    Ok thank you.

    How to disable the UEFI mode in the BIOS please? I prefer Legacy mode.
    I disabled just Secure Boot.

    Do any if yall here have a beast of a desktop setup as well? How do you justify owning this behemoth if you have a powerful desktop?

    I travel a lot due to my work and haven't owned a desktop since 12 years! I've been using a M17xR3 since 6 years and this system is a perfect excuse to upgrade to a new one. I was not interested in any BGA laptop up until this point and when this one showed up, I've decided to give it a try! I should have it within 2 weeks.

    I dont travel much and I have a pretty beastly desktop. I'm having second thoughts on returning this 2070 9700k 51M. It's just so damn sexy! And more powerful than my desktop.

    But I am not sure if it makes logical sense to keep it. I may need something with better portability and battery life for when I do travel.

    They are coming by to get it today. Not sure what to do lol.

    My fear is I'll end up using one and the other would be collecting dust. That kind of justification.

    I think desktop has GTX 1070 (Phenomenal card btw) and a i7 6700K processor with 16gb ram and 2TB storage.

    The 51M can get me 19k+ Firestrike scores. My desktop can only get me 15K
