    ASUS Zephyrus GM501

    Don’t like the lifting up design. It feels so fragile. Only 2 fans. I thought these laptop manufacturers will upgrade the fan for the higher cpu / gpu spec.

    MSI GS65

    Like the design, quite cool cooler. 3 fans, better?

    Gigabyte Aero
    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Gigab...070-Max-Q-Full-HD-Laptop-Review.296594.0.html
    2 fans still. A bit over 2 kg, lighter than asus zephyrus (2.5kg), but heavier than gs65 (1.85kg)

    I can only find these 3 reviews in notebookcgeck. Are there other thin& light cfl gaming laptop available in the market now?

    @Phoenix I think CFL stands for the CoFfee Lake processor but I could be wrong.

    Old LCD laptop screens used to use fluorescent CFL backlighting but I wouldn't think he means that x)

    Add these to the list of slim and light CFL (Coffee Lake) laptops with at least a gtx 1060:

    • Clevo p950er or p950ep6
    No reviews for the CFL version, but you have for the KBL version:

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Euroc...HQ-GTX-1070-Max-Q-Laptop-Review.244590.0.html

    Currently, it doesn't have a dedicated owner's lounge for the CFL models.

    The main thread+review for the KBL model:

    • Razer blade 15" 2018

    There are other models that are slightly heavier and thicker than those mentioned above (but at over 2.5kg and >20mm, these should be considered as part of another category) for eg:

    Thanks for the info.
    I will look for more razor info. But it’s over 2 kg still....
    I’ll pass aorus. 2.5kg is not in my conservation range...
