    When it comes to gaming, having gone from 1080 to 4k on a 15in display, and from 60hz to 100hz, I'll say that the latter is a much more substantial difference than the former, especially when considering fast paced games. Even an ultra-wide curved display is a more significant improvement than going from 1080 to 4k on a 15in display.
    For productivity, it goes ultrawide, 4k, then 100hz.
    Obviously this is a statement of opinion, and others might have a different view.

    so having a QHD 120Hz screen allow the best of both world ;)

    I mostly play BF1 all day lol. So it’s pretty smooth, but I don’t need perfect 60.

    But it stays consistent at 48-75 with G-Sync off

    I’m a little more relaxed with frame rates as G-Sync helps smooth things out in the lower end, but after about 45 is my threshold lol it’s buzzing but not wavvyy

    Also, some TN’s are IPS worthy.

    The Dell G-Sync 24” and 27” 1440P monitors are both Tn displays @144, and 165Hz respectively.

    They look like IPS displays, with impressive viewing angles.

    I just don’t get why laptop panels do not make them this good, if they can.

    They don't make the displays, panel makers do. And those guys only make what they are asked to on a supply and demand basis. Basically is up to the laptop manufacturers to decide how much they are willing to spend on panels. Unfortunately 17" and 14" screens are at the low end of the totem pole, so the options are more limited, which affects the piece price.

    What probably happened is a 120hz qhd IPS screen probably costs $20-40 more and not enough laptop manufacturers we're on board to justify making the panel model to make it worthwhile for both parties. Maybe next year.

    Well I know that Dell doesn’t make the panel, but the funny thing is.. There both the cheapest 165Hz 1440P monitors in the whole industry.

    The 24” G-Sync 1440P model is 165Hz and $379 in store at Best Buy. While the 27” was $449 in store but only 144Hz

    Cheaper than all the competition, even at higher Newegg pricing. But a much better panel lol.

    Here are a few pics I took. Zero if any light bleed at all with 100% brightness on. It’s so pretty! LOL

    Well for every Aorus x7 sold, Dell probably sells 100 monitors. Totally different markets.

    Well yeah, But all the other TN 1440P G-Sync panels during that period were nearly twice as expensive as the dells to, and worse.

    It's likely a whole lot more than that. Dell not only supplies the general public but also enterprises, schools, hospitals, etc, whereas aorus is extremely niche product line. But your point is on point.
