    Hello guys, recently i have been searching for a new gaming laptop to replace my old G750JM . What i have been noticed that the performance of the new pascal graphics is significantly increase from my old 860m, so i want to upgrade my gaming laptop.But im stuck with i don't know whether to choose the 1060 or try to reach to the 1070. The 1060 appear in many laptops which have slim design and lightweight but i doubt that the 1060 can keep me going for the next 2- 3 years with all those heavy games. The 1070 while offer great performance over the 1060 but unfortunately i can't find the 1070 in any slim 17,3 inch laptops. So can you guys give me some advice ? Slim or Bulky ? 1060 or 1070? Any laptop models you guys want to suggest ? I really need your opinions and appreciate it
    T4R and sorry for my bad english

    The clevo p670rs with 1070 is only a little over 1 inch thick which is relatively thin. If you don't care about thickness you can go for one of the msi GT laptops like MSI gt72vr or one of the big clevos with desktop CPUs. All of those should be within your budget. But if you want something relatively portable it's hard to beat the clevo p650/p670 series.
