    Man things have changed... Acer used to be the worst in QC. Enough that I wouldn't use an Acer again after my throttling 3830TG

    Would stay away from Razer then, Overseas support is non existent.

    Considering the why you want; I would seriously consider the HIDevolution's EVOC 16L-G-1080. It is the lightest GTX 1080 laptop available (6.6 LBS but a little thicker 1.55" but that much thickness doesn't really matter, is 1/2" going to make portability much more difficult?).

    HIDevolution offers worldwide support. The machine isn't flashy, so less likely to be stolen (but the poor pictures on the website don't due it justice at all, it really doesn't look bulbous or cheap) and it has MXM GPU and Desktop socketed CPU, so it is most powerful non SLI laptop on market. Also if something goes wrong, socketed components can be replaced, or down the road, upgraded.

    They *definitely* did you a *huge* favor.

    Is this laptop also the loudest when under stress?

    I've used desktop replacements before, but this one blares like a rocket.

    That's louder than any Clevo I've used with desktop CPU's and SLI GPU's inside.

    The noise levels on the RBP I did not find too bad, yes they are loud but not annoying.

    However the heat on the keyboard W,A,S,D keys that most games I have my fingers set on at all times, those after 30min-45min become uncomfortable.

    This is my 5th and final RBP and so far this one has the best temps, it handles UV at -130 solid and temps at 3.9 never go over 88 CPU, GPU never goes over 85.

    I just beat Prey on it today and it was too the point I was like damn I can't take this heat on my fingers any longer.

    I will try the new Asus and Acer and maybe end up keeping one of those? The screen though on the rbp will be missed.

    better you use static set voltage instead of undervolt

    edit: this won't help the finger heating issue

    Don't consider Aorus/Gigabyte for anything other than a garbage can.

    I would personally recommend Alienware. They're a bit heavier and thicker but the build quality is great and they perform/cool well. I don't know your future plans would have room for Alienware's Graphics Amplifier (similar to the Core) but I would definitely recommend it.

    A month ago, I bought an Alienware 15R3 (7700HQ, GTX 1060), the Alienware Graphics Amplifier, and a GTX 1080 Ti all for just under $2000 after my local MicroCenter's sales and rebates. I haven't looked back once.

    So, I'm wondering whether to consider on of the new Max-Q architecture bad boys. Zephyrus, Triton 700 or the Aorus

    Linus Tech Tips - Liked the Aorus

    Just for giggles, apparently Razer didn't like my negative review on Yelp and had them take it down. They must be in serious trouble if they have nothing else to do.

    If you wan't the NBR community's opinion on Max-Quid there is a thread:

    TL;DR: They hate it
