That seems like a pretty good price. Personally, I dont feel too solid about Lenovo reliability. I would prefer Asus or MSI for a gaming laptop, but that is just my gut feeling, no real data to back it up except that my grandson has an Asus gaming laptop that is still going strong after 5 years, although of course the gpu is outdated.

Im so confused, why is it so expensive? it doesnt have a dgpu? only 256gb nvme? 8th gen intel chip? whats the good part im missing? OHHH i missed the 2070 thats why its 1200.. OK sorry.. how many fans does it have, thin chassis sometimes wont let the chips run at full speed and require throttling, just read a review i guess and if it does full speed have fun.
