    I plan on playing 1 or two games once in a blue moon, but I would be doing 3D Game Dev in the future. I know I'll need around 16 - 32 GB of RAM

    I am not sure what will be system requirements for 3D Game Dev, I guess will depend upon application you will use. But I guess it will require a lot of CPU power anyways. I would still suggest to look for something which has deskop i7 (if your budget allows it) or Ryzen CPU (if you can wait) or Coffee Lake (if you can wait even longer) inside

    I don't know if I'd wait for that 702ZC. The review from Notebookcheck shows it's thermals and fan noise are out of hand.

    My vote goes for PA71HP6-G then, 7820K option is also there if you are interested in overclocking. For only CPU load I guess it may handle overclock. I doubt it will able to handle GPU and overclocked 7820K under load together

    Same here. There are only two semi thin and light 1070 equipped notebooks I'd recommend at this point and they are the PA71 like you said and the MSI GE73vr. Both of these notebooks seem to handle thermals well.

    There are a few more semi thin and light 1060 equipped notebooks but when it comes to the 1070, very few notebooks on the thinner side are able to handle its thermals properly.

    It is operating at a class of thermals that used to be left to the beefier machines to handle.

    Those new slim fans really make wonders.

    Is it true Clevo laptops stop working faster than other brands?

    Also is there a reason that some resellers only have 5400 RPM HDD maximum?

    Not true to the first and to the second I guess they see people using the HDD for archival/mass storage and SSDs for the main storage. You'd have to ask them though.
