    You can always set the Control Center profile to Entertainment or Quiet for less heat when you're traveling and using it on your lap ;-)

    So besides the plastic design and no TB3, are there any other hidden disadvantages to the PowerSpec versions?

    The Powerspecs have the metal design (metal A and C surfaces).

    Thanks, do you know if that applies to the 17” 1720 as well?

    No TB3, no fingerprint reader, and single 16GB RAM stick. I believe the touchpad surface may be plastic instead of glass, I'm not sure.

    On the plus side, they come standard with a 500 GB NVMe SSD and Win10 Professional. And cost less.

    The color is different than the regular version, with an orange highlight. I like it, but YMMV. If a clean look is important, then the logo on the lid looks like it can be removed easily.

    I would call the accent color more of a copper than an orange .The PowerSpecs specifically use an WD Black SSD and also have the RGB keyboard with per-key control .

    Lid designs can change so just make sure it has no holes for said logo in it ;)

    I was just running Witcher 3 on max settings for an hour. Its one of the only programs that pretty consistently runs the GPU at 97-100% and causes the CPU to pull 50W.
