    Well Eluktronics is a US based company and XMG is a Germany based company so... It kinda depends on where you live. I personally have an XMG Pro 15 (early 2018) and I haven't had any issues with it.
    So get the one which is closest to you so you can get support readily available and not wait months incase something breaks.
    Also repasting is never a bad idea if you're using something like liquid metal. But from initial thoughts from Dave2D, I don't think it'll be needed :p

    Does anyone know if the Thunderbolt 3 DP out is from the GPU or CPU? This looks like the perfect laptop for me, but it's a non-starter if I can't use a Valve Index with it.

    I looked at this newer Tongfang option versus the MECH-15G2Rx and ultimately elected to stick with the older system because of the dual mini-DP output it offered and the fact that the keyboard on the new one is missing the numeric keypad. Both of those features were more important to me than having TB3. My impression from Dave's video also suggested the keyboard backlighting was somewhat muted or softer on the newer model, and I prefer brighter backlighting. I prefer the muted black color and metal bottom panel of the newer model better, but I also prefer the more chiseled/angular look of the older chassis. The flat lid and blunt edges are a little bit lacking in character for my personal tastes. It seemed like Dave's impression was that the audio output quality was also inferior... perhaps due to the bottom cover hindering the audio output.

    I made my order today, with the RTX 2070 MQ and Conductonaut paste, etc. I'll try to post some impressions when it gets here.

    I wonder how it'll compare to the Clevo PB51 which is what I have. The Mag is a full cm thinner and has a larger battery but uses a MaxQ that can turbo like a MaxP.

    Very excited to get a bigger battery in my OP17. It has only 46whr which does not even do 3 hours as processor does not reach c7/c8 sleep states
    The dimensions look the same but I will wait for your confirmation before making the purchase
