    Crappy 4core i7, 6gb gpu and barely any system ram to play anything. Not tempting at all.

    i7-11370H, I think these are great characteristics of a laptop.

    I've reserved an Asus Tuf Gaming A15 (AMD R7 5800H 8C/16T, 2x 8GB RAM, RTX 3070) for about the equivalent of 1144 pound sterling. When I get back to my home country, I'll be getting it.

    I need a gaming capable laptop as I will be commuting to two other countries, Canada and Thailand, so the A15 should be able to sate my gaming urges.

    An update, I've decided to get a Lenovo Legion 5 Pro with following specs:
    AMD Ryzen R7 5800H
    RTX 3070 (140W TGP)
    2560x1600 (WQXGA) screen res

    It's used or pre-owned, but still has 2 years of Lenovo 'Ultimate' care which basically mean I'm covered for two more years of repair and servicing I think. I should be getting this badboy later today.....actually would have like an all AMD leppy, with the 6800M, but the seller is asking for too high a price for a lappy with no more warranty.

    ga104 with 8g g6 and 130w it's nice but it'll require tweaking
    and a rocket lake cpu hell no
    with 1600 you can do a lot better

    power limits as usual hurt more than they help
    id never put anything more than 3070 die inside a laptop and that would only be the cacse with a custom uv bios

    BF2042 is a laptop stress test, even on low settings.

    One thing I must say about the Lenovo warranty, it da SHIZZNIZZLE! The laptop I'd gotten is covered by Premium Care Onsite warranty, and due to really bad temps (102C during game), I'd had to call them. A tech turned up two days later, not their fault, they had wanted to come the day after my call/request, but I was out.

    Anyway, the tech turned up today, opened up my laptop and boy-oh-boy, the fans were totally clogged choked with dust. The tech had forgotten to bring along his cleaning kit, and instead opted to replace the entire HSF assembly, he applied new thermal paste and now, after a session of gaming, my CPU showed 86C at most, with GPU around mid 70s. Really awesome support and service, so glad I'd gone with Lenovo!

    A shot before the tech got to work on it....really bad clogged up fan intakes, no wonder my CPU and GPU were running hot!

    A shot of the replacement cooling assembly, really impressed with the work done....

    When he was done, I'd installed the SSD (below), I know it's a craptastic drive, but for my usage scenario, it's fine. I'd be installing games in it, from my libraries on Steam and EGS, and the games would basically stay in the drive permanently...no constant writes and rewrites.
