That's the high price I pay for the portability I need. I wouldn't wish gaming on a 9900K @ 5 GHz., and 210 watt desktop 2080 on my worst enemy!You still paid way too much for pretty crappy performance.
I guess it's still better than using a console.
Don't get me wrong, I have a craptop myself, also for portability. The thing is, I won't pay tons of money for a gaming-grade craptop. I have an ASUS Vivobook with an R5-3500U/Vega 8 (Whatever Vega 8 means) with a mobile GTX 1050. It cost me about $700CAD and is great for non-gaming tasks.That's the high price I pay for the portability I need.

They're probably as good as anyone else. The vast majority of these "manufacturers" are anything but. Most of these craptops are made by a company in Taiwan called Quanta Computer. These brands just buy a Quanta design, modify it a little and throw their branding on them.How is Razer quality in their laptops?
I was about to make almost the same post!Thanks for the review. So, the HW is not getting to its full potential, AND, it is bl**dy loud too, but hey, it is small, thin and sexy. I really do wonder who do they design these products, and much, much more importnantly, will peaople actually buy them?
I have had a few gaming laptops, all much thicker and bigger than this, and was always wishing they were a bit chunkier. I would be happily carrying around a pound more, if it meant a better performing machine (and don't get me started with the "necessity" of 4K screens on 15.6", or even at 17.3)
I wish these HW elements were implemented in a nice, chunky laptop (a bit like old Alienware), so we could use their potential to the full, and/or it would be less hot and less loud. I keep dreaming
For gaming, well, that's what my desktop R5-3600X and RX 5700 XT are for. I've learnt that a high-end gaming craptop costs more than a mainstream craptop and a gaming desktop combined.
