    I want to buy from somewhere that has a 30 day return policy in-case I do not like it, or temps get too high and cause hitching (which is what happened in my last laptop before I fixed it). Place I bought it at before, CyberPowerPC would not take it for refund because I didn't want it due to higher than expected temps. SO before I drop another grand, does anyone know if I get a 30 day window for returns with HID?

    Feel free any of you to help answer my question. Wish I could afford an RTX 2070 model, but my max budget is around $1350-1400, so I will be getting an RTX 2060, 17.3" variant. I am hoping to max out at around 85 celsius on CPU and GPU after a 10 hour loop of Witcher 3... (yes I do game 10 hours straight sometimes)... or maybe HID could test this scenario for me before they ship it out to me?

    this is the model I intend to buy, with no storage and no OS, as I already own those items.

    thank you, I confirmed it. just have to be willing to accept 10% restocking fee and lose on return shipping as well.

    fair enough. I don't foresee anything going wrong within 30 days though so here we go!!! ^^

    Is it worth the extra $135 to upgrade from i7-8750h to i7-9750h if all I do is game? Gaming auto downclocks it right anyway? prob won't be able to boost the clocks cause of temp limits.

    reason I ask is because only another $200 from there gets me a 2070 max-q... but i read the 2060 oc's and beats max q 2070...

    ugh I don't know what to do... why does max-q exist, ffs nvidia. honestly if it wasn't max-q i'd stretch my budget to 1500 and just get the 2070 model. but screw that if a 2060 beats it.

    I've been dealing with Donald going back and forth between options. The vibe I get is that he wants me to get the system that's right for me and doesn't pressure me into buying right away. The great thing is I'm local so if anything were to happen I can just drop it off. Would recommend just calling and asking them personally.

    What happened to your desktop? Rtx 2060m is more than enough along with 8750h.

    I sold it all last week. I lived for 6 weeks with my gf in Europe, now I am home in America. We have decided to get married though, and her place isn't big enough for a desktop. So I am trying to do a proper gaming laptop. I just wish the new Ryzen chips were in laptops already. Ryzen 7nm 8 core 16 thread downclocked for temp reasons - and rtx 2070 non-max-q variant... i'd be set for ages!!! dangit!!!

    i feel like a 2060 will struggle for a lot of 1080p games, but i really do want to push above 100 fps for less motion blur.


    maybe I will just enjoy Indie games for right now, be patient, and see what is on offer a year from now... I'd like to drop 1800 instead of 1300 and just get a balls to the wall laptop that will last me 7+ years (assuming I am willing to turn down settings for newer games as the years go by) and I just feel like a 2060 doesn't cut the mustard... same as a max-q 2070... so yes I might just be patient.

    So you're going to Europe? i'd advise to get global warranty or atleast stick to brands with faster servicing say NBD parts/replacement.

    I have been going back and forth no issue for last 3 years my gtx 1070 laptop which I will be trying to sell soon. That 17.3" 144hz screen but in 15.6" form factor will fix almost all my issues ^^

    I will get a global warranty though, that is a good idea!


    fyi, sold my 1080 ti rig last week. but I also have a intel hd graphics 8th gen laptop i got used for $200. and honestly indie games run great on it... so i might just be content with this for awhile :D
