    If I learnt something from my MSI PG75 Leopard, is that the next laptop I'll take will be the bigger one.
    Cant even run 3/4 of the power without heat problem

    If it's thin it can't be gaming. Simple as that. God laptops are such a scam. Ever wonder why no one wants to sell the "thinnest gaming pc case"?

    There are tons of small gaming PCs advertised as being small gaming PCs...

    I'm lucky to have you make me think of that!
    why havent I thought of that, the day I received it, to check if the fans that are supposed to cool an i7 10750h@5ghz(4.3 on all cores I know) + rtx2070m on a 1/2in thick laptop, were not clog of dust

    I'll make sure to tell all the others that suffers from overheating and are trying to undervolt/underclock their laptop to cease all their doing and clean their fans, because I'm sure they too never thought of that

    long time owner of a M17 first gen, I can confirm, fan cleaning is the number one maintenance topic, 2 to 4 time per year is the good amount

    Gaming ..... The term is so wide it means nothing , you can play 30 fps 720 p some modern games .... Or old even ? I mean technically it can play games so marketing wise they can call it gaming ,it seems that this one sports a 3050 witch is low mid range for laptops sure it can game , but nowhere close what we consider gaming in an enthusiast forum here we are the 1-2%
