Upgraded a little,

Gigabyte Z270P-D3 Motherboard
Intel i7 6700k OC'd to 4.5GHz
Hypertec DDR4 2133 RAM 16GB (2 x 8GB) OC'd to 2666
Gigabyte GAMING OC RTX 2070 Super graphics card
Alphacool Eisbaer 240 CPU AIO
Fractal Design Focus G Case
Fractal Design 2 x 140mm front intake fans, 1 x 120mm exhaust fan
128gb Kingston SSD
2tb seagate HDD
3tb seagate HDD
EVGA 750w G3 Gold PSU

Changed my motherboard to an Asus Z170 as it had a little more flexibility when overclocking but I still settled on 4.5ghz as that's the best with my current AIO setup. Now it's housed in a much nicer Fractal Define 7 Compact case with their Venturi 120mm AF fans in the front (x3) and the normal 120mm GP12 in the exhaust spot. It was a really nice case to build in, and is a great size.

Is this the most compact laptop with such high spec you found? I just looked at a Alienware 51M, it's so thick and bulky. I personally like the size and slim profile of Razor, but do they have high performers that are the slimmest profile? Anybody know what has the best size in terms of being slim and also perform really well? What seems to be the best in this catagory?

I really dislike the look of gaming laptops with the nasty color, and hate the rgb color trend.

I was looking for the best performance in the thin and light segment. My laptop which is the Eluktronics Mech 15 G3 is that since it performs around 15-20% better than every other laptop in this category(because of open design I discussed earlier in the thread) and has a mechanical keyboard too. There's literally no other laptop that will outperform this outside of heavy desktop replacements.

However, it's slightly thicker at 0.9" compared to Acer Triton and Razer Blade which are at 0.7". However, I'm good as long as the thickness is below 1". It's not that different imo. The mech keyboard needs the thickness for key travel.

I too dislike RGB and "GAMER" branding in laptops. This laptop has no branding whatsoever like literally, there's not even the logo of the company. It's completely black, no stickers too.

Eluktronics also sells the MAX 15 which is the lightest laptop in the thin and light category. It's still at 0.77"

Triton 500 and Razer Blade 15 Advanced are there if you want the absolute thinnest but can sacrifice performance/lightness.

I think the Razer Blade 15 is the option most people turn to for thin performance laptop. I've tried using a friend's for sometime and it's well built and performs surprisingly well considering its build. It's all personal preference but I'd agree with seamon that options that are a little bit thicker might be more desirable (even if its from just a price perspective).

Holy crap that thing is thin for a gaming laptop! I don't see why people go Apple with such level of performance you can get? Lots of Apple laptops are overpriced for what they are when it comes to internal hardware.

I can't wait until they start putting in OLED displays. LCDs are no match for OLED's vivid colors. LCDs look washed out in comparison and I just can't look at LCDs for games and movies anymore.

At home, I prefer to feed all media to my OLED TV.

Gigabyte is shipping some thin and light laptops with 4K OLED displays. Razer is too I think.

The problem with OLED screens on Windows is that they will burn in pretty fast.

True, and that's probably why they were slow to impliment for PC monitors as the OS has static elements in the UI. There should be solutions out there for the new OLED displays.

I like the thinness of Razer, and general non-flashy, and no nasty gamer look to it. The issue I have is the damn logo. I really hate that tramp stamp lookin logo. They need to do something about that. I never understood the rgb lighting for gamer stuff. Are they trying to create a mini-disco in the gaming space? As far as I see it, they are just distractions.

I like everything about it except the fan noise. It gets crazy loud under load. Now I just use it to run Roon core.

Yeah I think previously people paid the Apple premium because they knew that the machining and build quality of the product that they were purchasing would be top notch. There weren't any Windows laptops that screamed 'premium'. I think that started to change 5 or so years ago when MS was releasing their surface laptop products and other brands started making more premium and well-machined products.

I guess most Apple consumers aren't really purchasing apple laptops for the internal specs either but because they're already so deep in the ecosystem and whatever they consider the brand name holds.

Just a question. Been looking for mouse, but I hate the look of gaming mouses with the nasty rgb and transformer look to them. Anyway, I can ignore all this as long as performance is good. What is the most accurate and precise mouse that is highly durable?

Any experts in mouses can tell me what makes a precise and accurate mouse? Or are they all pretty much the same besides visual designs, ergonomics, and marketting?
