Hey everyone,
I am considering buying a gaming laptop which specs are as following:

- Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-8750H Six Core Processor, 9M Cache, 2.20 GHz up to 4.10 GHz
- Graphic Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 with NVIDIA® Max-Q Design Technology, 6GB GDDR5 video memory
- RAM Memory: 16GB‎ DDR4 2666MHz (8GBx2)
- HDD & SSD Memory: 1TB (5400RPM) Sata + 256GB SSD
- Display: 15.6 Inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS Anti-Glare LED-Backlit
- Battery: 56 WHr, 4-Cell Battery (integrated)
- Ports: 1 x Headphone/Mic
3 x SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A including one with PowerShare
1 x Type-C™ Thunderbolt™ 3 with support for 40 Gbps Thunderbolt and DisplayPort
1 x HDMI 2.0
1 x Power/DC-in Jack
1 x Gigabit Ethernet RJ45


and I have a few questions:

1. Is the laptop powerful enough to run modern games like BFV, PUBG smoothly on highest settings?
  1. I would like to know if CPU and GPU will work well together or one of them will bottleneck the other's performance
  2. Will I be able to connect 2 monitors to it (I dont understand how the port saying "Type C with support for display port" works)
  3. I have never worked with a good laptop before and my biggest concern is if the performance will last for a few years. (Every laptop I have ever worked with, that is 2 years old, was incredibly slow and frustrating)
  4. I have read that laptop components are not as powerful as their PC equivalents. Is it true and does it mean that I should take into consideration that "System Requirements" published for games does not apply to my laptop?
Sorry for the long post and many questions, I hope you can answer them all since this is a big purchase for me and I would like to be 100% sure about it.
