    I see it mentioned in a Lenovo thread, and that is it. Am I missing something?

    It's not bad, its pretty nice for those not wanting to bulk up to a GT63.

    I went for the GS65 instead (to replace my GT73) for more portability and a notch down from gaming/desktop replacement as I have a new desktop now. The chassis alone of the GE65 is the full size of a GS65 in terms of thickness but still bigger in overall size. The GE65 is more for portability/gaming without getting to bulky or heavy (5lbs). The new screens are pretty nice as well, even though we all don't need 240Hz its probably the same panel everyone else is using to pair up with the 9th gen CPUs.

    This is kinda my point though.

    No owners lounge.

    I see a few posts on other sites that are similar to yours. "good laptop, but I got x instead for y reason. "

    I only found 1 post by someone that owns it, and they complain of heat after a repaste but with no context of what they are doing or the environment they are doing it in, it means nothing.

    It is kinda hard to buy such a laptop.

    I was dead set on the GE65 until I found out that the GE75 was not much larger and had a full powered 2080 in it. The tiny bezel 17" laptops are not much larger than the standard 15" of recent years so many of us are already used to that size anyways. I feel like the smaller chassis will make it even harder to keep cool. Just my opinions of maybe why it's not very popular.
