    I will be buying new laptop and was wondering on your thougths for these. I don't play games, use laptop for work (need fast CPU and SSD.. will probably put 970 evo that I already have), want good build and overall quality. Had Asus N550JV for the past 7 years, never had any problems (except sometimes massive throthling :D.. but never serious problems) so I really lean towards asus.
    Will write my thoughts and +- for each model.

    1. Zephyrus S 15" GX502GV-AZ035T
    i7-9750h, 512gb SSD, 16gb ram, RTX 2060, 240hz

    + premium + build quality, good reviews (mostly for 2070 model though), good screen, probably big enter key
    - expensive in my area (~1900 euro),"only 12 threads) (I use program that can use 16), 15" screen

    2. Scar 17 G732LV-EV03
    i7-10875h, 16gb, SSD, RTX 2060, 144hz

    + cheaper then above one (~1700€), 17", cpu has 16 threads, faster memory
    - no many reviews, less premium?, more "gamery", screen?,

    3. Zephyrus S15 GX502

    Not even available in my country yet... Will probably be very expensive (and I would prefer version with i7-10875h). Heard new laptops for west balcan come with small enter key (?)

    I am not in a rush to buy but I kind of like the reviews of this first GX502 with i7-9750h so wouldn't like to "lose it".

    Thoughts?

    First thing to do with an N550JV to keep it from throttling is downgrade the BIOS to 206
    208 and 207 cause the throttling as soon as it starts to get warm, not hot but just warm.

    Just a suggestion to help get more life out of what you already have, hope it helps to let you have more time to decide what next.

    If you're not gaming, buy a business-class machine from Dell, Lenovo, or HP. You'll get better quality components and the option for a long extended warranties, most of which are available with on-site service.
