    Don't own the laptop, but the specs are killer. No way that this system won't be able to crank out near 120FPS in most of the games that you'd like to play. Also, HP is rock solid so you can't go wrong there.

    The specifications are mind-blowing. CAn handle all types of games. But in my opinion, if it had SSD storage it would have been better, for even faster booting and launching of the games or applications.

    The specifications is good but the Weight is too heavy are you OK with that?!
    My recommendation is MSI GE75 9SG and Razer Blade Pro 17 RTX 2080 Max-Q
