    There's not point to the i9 or unlocked power limits if cooling is not up to snuff, it'll still throttle like the i7.

    As far as I see, rog G703 and msi GT75 can do a good job on i9. Not alienware, it is a garbage, paying extra for i9 for nothing but thermal throttling.

    1250 cb is great, seems like this machine has no problem handling the hothead 8750H. Still, 2K for GTX 1070 model is way too expensive considering MSI GP63 (GTX 1070) offers the same performance for 500$ less; and 1,7K for GTX 1060 even more ridiculous given there're many inexpensive (around 1K) contenders in this segment (HP Omen 15 or Lenovo Y530)

    Where are you seeing the 1070 GP63 for $1,500? At that price point, I can only find the 1060 model (Amazon, GentechPC, HID). I'd be very interested in anything with a 1070 and a comparable screen for cheaper than $1,800.

    Newegg has the 1060 for $1500, and I don't see the 1070 listed.

    I'm not sure what makes you think 2k is expensive for a 1070+8750h. From my research, that seems to be pretty average or even on the low end. Sure, you can get a Microcenter branded Clevo on in-store pickup if you're lucky enough to live close to one, but other than that, I don't see a whole lot of people beating this price.

    I saw the 1070 model few days ago listed for 1,5K. Probably all sold out.

    The Newegg exclusive MSI GP63 Leopard-428 was $1499 during July 4th sale, AND there was an additional $70 coupon available. Bringing the total down to $1429, which would be the final price if shipped outside of NJ (no tax). Plus 3% cashback from topcashback. For a i7 8750h, 8gbx2 dual channel config, 120hz panel, and a full 1070, not max-q!

    I almost pulled the trigger but decided not to for a few reasons - right side Windows Key, right side exhaust, TN panel, no g-sync, "thick" bezel, no TB3, not a fan of the red strip across the chassis, only 51Wh battery, and only 128gb drive, and it's SATA.

    Decided on the new HP Omen - was lucky enough to have access to the configurable model with 1070 (max-q though) and 144hz IPS display. It has thin side bezels, better design and build quality, 256gb Samsung 970 Evo, TB3, gsync, and 70Wh battery. With 15% cashback, it'll come out to around $1550 after all the July 4th discounts.
