                                                        Dave Lee, a point you didn't mention is that in all the tests I've seen the ryzen chip while beat out by its Intel counterparts it also did so with greater power efficiency. Add that to the monster battery and power efficient GPU, it's great for more mobile users who aren't tied to the wall all the time. I run off power in my van on the go and after returning a more powerful Dell g3 I was happy with the performance to power I got . Just something to consider.

But raw performance wise, this lacks behind the similar laptops like the Lenovo Legion or the Helios 300. But temps and noise level is better than those 2. Only issue is I can't seem to find a way to undervolt the ryzen cpu in here, cuz AMD doesnt have one for ryzen laptops.

                                                                                  For thermals, it tends to get warm if ur gaming on performance or turbo mode where the fan kicks in loud, but its managable. Honestly, you might wanna look at the new Predator Helios 300, since its at the same price point ($1200), but comes with an i7 and a non max-q 1660ti.
