For anyone still looking, the actual laptop is a quanta nl5e. I received mine yday and played VR "the lab" for a few hours. Cpu temps hit 95° and gpu 85°. I'll probably get a cooling pad and swap out the thermal compound at some point but those temps are still within "safe" operating temps. Any questions give me a shout
Problem is that doesnt tell us much because some people are actually stupid enough to try gaming with the laptop on their lap which blocks the vents and causes very bad overheating issues. Most issues can be resolved just by changing the thermal compound and putting it on a desk or on top of a laptop cooling pad. I had similar issues with an asus gaming laptop when i got it temps would hit 90c on the cpu when gaming and after i changed the thermal compound and put it on a cooling pad the cpu wouldnt go above 79c when gaming and the gpu wouldnt go above 74c.
I myself bumped the SSD up to 500gb. I wasn't aware of the sata hdd/ssd conflict but if I need more space down the line I'll just add an m2 ssd As stock the setup comes with 1 stick of 8gb ram, it's £32 to add another one and make use of dual channel. My configuration brought me over £1000 ex vat which lets you pick up the freebie Corsair mouse. Its a £20 jobbie on Amazon but may aswell (y)
Question whether you really need a gaming laptop before jumping in rather than a mid-range gaming-capable one and a desktop. I’ve had gaming laptops for a while and inevitably never really move them as much as I plan to (as they weigh so much) so they end up resigned to a desk and left plugged in. Also if you get an Alienware while it will cost more, you also get much better resale values.
seems a very good price for the spec i'm still looking for my first gaming laptop was edging towards the alienware and hoping for some good reductions on black friday/ christmas promotions hmmm
