  1. Good kist, but by years end the Acer Helios 300 (2018) by Acer will be the top seller on Amazon, proving it should be on this list somewhere.
  2. The Dell highlighted is the $3599.99 model (with the GTX1080, i9, and 32gbs Ram). The price quoted is for the base model, with bog standard components.
  3. Sounds like this is missing the best one this year: Gigabyte Aero 15X-BK4 15.6"

    Intel Core i7-8750H (2.2GHz-4.1GHz) - 6 cores
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GDDR5 8GB Max Q
    16 GB DDR4 2666MHz Memory
    512GB M.2 NVME PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD
    94.24Wh 10hrs Long Battery

    Light, powerful, upgradable and long battery. Wonder why its not listed here...
  4. So the best "Under $1,000" laptop is price at $1,049?? I guess math is hard at Tom's Hardware
  5. sigh, and if you go to Dell's web site the price is actually $1179...
  6. What's the recommendation for a laptop with 17" inch screen, 1080p ips g-sync 60hz+, gtx 1070, and i7 8th gen? I prefer FHD since it's possible for higher refresh rates than 60hz. QHD is ok but looks bad if you have to scale something down to 1080p. 4K is more than even a gtx 1080 can handle, is limited to 60hz but I guess it scales down perfectly to 1080p.

    The acer predator helios 500 seems to fit the bill, but it's not on this list.
  7. Also not listed is IMHO the best thin gaming laptop option:

    ASUS ROG Zephyrus M Ultra Slim Gaming Laptop
    15.6” IPS 144Hz G-Sync FHD Display
    Intel i7-8750H
    GeForce GTX 1070 (not the crappy Max Q version)
    16GB DDR4
    256 NVMe SSD (OS)
    1TB FireCuda (Storage)

    MSRP $2199 (got mine for $1760 open-box on Amazon)

    NOTE: Asus released the newer "S" version which has a lower MSRP of $1999, but comes with a slower/weaker 1070 "Max Q" GPU, and doesn't come with the capability for a 2.5 inch drive bay. Also, there are a lot of complaints about the new hinge design which allows for a thinner display bezel at the expense of not being able to tilt the display back further.
  8. I need to purchase a touch screen laptop. 15 inch, 16-32 gb ram, 6 -8 Gb dedicated Graphic card, backlit keyboard. Any recommendations? Use will be for REVIT, AutoCad, etc.
