    A 1080p high-FPS panel in a 15.whatever" format with G-Sync and a 1060 would not only be an awesome mini gaming machine but decently priced and have a good battery life. It feels like all laptops are just badly matched parts nowadays.

    The whole gaming hardware market feels like a dinosaur. Normal computers are a quarter of the power consumption that they were, with all the benefits in noise, size and battery life that's brought.

    Gaming systems are still drawing over a hundred watts and in laptop form are hot, noisy and have laughable battery life. Max-Q, the point of maximum stress, seems like an appropriate name for this latest attempt to fit altogether too much power draw into a fashionable chassis.

    I agree, cooling seems to be the biggest problem right now. That and the price paid for the form factor.
