Alright, so I have done a fair bit of researching :pt1cable: on this. My budgests around 1250ish. Getting it strictly for gaming ;) . I have primarily selected 3 laptops but iam still confused between these 3 and don't know which on to go for. :pfff:

So, my must needs are an i7 8th gen along with a 1060 and good cooling, don't care about weight or bulkiness or looks(well not that much) and I need it to last.

Well, these are my 3 primary laptops,

1. Acer Helios Predator 300

2.HP Omen

https://www.amazon.com/HP-i7-8750H-Processor-Anti-Glare-15-dc0030nr/dp/B07CZCFGX8/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1541685065&sr=8-5&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=omen&dpPl=1&dpID=41tYKaUDwUL&ref=plSrch

3. Dell G7

https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Flagship-Anti-Glare-Wireless-AC-MaxxAudio/dp/B07F9T9PY4/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1541685154&sr=8-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=dell+g7&dpPl=1&dpID=41oJAFeQWfL&ref=plSrch

So yeah, what to get outta these 3 ?

But the Dell has a max Q design on its 1060 which runs on slower clock speeds, won't that dramatically slow down the graphical processor speed compared to the others ? for example the Helios has a proper 1060 which fully utilises the full extent of the card delivering better frame rates .

I'd personally take the Helios predator, the 2tb HDD +SSD is still in budget. My experience of hp and dell's is being overloaded with chunks of bloatware which its a tough time to remove.

Further in the buyers questions its a non NVME SSD in the dell.

Unless you really want that T3 connector....

What about heating issues ? I have heard a lot about Helios's heating issues, their heat management strategy is really bad. CPU temperatures reach upto 95 degrees. And i really want my laptop to last for at least 3-4 years

The Acer also has 144hz displays but it's without gsync, btw i have seen to many problems with this i7 iam now considering an i5-8300 which runs much cooler then the i7, don't want my laptop to die early age ;(
