    i did ask DELL if the thermal issues still exist, and they said they've been resolved/fixed, so they should no longer be present, should i get the AW 17 R4(i7 7820HK GTX 1080)?

    I would be very careful with size, 15 vs 17, there is a big jump in size and weight.

    Is there a big price difference between the Alienware and the other laptops that you're considering?

    After some interaction with some Razer owners, including a previous classmate of mine, I would't suggest a Razer unless portability or having thin and light aesthetics is your main criteria.

    On paper, The Razer Blade Pro FHD seems like a really good deal, and even I was considering this for me as a college laptop. But Razer laptops in general have a lot of problems

    1. Bad Customer Service- Razer is notorious for its bad service, and if you have any doubt I would like you to head over to a razer laptop owners thread.

    2. Overpriced Products- Look, Before i say this, I've got to hand it to razer for being able to fit so much into a laptop without making much compromises in performance, looks, aesthetics, storage, portability, screen size, dimensions, battery life, and thickness. And, to actually make a product like this, it takes ALOT of R&D and money to pull it off. But, most people don't really appreciate what Razer does to actually make a product like this. Only a few people would actually value an extra 4 or 5 millimeter thinner laptop.

    3. Overheating and Loud Fan noise- This has got to be the only compromise on this laptop and the thinner and more compact design only make things worse. Though on idle or light to moderate tasks it seems normal, but on heavier loads these laptop heat up alot and the fans sounds like a high pitched lawn mower. If u have any doubt you can look up a few videos on its fan noise.

    4. Performance- Now i know i just said that the Razer blade and Blade pro dont make much compromise when it comes to performance, but the gtx 1060 and i7 7700 on the razer blade somehow underperform as compared to other laptop gtx 1060' s or i7 7700's. Though it doesnt really change real life performance. Razer probably does it to reduce heating and increase overall efficiency.

    5. Short Life of Laptop- Due to their compact and fragile design, Razer laptops arent the best for some rough and tough handling, and the overheating helps the laptop in breaking down earlier. Im talking about blown motherboards and other stuff.

    Since you wouldnt be taking it to places on a regular basis, then you wont actually take advantage of the blade pros abilities.

    Since your budget is 2500 pounds or around 3300 dollars, you will have plenty of options to choose from and can easily get a good laptop with a gtx 1070 and 16 gb of ram, and maybe even one with a gtx 1080.

    But looking at the games you would be playing, i think a gtx 1060 laptop would handle all these games easily at ultra settings at 1920 x 1080 resolution with at least a minimum of 60-70+ fps at any given time. Though you would need eagle eyes or at least a 21 inch screen to actually see the difference and when you change the graphics to high, you will get 80+ fps on any optimized game.

    So buying a laptop with a gtx 1070 or 1080 for playing gta V is just an overkill.

    Now Since you want a laptop between 15 or 17 inches I would suggest 2 laptops

    15 inch- Dell Inspiron 7577

    17inch- MSI gt75vr titan pro


    There is another laptop i would personally suggest, its the Asus ROG 702ZC. It has an amd ryzen 7 1700 8 core cpu and a rx 580 graphics card all under 1500 dollars or 1150 pounds. It hasnt come out yet but will be available soon before the end o the year. You should take a look at it at least once.

    Heres a link to a thread that i started. I think it can help you.

    it's not just GTA V, it will be other ones as well, i don't really like the MSI GT75VR, it just as MSI GT73VR Titan Pro 2.0, it's like any laptop brand, some people have a good experiece with the custom service, some have bad it just depends, i spoke to a tech expert on youtube and he said the razer blade pro will still perform as any other i7 7700HQ gtx 1060 laptop, its the i7 7820HK GTX 1080 that causing the heat issues, among other problems, yeah the Razer Blade Pro 4K UD GTX 1080 will overheat, but the Full HD most likely won't as it doesnt require a lot of power

    i'm not buying the GTX 1080 one, it's the GTX 1060 one. this one - it's the one on the left(Full HD model with an i7 7700HQ, slotted ram unlike the GTX 1080 one, and that one has a SSD and an HDD, should i get the i7 7700HQ and GTX 1060?

    i7 7700HQ and GTX 1060 don't underperform on thin laptops, MSI GS73VR doesn't and that is a thin laptop as well :)

    I was not a huge fan of the Lenovo I had, it overheated quite a bit and the support was lacking. I would go with the MSI.
