I've been Targeting the MSI and Gigabyte Gaming Laptops; While this has everything i want in a truly flexible machine (size/weight; power, aesthetics) I wonder/worry about this and Gigabyte's software and drive suite(s). Does anyone have experience between these brands and can shed some light on their general reliability? It seems like there's plenty of each the MSI, Asus, and Gigabyte machines with 6th-gen intel hardware trading blows in the $1,100-$1,400 range (at resale outlets; Newegg, Amazon, etc)
"the GS40 6QE Phantom can quickly get uncomfortably warm" - Thats a diplomatic way to put it.
This thing will get HOT. I dont even want to think about the temps when there is some dust in the cooling system.
We are talking 50 to 70 degrees C.... on the case.
Owner of a GS60-6QE with the same spec here. The 15" doesn't have the same heat issues when gaming and it's only 4lbs. Does the GS40's Type-C port also support Thunderbolt? The GS60 doesn't have a removable battery, so I seriously doubt the 14" does either.
