    Ok so have been looking around a bit and I think I will lean towards a 2060rtx as it is a tiny upgrade but won't have me spedig crazy amounts. I am tempted with these so far:

    MSI GS75: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/msi-...n-bezel-i7-8750h-gaming-laptop-lt-29q-ms.html

    or

    HP Ome 17 which seems to come for more bang for your buck: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/hp-o...z-intel-i7-9750h-gaming-laptop-lt-04a-hp.html

    Alternatively this 2070rtx does soud good: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/msi-...3-144hz-i7-9750h-gaming-laptop-lt-29j-ms.html

    Also there is no Max-Q option for the 2060 right?

    Edit: does ayoe know why the HP omen is so much cheaper than other laptops in its range? Is that due to companies like MSI ad Razor where you just pay for the name?

    The omen seems to have less side features than the MSI, though yea you still pay a bit more for the name as well.

    Also depending where you live there might be a higher tariff on products from MSI than like HP or the like.

    I owned a ge laptop.

    best keyboard I ever used and loud speakers, one problem was the cpu temps, i would check out a review to see if the new msi laptops overheat. if i recall correctly they don't.

    Pros: like 4 areas for storage upgrade
    killer speakers
    msi keyboard with per key rgb backlighting
    full 2070
    6 core cpu that doesn't throttle
    good srgb coverage on the high refreshrate display
    cons:
    rubbish trackpad
    rubbish webcam

    I have a GT series and my brother has a GE series. Both have been solid so far.

    If the reviews reflect it I would go for that one.

    You will get a bit of a perf bump

    Be careful with MSI stuff, especially the display hinge. The sockets that holds the hinge screws are metal but they are surrounded by cheap plastic which may crack in less than a year. At least this is what happened to some MSI owners before, I don't know if MSI did any improvements or not. You can Google the "MSI broken hinges" and see the affected models.

    Hmm that's quite worrying as this is the reason I have to replace my current laptop. I am also considering the Asus Roc 2 or 3. What do you guys think of that?

    I wouldn't worry as some users have reported that playing football with their laptops decreases lifespan...don't worry all laptops can break down and do, msi tests all their machines for repeated use.
