    I have my eyes on a desktop build finally to replace my ailing P150EM (dead dGPU). Looking at an i5-9600K and a 1660 Ti in a small form factor build. However, I still have a place in my heart for a laptop and am curious about the Sager models of the Clevo NH58RCQ and RDQ. I watched the Jarred'sTech Metabox variant review of the RCQ and it looks quite promising honestly.

    I'm looking at roughly $1400-1500 for the desktop build atm since I need a 2nd monitor. But the laptop is looking like about $1350-1450 depending on model I go with.

    What are people's thoughts on these systems that own them? Is $100 cost increase worth it for a 2060 over a 1660 Ti and 144Hz over 60Hz display? Looking at notebookcheck, seems like the two GPUs are very similar in performance and neither are going to be hitting 144Hz at high/ultra settings at 1080p in most games.

    How important is mobility to you?

    That's a tough question I guess. I like the ability to be able to pick up and move my computer knowing I can play somewhere else when available, such as I've not been at my desk since my GPU died. And there was one month roughly 2 years ago I spent a good amount of time at the library with my laptop. But roughly 95-99% of the time, my laptop is docked to my desk. I could soon see the use of a laptop as beneficial in the coming month or two for personal reasons... but at the same time if I don't have a laptop for those circumstances it wouldn't be the end of the world for that. So... it's kind of a toss up. If I have a laptop, I will make use of it being a laptop occasionally. If I don't have a laptop, I'll make due still.

    A desktop will be cheaper to upgrade and easier to maintain is the main thing. Otherwise the RTX 2060 mobile is a very good chip.

    If you're looking at the 2060 mobile GPU, I'd suggest the Eluktronics Mech 15 G2Rx or Mech 17 G1Rx, as these have a feature called Eluktroboost, which increases the TDP on the 2060 to 115W from the standard 80W. The 80W 2060 is quite gimped compared to the desktop version, offering only about 75% of the performance, while the 115W 2060 can pretty much match the desktop version with a little voltage/frequency curve tuning.

    Only get this model if it's priced very well.

    Which country are you from?

    Those have their compromises too.
