    I haven't had a ton of time to really dig into it and put it through some tests yet. I've basiclly been re-downloading programs and transfering stuff from my old laptop to this one. I can say, it downloads and transfers stuff well....:)

    As for all the complaints i've read about heat on this model, I haven't noticed much yet. I did get the IC Diamond thermal compound, and i've undervolted the CPU using ThrottleStop, so that may have made a difference.

    The only test i've run is the Far Cry 5 built in test, and I got around 70 FPS for high and around 60 FPS for ultra, with a min of 56 on high, and 48 on ultra. The fans did spin up during the test, but compared to my 5 year old Sager, they were not loud.

    The screen is nice. Bright and crisp. Good colors
    The build is good. Not much bend or flex for a plastic build. The cover opens one handed which is nice. My old laptop was a two hander.
    Compared to my old Sager, 5.5 pounds is nice and light, so no complaints there.
    The keyboard is just your normal laptop keyboard. i'm not too picky so i have no complaints.

    I did open it up and installed a 2.5" drive for storage. Other than taking out 12 screws, very easy to open and swap out components. Will be upgrading the ram in the near future.

    The only con i can think of right now is the placement of the GPU fan exit port. It's on the right side of the laptop, and for a right handed person using a mouse, that may present a cooked hand issue under extended load. I tend to keep my mouse towards the bottom of the laptop so it may not be a problem.

    Like i said though, i've not had much time to put it through any paces. When i do, will be happy to update this post.

    I much enjoy your cooked hand reference. Yeah, that would be a bit annoying if you play for extended periods of time

    The ideal position for the laptop is with th back raised a few cm which will help with warm hands too.

    So I played about a half an hour of Far Cry 5 last night on High. Again, i can only compare it to my old laptop, but the volume of the fans is not bad, even at full speed. I was always afraid my old laptop was going to lift off the fans were so loud....

    As for heat, i checked right after finishing and the CPU maxed at 86C and the GPU maxed at 68C. The top left quadrant of the laptop, which is where the CPU is located, got warm/hot to the touch. The WSAD keys stayed comfortable though. The top right quadrant got warm at most.

    As for gameplay, i had no problems. No stuttering, no tearing. Obviously needs more time, but so far i'm satisfied with it's performance.

    My only concern so far is the heat. I'll have to play with the temps overlayed to see if that 86C max was consistant or if it was just right before the fans sped up.

    I may play more with undervolting, see if i can find the point where it starts to become unstable and stay right above that.

    That's pretty normal for the 8750H.

    Do you think a future bios update will help? I'm thinking about getting a cooling pad as well.

    Not really, the CPU gets as hot as it gets, reduced power would mean reduced performance.
