"With the RTX 3070 in our unit and its Core i7-10870H Comet Lake H CPU, we were able to play Cyberpunk 2077 at RTX Ultra in 4K, the highest possible settings, and the visuals were impressive (more on that in the display section below). However, we were limited to around 42 frames per second (fps) "

In Tom's hardware very own cyberpunk benchmarks the desktop 3070 barely reaches 47 fps with 4k on medium settings without ray tracing enabled.

How is it that the laptop 3070 can reach 42 fps with everything maxed out?

The desktop 3080 itself reaches only 49fps with 4k max RTX with DLSS on:

Only a 7fps difference between the laptop 3070 and a desktop 3080?Is there some big mistake here?

Just FYI, you left out one of the storage upgrade options. The M15 R4 has two m.2 2280 slots and also has a 2230 slot (shown to the left and a little above the 2280 slots in the review picture). I have one and upgraded that first as I might make a bigger move and replace the 2280 with two higher capacity drives and go with RAID 0.
