This laptop can run shit with RTX graphics and high/ultra preset on most modern games, but the batterly life is fucking garbage. 30 minutes and it is empty JFL. It also sounds like a jet engine, when I am in class everybody looks at me when my laptop just decides to run at 150 dB. Ngl I don't play a lot of video games anymore so a gaming laptop is useless to me. I might still play Steam games on it at home as a desktop PC, but fuck this laptop. Besides, I can stream Xbox games from the cloud to a Chromebook and connect my controller with bluetooth so I can play games on it if I want to as well.

It's a year old, I would probably have to sell it for half. And I am waiting for an RTX 3070 Mini because I don't want a huge rig.

Why not buy a PS5 if u can wait till Dec, rather than another PC?

Does Xbox have games that aren’t on pc?
A select few like Forza Motorsport 7 and Halo 5, Microsoft releases most of their exclusives on PC + Xbox consoles these days. But you got Xbox Play Anywhere so you buy 1 copy and you can play your copy on PC and Xbox, and your phone with the same save game shared. Microsoft is way more consumer friendly in pretty much every aspect.

Sony on the other hand basically forces you to buy PS5 if you want to enjoy their games.

Install intel XTU, change the power profile, change the fan curve as well.

I never owned a laptop but I'm impressed you owned a $2k one.
