    Go for it but I need something that is less than 0.8" thick, less than 5 lbs and I prefer having ports on the back (mag 15, Alienware m15, Lenovo y740 as examples).

    Yea I'm selling mine around $850 - $900 and it has a 1070 Max q lol our laptops won't be worth much soon. Everyone likes the new design despite the soldered ram and everything. I don't know why you'd want the mag15 over the m15 r1 tbh, it's an amazing machine. Only reason I'm even changing is cause I want the tensor cores and I might just buy another m15

    New design is ugly and so many steps back.. only keyboard is better on the r2.

    I'm trying to sell mine for 1600 Euro, which is 30% cheaper than new prices here. Yet people think I'm a charity and going to sell it at 60% cheaper lol.

    Alienware is great, but the keyboard and footprint of mag 15 is just so much better. Also 20% bigger battery, because mine had 7% wear level out of box...

    You can always buy a new battery for it, what frames do you get on your 2060 vs the games presented by Bob of all trades and ownordisown? You might have better performance with the m15 without the thermal throttle and you do at least keep a numpad on the m15.

    Im on the same boat in terms of thinking whether to upgrade to this or getting a refurbished or used m15 r1 with 2080 Max q tbh as I agree the footprint on this is smaller and the keyboard looks like it would be an upgrade BUT consider if you aren't going to get any better performance than you are now, it might not be worth it for you as most laptops with 2060 aren't Max q and can be overclocked really close to 2070 max q levels (assuming performance is even a concern for you). If you just care about portability then yes go for it.

    I hope they decide to create a mag 17 with a 2080 Max q with electroboost. With a larger chassis I imagine they would be able to cool it better but I hope they go for a 17" QHD panel @120 hz rather than those fast 1080p screens. The 17" version could accommodate better speakers and a numpad too. I'm sure they can get the weight at around 4.5 lbs to if this 15" chassis is anything to go on.

    Yeah a 17 inch might be nice for some. But I think it would be really sad not to first be implementing those missing features in the existing chassis. Before advancing anything else like that. They were mux switch and usb-c incoming charging. Which does not require anything outside of tweaks / changes to the existing mainboard design - all on the PCB. No new tooling etc. required for those.

    I don't think they are going to implement either of those features in the current 15" chassis. I did find it funny how XMG said somewhere that it cannot deny or confirm that there is a 17" chassis along the way and every time I see a company post that something comes out in a couple of months or so lol

    Might be a little off topic.
    Is the Mag - 15 a good option for a newcomer to the ML/ Deep learning world?
    Planning to pick the RTX 2070 model for the same reason or is there any other laptop option?
    Not looking for a desktop.
