      Licencing costs?

        Nah it's that makers like things that look good on a specifications sheet 120Hz screen seems better to the marketing department than mag alloy high quality build or USB-C charging. It's a damn shame.

          USB-C charging or a "mag alloy high quality build" are not objectively better than a 120Hz screen. I'd argue a 120Hz screen is almost always more valuable.

      Because USB-PD 3.0 tops out at 100W while these gaming laptops usually include 120-180W chargers due to the addition of discrete GPUs.

      I am aware of XPS 15 charging over USB-C when supplied with at least 60W, even though it includes a 130W charger and has the same GTX 1650 (and Dell even makes a seperate 130W charger that can push all that power over USB-C, which is probably using a proprietary protocol).

      …maybe cause it's one of the most expensive non-gaming laptops.

      Also, as the comment above said, licensing costs on cheaper laptops.

      Because it’s more than 65watts.

    that's a very good deal.

    The negative ratings on Amazon re: the touchpad + the fact you can't adjust the rainbow key colour are a shame. :(

    Are there any good laptops in this sort of range that still have separate mouse buttons? I feel like the all-in-one touchpad is such a poor idea (similar to no 3.5 jack on mobiles).

    •  

      I think you can change the colour, but the software is a bit buggy or something. Similar with touchpad actually. Some reviews say they don't work well, others say it's buggy out of the box but can be fixed up

    I pulled the trigger after 2 years wait

      are you happy with this laptop weight and battery life?

        I bought it didn’t I so yeah. All gaming laptops don’t have good battery life when gaming. This one is designed to use built in graphics first when appropriate which vastly improves battery life. I also love the look and military grade construction. The touch pad style is new so some like it while others don’t. Hard to beat this for entry level gaming laptop - great find

        P.S. you can wait for g5 but you trade it for 60hz screen, smaller SSD for gtx1060.
