    I really don't know why we even bother having a which laptop thread when the answer is always "buy a Clevo". :rolleyes:

    Clevo and Msi offer very good options for DTRs

    I picked up the alienware 17 when it was on sale in the UK. I had the 7820hk/gtx 1080 model with the 1440p 120hz panel. My experience wasnt very good. My build had the sunon heatsink with the new thermal pad and paste and couldnt game at anything apart from stock where it was still hitting 96c. My friend picked up the same model and was running at 4.2ghz 89c so i think its a bit hit and miss whether you will get a good one. I had mine repaired by a dell engineer and it was repasted and it was still hitting high temps at stock.

    When did you buy your one? I asked DELL and they said the thermal/heat issues have been fixed, and an owner of the same AW 17 R4 on YouTube said his temps, no repasting was 72-80c is that normal?

    I think out of the laptop brands you listed, MSI is probably the way to go for you, although I would strongly consider Clevo. I would normally recommend Alienware, but it seems the R4 revisions are having some problems.

    i'm not buying the GTX 1080 model, it's the i7 7700HQ GTX 1060 one, would it be good to consider the GTX 1060 razer blade pro, it's identical to the GTX 1080, cheaper, but it doesn't have mechanical keyboard, RAM is upgradable and comes with a HDD and SSD, where as GTX 1080 one, RAM is non-upgradable and only supports SSDs, should i get the Razer Blade GTX 1060?
