Wow, rtx2060 for sub 1000. Is it because the new laptops with new gpus are coming out?

Pretty good price but honestly unless you need a laptop it's pretty subpar

Slow ram speed
Mediocre screen
Mid tier cpu

Its prob good for your needs but I think once the new laptops land these will go down further if there is stock.

At least that's what I'm waiting for.

Good luck and hope you like it if you purchase it.

Ya, RTX 3000 based laptops are on pre-order now, should be released in March.

Legion is a pretty decent entry-level gaming laptop. Solid specs, IPS screen.
Thumbs up.

Pretty good deal; I paid $899 for the GTX 1650 with the I7 last year.. and upgraded the ram

the RTX 2060 is a significant upgrade. Hey if anyone buys this and is interested in mine ill throw in $100 for a swap haha

CPU/GPU are of course no go's

FWIW, I have a Y570 with the 144hz IPS screen... I almost never use it and game on an external monitor instead...

$869 in the perkopolis link. Will they add tax to that? I prefer a AMD Ryzen though for the better performance

Exactly what I did. Bumped it up to 32 mainly for when I’m editing videos

This is why I felt comfortable with the 60hrz screen I never actually use it. I use a 165hrz external and have no issues what so ever.
