    Our Create G7s have 2070 Supers in and have a cooler setup just like that and it's bloody awful, it keeps the hardware just back from thermal shutdown/throttle but it practically fries my users' laptops when they're using them. Now as part of a Create G7 deployment, I warn the user not to use it on their lap, on a pillow or in bed because frankly, it's dangerous.

    I always tell people not to use laptops on pillows or in bed as it blocks the vent holes, I would have thought this was obvious on a standard laptop let alone one with dGPU...

    Anything with a 2070 or above in it will be as useful to keep your house warm as well as gaming though to be fair

    Yes, but these are users whom collectively forget the basic of things regarding their computers and laptops, especially when it comes to dGPUs.

    That is true, but it is a little obscene how hot the chassis gets both on the keyboard and base side, frankly laptops with anything above an xx60 shouldn't be focusing on being able to cut paper and just doing the intended job.

    As above. It's just a stupid situation. Stuffing x into y, KNOWING that it might overheat or vastly throttle is WRONG.

    It's time for reviewers to call them ALL out on this.

    Is the RAM upgradable?

    I heard that only 1 nvme slot can be upgraded

    Any proof that stuffing x into y will overheat this?
