    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.

                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.

                                  So the reason some laptops having big fans at back so they can't keep the speaker near that fan and keeping speakers near hand rest kind of as dust and other things may directly enter it as of from down facing ones the risk is low

                                                  How did you open the back cover? I tried to open mine, and it just doesn't come off. I followed the instructions (loosen but don't remove cover screw, and unscrew the rest), but still doesn't come off.

                                                    @Akdas Ya, thats a partial reason why I bought this. 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.

                                                    @Akdas Its on the lighter side imo. My last laptop was an Dell Inspiron 7559 (gtx 960m 4gb).

                                                    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.

I do agree that laptops should not be intact on the bezel panel- i mean the chinese just intercepted our internet connection, didn't know how long they had been looking through my webcam from my old asus laptop. I'm glad I just bought a new laptop of gx701 model that way my odds are better when comes to privacy breach.
