    *Updated to include which RTX GPU's are available per laptop

    Hey everyone! With the new RTX laptops going on sale next week, I put together a list comparing the various laptops that are thin and light, and have a RTX 2080 Max-Q. At the end, I'll let you know what I decided on and why.
    https://www.theeverydayenthusiast.com/home/2019-thin-and-light-rtx-gaming-laptops

    I'll be purchasing one of the laptops next week and will be comparing it to my current 2018 GS65 w/GTX 1070 Max-Q.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks for the read. It made me look more at the GS75 and I think it's the one I'll get

    NP, glad I could help. That's actually the one I'd go for if I wasn't a stickler about having a numpad lol.

    I'm not a huge fan of num pads either, but a 17" in a chassis smaller than my current 15" ... that's awesome

    This was great. Really useful to have them laid out side by side in the table.

    Until we see the reviews, only the GS65 and the GS75 are worth taking into consideration. Everything else, traditionally, has trouble cooling their processor, RTX or no RTX. Maybe the Aero has been improved.
