    I think they say that to a lot of people and then not do anything.

    I also think the real problem is that will Lenovo upcharge to get the 500 nit screen and what resolution will that screen be.

    I'm somewhat not convinced, the cpu looks like a 6c right now and the gpu's end up the same. Then it comes down to the screen which if it's not 1440p kinda hard to wait for unless it comes standard and even then is that gonna be 60hz or 144hz/122hz?

    after that would be keyboard/build quality/battery which would be pluses but not still not really enough.

    Is the GTX 1660ti performance equal or worse compared to the RTX 2060?

    Well right now the 1660ti performs almost at 1070 levels according to benchmark with the 2060 doing similar if not reaching between 1070-1080 performance levels.

    In short a little slower to being nearly as fast just without The RT cores.

    I don`t see how it can be cooler or as cool as the 8750H since they are based on the exact same technology (14nm+++). Also how it can be 28% faster than 8750H unless 8750H is severely thermal or TDP-throttled is also a mystery. The 8950HK has better specs than the 9750H but even with overclocking it is not close to 28% faster than the 8750H https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i9-8950HK-vs-Intel-Core-i7-8750H/m486215vsm470418 (16% in singlecore when overclocked). For comparison: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-8750H-vs-Intel-Core-i7-8700K/m470418vs3937 The i7 8700K 95W desktop is on average 29% faster than the 8750H, it is impossible for a mobile chip that uses less than half the power and is based on the exact same technology to be as fast. Unless the i7 9750H suddenly is based on 10nm I cannot see that this level of performance is realistic.

    There is one way that the 9750H can outperform the 8750H: If Intel support higher RAM-speeds by default on their 9-series chipsets. There are cl16 3200-kits available for SO-DIMM available. If you pair a 9750H with at 3200cl16-kit and run it against a 8750H with a 2400cl17 or 2666cl19-kit there will be a quite large performance-difference in certain apps and games, but this will mostly be due to the RAM-speed and timings, not the CPU.

    Agreed. This also jives more with what we've seen previously about the leaks; a Passmark score of 14,118 with the i7-9750H vs the 12,484 for the i7-8750H makes it about 13% more powerful. That is a direct translation of the IOPS difference we saw from leaked details.
    This is definitely a good boost with a turbo clocked at 4.5GHz and base being 2.6GHz, but it will certainly be throttled due to thermals as with Intel's current offerings until we see a smaller chip.

    So the bit with this is the increase is measured using 3200 Ram modules or something .

    Anyone own the previous gen of Legion, just wondering what the longevity of these laptops are. A bit disappointed by the standard 1 year warranty, doesn't exactly shout confidence in their product.

    Just about all the laptop makers have one year warranty.

    Y730 Legion was a bit underpowered which they changed with this generation.
