    "...optional Optimus support..."? What do you mean...do you want MSHybrid, or no MSHybrid? (Optimus is no more...been replaced with MSHybrid)

    What GPU to do you want?

    Do you want soldered Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ BGA CPU, or empty LGA CPU socket? (If empty LGA CPU socket, then MSHybrid is not available).

    BGA + MSHybrid would be which barebone?

    That means, that if the CPU is socketed, MSHybrid is not available at all? You need a BGA CPU for that?

    17.3" QHD (2560x1440) IPS 120Hz + BGA + MSHybrid barebones = Does not exist.

    Correct, a socketed LGA desktop CPU based laptop will not have MSHybrid. MSHybrid is designed to provide better battery life for a laptop when the discrete GPU is not required, and there is no need for battery life enhancement in a desktop computer, so it won't be there in an LGA socketed desktop CPU based laptop.

    Above you said, that a soldered BGA CPU can have MSHybrid. (?)
    It's not mandatory, the display itself is the most important one.

    Yes, the soldered BGA CPU can have MSHybrid, the socketed LGA CPU cannot.

    Do you want IPS 120Hz-25ms (does not exist in a barebones), or TN 120Hz~5ms? Keep in mind, the new TN screens are not at all like the old ones. Color vibrancy, viewing angles, and even color accuracy are MUCH better. If you are looking for gaming speed, you will find the response time of 5ms on the new TN screens is sweet, and they run buttery smooooth.

    Why barebones? With the BGA laptop, both the CPU and GPU are soldered, so the only 'barebones' part is the RAM, SSD and/or HDD.

    Also, you haven't answered "What GPU to do you want?"

    Gaming speed is not as important for my MMORPG and strategy games. I don't play shooters or other fast paced games. But i'm curious now. Do you have a tech sheet/data for a current TN panel and an IPS panel for comparison?
    As for the GPU a GTX1060 or 1070 should be fine also for QHD.
    In general i don't have issues, that CPU and GPU cannot be upgraded. My main laptop is already upgradeable (Dell Precision 7720). For this one it is not important.

    In order to really help you, I need all of my questions answered.

    "Why barebones? With the BGA laptop, both the CPU and GPU are soldered, so the only 'barebones' part is the RAM, SSD and/or HDD."

    In this case BGA laptop is fine.

    For the rest i normally also pick parts that are powerful enough for a couple of years.

    Thanks for your patience. :)

    I should have asked this early on...I apologize. What price range do you want to stay within?
