    I've heard that this clevo has a bunch of heating issues, can anyone confirm if that's true? If it is, would it be enough to get it repasted with IC diamond or should this clevo be avoided entirely?

    other than the heating does anyone have any experience or knowledge of this laptop? thinking hard about buying my first clevo and don't want to regret it it.

    I mean performancewise it's a good bang for the buck. GPU will likely be fine, CPU is steamy, software is trash, speakers is trash, keyboard is meh, panel is rather good.

    I don't know how a repaste will decrease the temps, on stock I know that thing is REALLY hot tho.

    cheers, do you know of any other similar laptops with high refresh rate panels and a good enough GPU/CPU to actually utilize the monitor?

    He says this about all non-MSI branded machines to be fair. He uses "likely" as he has not handled or tested it.

    What part of his statement is false ?
    The cooling sucks
    No info on keyboard
    Speakers meh
    Sager software isnt known to be that good

    He's an MSI supporter that's for sure. But those are legit criticisms of the model

    I'm not really, I'm supporting quality notebooks. MSI simply happens to be the best overall notebook producer, even tho Asus and Acer seem to up their game, I'll have to do some research on their new models. There was an Asus that looked a lot like the GS65 for instance, which was more builky, if they played their cards right, that system might be cool like a cucumber and I would recommend it.

    Asus zephryus M ?

    That thing cools like a pro

    As for sager/MSI , I can get the p955er for 1600$ with 1 TB m2 SSD(without HDD) , while it would cost me 2200$ for 256GB GS65 .........
    The sager has :
    Similar/superior cooling
    Same specs
    Similar weight and thicknesses
    Superior storage
    600$ cheaper

    Gigabyte aero 15x is simply superior to the GS65

    The razer 2018 is also the best thin laptop with its vapour chamber cooling (the most expensive)

    He just doesn't seem to take price under consideration.

    No, the new GL504, there is a thread in the Asus forum.

    Also:
    Clevo has inferior screen, keyboard, slightly worse cooling, inferior software, inferior GPU, speakers literally worse than 300USD notebooks (I'm not joking)

    Hence 600USD cheaper.

    Its just as thick as the GE63 while being heavier.

    At least it has a real GTX 1070 , not those 80W max q clown editions
