I'm sorry to hear that, but Windows has nothing to do with it. It might be bad QC or just a bad unit, exchange it and see what you get.

@JFlash20 Its to do with the fact that low and even mid-tier Windows laptop manufacturers are just cobbling components together into a tiny form factor from multiple sources with no synergy. Take a look at this post on the g14 subreddit. A whole write up of issues that you have to deal with before you can even start using the laptop. https://www.reddit.com/r/ZephyrusG14/co ... to_common/
I've tried the Razer Blade 15, Thinkpad X1, and now this one, each with different quality issues... Think i'm just gonna stick with Apple for laptops and settle with building a pc for gaming/dGPU i guess.

If you want to save a few more dollars, keep an eye on the Best Buy Open Box as when this sale is on, the open box drops to $1409.99. This sale has come and gone a few times in the last few months, so while you might not be able to get an open box this time around, you might be able to get it next time if you're quick.

I don't think you can get AMD zen 2 chips + nvidia 1660ti in an apple laptop at all.

Please note amazon warehouse deals have only a 90 day warranty and are unlikely to be eligible for manufacturer's warranty. I personally wouldn't do it to save $220 on a laptop with lots of knows issues.

Love the specs, but I'm worried about the build quality.

If your laptop has a defect (scratch, etc), you are able to return it well over a year after purchase if you complain (I've been able to, didn't return though). I've also used manufacturer's warranty with no issues. There's obviously a risk, but you can find steals on open box items.

I just checked and those items, marked used, are only 30 days return period from amazon. If amazon will give you back your money for longer, that's at their discretion rather than a policy, and not something you should plan for.
