Looking to buy this gaming laptop that is on sale on Amazon at 1500$ CAD. Is it a good investment? Should I wait? I’m just looking for a good laptop who can run maybe games like Fortnite, Apex, DayZ, Sea of Thieves at maybe 100 fps at 1080p/1440p Max Settings. Not looking for one that could run Elden Ring 4k at 100fps iltra graphics.
Don't buy it. It comes with way too many hardware and middleware problems and errors.
Imagine you'd want to take your laptop with you, but:
- 40 minutes in the battery dies
- You literally cannot get the laptop to sleep, causing it to overheat and crash
- Any Armoury Crate update will destroy at least 1 working functionality.
- If you're quite lucky, you won't have any graphics, BIOS or driver issues. Must be the luckiest person in the world though for that to happen
I have the ROG Strix G15 (10750H / RTX2070) mainly because of the fact it wasn't too expensive (bought it back then for 1399 EUR) but it's been a journey of frustration and headache. I'd rather pay a few hundred extra in the future for guaranteed stability.
