    Hi guys, just wondering which would be a good recommendation for gaming and running ML algorithms and possibly photo editing on the side?
    The Trition is configured as 32gb, i7 9750h, 512gb SSD and RTX 2080 max-Q
    The Metabox / Clevo is configured as 16gb, i7 9700k, 512gb SSD and the full RTX 2080.
    I am not worried about the weight difference just from experience which one would be better in the long run.
    I read online about how the PSU for theTrition is not sufficient enough to power the GPU and how it performs below other 2080 laptops. Any other recommendations would be welcome. Than

    The only advantage I see in the Triton is it's like 4lb lighter. Everything else is in the Clevo's favor.

    The full power 2080 is going to go a fair bit further.

    As above, the 2080 Max-Q variant is quite a bit weaker. Up to you if you'd prefer the portability or performance and "upgradability". Would likely be easier to fix the Clevo should the CPU or GPU become faulty outside of warranty. But realistically, by the time that happens, it could potentially be more cost effective to just buy a new laptop

    Thanks guys for your response. I’ve decided to buy the Clevo. I’m am now deciding which variant to buy. I just checked out my friends one with 17”(p775) 4K gsync with 9700k. Thinking of getting something similar or should I go for the 15” 144hz 9700k. Is there any difference in the weight. I held the 17” and it wasn’t super heavy like I thought.

    See our specs there is a weight and slight cooling difference between 15 and 17 inches.

    Display is preference, I like fast refresh rates for instance.

    The gaming side will benefit more from the higher refresh, while 4k tends to be more desirable for photo editing. If it were me I think I'd go for high refresh on the main display for gaming, and then plug into a higher res (and much larger) external for editing. But that's because my photo editing is occasional pic touchup while I spend most of the time on my computer gaming.

    The lower resolution screen is a bit less power hungry too especially if you lower the refresh rate. Not too important with a machine like this usually but worth noting.

    Most of the games I have are AAA titles, and I was thinking of doing the reverse because I have a 1080 144hz monitor already. Is the 4K worth it ? Never owned one before.

    That's down to your perception and which is more pleasing to your brain/eye.
