    Those are waste of money. No offense. Every single one of them. 90% of what they provide is marketing and software fluff.

    Yeah, and I'd love to pay 100+$ every year because MSi skimped on power delivery with their NOS system.

    Come back when you're more sober, or off the effect of whatever drug you're on right now.

    i actually went ahead and got a sager and returned the MSI

    the hybrid feature is pretty dumb tbh. if i have to replace the battery every 1-2 years that's at least 2 weeks of downtime and additional costs [battery, labor]. if i can only run high peformance games for 3-4 hours before it dips to 30% battery, that's not going to work out. i travel and sometimes i dont have the ability to regulate temperature to keep the battery happy [such as in UK, i don't have AC in half the places i go to, and in the summer that's not fun at all].

    even with battery cable unplug from mobo, the laptop will throttle?

    what is capacity of brick? 240w or 330w? 240w probably won't be enough to do supply the 45w cpu and 140-180w gpu.

    At the current exchange rate, you can get the thinner 980 laptop at 1400 ex vat or just 1820 USD
