    Right now i'm on a PC (i5 3570k!) but as i'm travelling/moving abroad to the states then i'm in the market for a good laptop and as i'll have alot of downtime... i wanted to do some gaming, probably not in 4k as i'm not killing my budget on that (id need a damn good monitor im sure) i've always liked the look of Alienware but i hear so many problems about them, not even sure if the Aorus are any good either...

    I was asking about false advertising and all those crap which BGA can never reach without proper cooling.

    No CPU can reach speeds BGA, LGA, FPGA if the cooling is insufficient. Notebookcheck.net reviewed a Clevo a few weeks back that also couldnt hold its boost under load.

    I guess AMD needs to step up in the laptop market and offer true alternatives.

    Oh, ok. That makes more sense now. No, it does not terrify me. It does not affect me personally, as I do not allow for accommodation of garbage. Although, I do find that the mere knowledge of these issues is truly disgusting.
