    I concur. Just 5 years ago "full sized" laptops were significantly bulkier than what we have today. The slimmed bezels help to reduce the size of the laptop noticeably too.

    Its a real pity MSI doesn't cram a 90+ Whr battery into the GE75. Then it'll be perfect for those who need longer battery life for on the go productivity tasks and don't mind trading some portability for extra performance.

    Sadly at the moment, its either the GS series for long battery life or the GE series for performance.

    I agree I would sacrifice a smaller battery for more performance, otherwise you shouldn't be looking for a laptop like this if you want long lasting battery

    I still can’t compare benchmark results of GE75 and GS75. Maybe you did it?

    Still can’t decide which to buy because has no proofs of GS75 weakness. New GS65 RTX users from neighbor topic says about fantastic thermals and no throttling. Maybe MSI really improve GS cooling system and it's CPU/GPU can work on GE speed clocks?

    CPU yes. GPU no.

    The 2080 max-q is tdp limited to 80w while the normal 2080 is given 150+w. So unless you do a vBios and EC mod on the 2080 max-q it is highly unlikely that you will be able to reach normal 2080 clocks even if you have lots of thermal headroom.

    However, it MAY be possible to overclock the 2080 max-q to near stock 2080 levels.

    I am getting around 5 hours now while web browsing on 1/3 brightness, that is I think more than enough on a fully equipped gaming laptop with 17" screen.

    Don't know what the "+" stands for, my GE75 with RTX 2080 is limited to 150W.

    Yes, only some voltage and turbo tweaking was done on 8750h.
