    Whatever notebook you get make sure it has a decent heatsink and unlockable advanced bios menus so you can tune it..You don't want to be stuck constantly throttling when you just paid for the best hardware on the market.

    If a laptop is overheating or otherwise performing badly out of the box, it should be returned for refund immediately.

    I know what you mean but I feel like a undervolt and a couple more bios adjustments are necessary with gaming laptops... That's why I returned a HP omen for my GE66.

    Does putting a 95 watt 3080 in an Aurus laptop qualify for performing badly even though you got exactly what you paid for?

    IMO the advice is sound; There are a number of laptops a man can buy right now that do thermal throttle out of the box. It's a thing. Better to not buy in the first place than have to return later.

    Looks like that laptop uses a Tongfang chassis. They're solid enough. Browse through the threads in the "Other Manfuacturers" sub-forum for owner impressions and such.

    Yeah thanks I will have a look.

    I’ve never heard of Medion…. I think German.

    But that’s a full powered RTX 3070 right?

    that spec seems really quite good. Not seeing a downside.

    Don't know. And if you have something to add to a post you've already made, use the edit button instead of making multiple replies in a row.

    The 140 watts is the maximum power for a 3070 as of this date. The eluktronics Reddit is relatively active, XMG also; those might be worth perusing. There are variations with the various frames with theTongfang resellers so you need to pay attention to the differences.
