AORUS 15-X9-RT4AD Core i7-8750H NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 16 GB Memory 512 GB Intel SSD 1 TB HDD Win10 15.6" FHD LG IPS 144 Hz Gaming Laptop -- ONLY @ NEWEGG

Pros: -A good looking 144hz 1080p display. -Decent RGB keyboard. -Button on keyboard to change fan speed to two modes. -Cooling system is really nice. Really pulls air through the system cooling it pretty nicely. -Really nice storage options you get two NVMe m.2 slots and one 2.5 slot. Which can give you really nice storage space. Taking apart and installing new storage devices is easy also. -The I7 8750h and Rtx 2070 have nice performance. -The Aorus has a nice look to it. -The 512GB Intel ssd is a nvme m.2 drive with good speeds. It is a Intel 760p Series which has windows on it. -The 1TB hdd is a Seagate Barracuda Pro which is not bad. But I replaced it with a samsung sata 860 evo ssd.

Cons: -Fans get loud at max speed but not much of a con for me. -Rtx 2070 performance is good but not for ray tracing. -Wish display was 1440p than 1080p

Overall Review: I have always been a desktop gamer never wanted a gaming laptop due to desktop counterparts being better. But since I plan on going into the navy I needed something more mobile. After looking at a lot of laptops I find the Aorus 15 x9 had the best storage options and performance for a good price. After a day with it I was surprised at the performance of the cpu and gpu both scored higher in 3DMark than my I7-5820k and gtx 980ti at stock speeds on my desktop. I would recommended this laptop if you need something mobile but if you going to play at home more a desktop would be a better offer at the price point.
