hi Dave, where would you place the strix scar 15? im buying it next week. i am going for last year models, because the 2020's price drops here in my country.

Your list was pretty good, but I'd keep in mind, something like the legion 5 could be many people's (and my) first pick because it's running 2060 for around 1000 bucks, good 1000 laptop value there and incredible cpu

Dave placing my tuf 15 in D tier was a surprise. I have the rtx 2060/ ryzen 7 4800h version, and I think this thing is a beast, especially the 90w battery. I would place it at least in B tier ✋

Poor A15, had to went down so low. I think thats a bit rough considering the performance and pricing values makes up for it.

My S tier would be the AMD Lenovo 5, because it doesnt embarrasses you when your do something in public or in school and performs well with good cooling and build quality. Dont understand why the Omen is above just because they improved their Thermal Design

I use a dell Inspiron 15 3501. I got it for around 700 usd (691) and it’s been really good. I got a 8gb of ram and 256gb of ssd storage. It’s been really great for a student like me and I think it was a really good buy :)

My budget is around $1600. I'm hesitant between g14 3060 and 2070 max-Q, or other laptops like omen or legion 5. I am not sure if the new g14 uses a real 3060 or 3060 laptop gpu because they say it’s about 110w. I researched significantly on g14, and barely know about the others. Can I have an advice? I play most of the AAA games on Stadia, but I still think having a high video card is better off in the future. I intend to keep it for 5 years. Thank you

Dave, can you be sure to keep linking the spreadsheet in each of your videos moving forward so that viewers have ready access to how the spreadsheet information is developing? Also, creating a video like this every 3 months makes sense instead of once a year. Thank you, Ravi Peiris M.D.

Dave, I'm a 51 year old, healthcare professional making $50K USD per month and like I did in my college days, I always look for value. This video was very exciting for me because at a glance, your tier system encapsulated what type of gaming laptop I might further research and purchase. I appreciate the time you take to review each unit as you are a master of your craft, something seriously lacking in healthcare right now - but that's a story for another time. Be well, Ravi Peiris M.D.

Hello @Dave2D I hope you or any of your followers will help me. I would like to buy a new laptop. I'm a graduate student, so it will be mainly for school work. I want one that lasts for a long time and is quick in working. I have a budget of around $800 for it. I have read that Thinkpad laptop would be a good choice. What do you think? I need recommendations with links, please. I'm tired of searching. Thank you!!!

Dave 2D - G14 - Best laptop of the year! Me: Purchased the G14 Me: Outperforms other massive gaming laptops, 9+ hours of non-gaming battery life. Silent mode goes totally quiet which makes it great for studio audio recording. Solid build quality. Great keyboard and mouse pad. NOT a fingerprint magnet... Excellent. Best laptop purchase ever. :)

I'd put Legion 5 (Ryzen version) in the S Tier and AERO15 as low as a C/D. Owned both so can definitely say that Legion deserves higher highs and Aero just stinks because of the cooling system issues.

seantherobonaut Månad sedan
I'd argue the legion 5 gaming laptop belongs in the S tier because it has amazing thermals, has a great screen option 144Hz IPS (100% sRGB) 300 nits, lenovo's amazing keyboard, and if you get the 4600h chip (instead of the more power hungry 4800h) combined with an 80 whr battery(purchase separately), you can have a gaming laptop you can use for school that can last up to 10 hours with screen brigthness at 50% and background apps disabled. Also, I had a really bad experience with MSI's GS66 in terms of thermals and fan noise. That thing would reach 95C just playing destiny 2 on high settings and the housing was hot to the touch. Their screen was nice and the dragon center was "ok", but sometimes the keyboard lighting would glitch out and the control center could not alter it without a couple system restarts. It should be in the C or even D tier. Edit: Also, selecting the legion 5 with a 4600h cpu, you can get an RTX 2060 max-p that is allowed to take 115 watts which will put it on equal ground (and some times better) than the RTX 2070 max-q (80 watt). To me, that is amazing for only a $75 increase from the GTX 1660Ti to the RTX 2060 max-p. Also, this laptop allows you to use g-sync from a range of 60-144Hz so when games become more demanding you can manually configure your screen to go down to 120Hz so your games won't stutter by trying to reach 144Hz. There is also an option to disable optimus to improve performance even more. Due to it's superior thermals and the configuration I'm citing, I'd argue this laptop is the best out of all of them.

@Winter Melon I ordered mine on the 15th, I'm so damn excited. It says I'll ship on the 31st and I should have it by the 7th of next month.
Winter Melon

@seantherobonaut I checked it myself, 8 CPU lanes are more than enough for RTX 2060 max-p. You only need 16 lanes when your GPU is RTX 2070 (PC version) and above.
seantherobonaut 19 dagar sedan
@Winter Melon not sure, if it does I'm really only concerned with game performance and I've heard the 4600h can keep up with the rtx 2060 max-p easily
Winter Melon

What about the CPU supporting only 8 lanes? Can that maybe bottleneck the performance?

Hi Dave. I would tend to disagree with your clasification on some laptops how you grade them. I guess imho the correct clasification should be laptops capabilities vs each other, diesnt matter is it light upgrade or totally new. To add - incl build quality, reliability, etc. I have heard xps has a lot of issues related to build quality. And now i sed u put it to S tier, meaning you reccomend to purchase. While i dont think it to be a good purchase. Or i am missing something here?
