    That was disheartening to hear :(
    Also saw your G15 videos and bummer times two
    What could have been unrivaled winners just end up being good laptops. And I'm sure there will be plenty of other good laptops coming out.
    But where is that "amazing buy"? Great specs, low noise, good screen, and decent price.

    I guess I'll be waiting a bit more. sigh

    Just a suggestion for your channel: next time also consider posting amazon links to the UK. That's a potential +20% click increase.

    Yes... We've to wait. Most likely till the middle of May or end of May or even into June.

    Out of the laptop brands from Asia,
    Between MSI and Gigabyte, only MSI chosen and had already release Ryzen based gaming laptops for reviews. Those review units that had sent out are still to be finalize on production specs.
    Between Acer and Asus, only Asus had so far made pre-production models for sent off reviewing. Acer had yet to push out their Nitro or Predator systems for social reviewer assessments.
    From Mainland China, leaks of Lenovo Legion had been shared around. And today thru online chat with CSO, I was informed that the finalized new generation Legion with Ryzen CPUs are scheduled coming in Singapore @ roughly end of May or mid-June as production stabilize. However to date, there isn't any further infos on whether will there be ALL AMD(Ryzen+ATI Radeon) lappies in Lenovo's range of new products.

    Both Razer and AfterShock(Eluktroniks elsewhere?) do not hv plans on Ryzen based gaming laptops.

    Getting this TUF 506 /w 4800H + 1660ti + 90watt battery on Monday.. I'll post up a full review and thoughts, possibly a new owners thread for it if I think it's worthy of it.. Despite all the initial major disappointments about the LCD panel. It's $999 (with no tax) from Amazon at least for me (in Florida) being shipped directly from @XoticPC. Plan to liquid metal it after doing all my baselines, thoughts, undervolting, etc.. Before and afters and exploring opportunities to replace the default LCD panel with a better one. The goal is to attempt to make it the lowest cost "gaming" machine out there with the cheapest mods to make it even better. I figure one day you'll be able to score it for $799 possibly in 6 mo time as well. My initial recommendation is to WAIT.. $999 is still a lot for what you get IMO, but the biggest gain about the laptop is the low cost combined with the 4800H which just simply crushes the Intel mobile-8core offerings.

    Correctional update on AfterShock(Clevo/XMG) 15days later:-
    Ryzen system gaming laptop is now available in some countries in Asia-Pacific region.

    However do take note, the system board is BS450 that takes desktop CPUs and future proof to accomodate 4000 series CPU.

    Went for the TUF706 from xotic pc for $1099. I am hoping for better thermals in the larger chassis. Suitable for my database work and some light gaming. Can't beat the price vs. value ratio.
