    Relating to the heating issue, Can you please post information based on another unit if you say yours is flawed.

    I am stuck between the Lenovo Y720 , the MSI GS63 VR Stealth pro and the Acer Predator Helios 300.

    I just want a reliable laptop to have good build quality and not be uncomfortable while gaming. Can I have your opinion on this matter ?

      I've linked reviews from notebookcheck.net and laptopmedia.com in the article, their units did not overheat as mine did. From what I can tell my unit was flawed, but I can't be 100% sure on that and I don't have another unit to review.

        Alright , you did what you have to .

        Can I get your opinion on those 3 laptops ?

          The Predator Helios 300 is the most affordable (you're in the US, right?), but I'm not a fan of the cooling solution and I'm seeing some quality control issue in the reviews on amazon.

          This Lenovo is well built and gets a decent battery, but it's also bulky and personally I don't like the non-glare coating on the screen. If you plan to keep it mostly indoors that's a non-issue though. This also seems to be quite expensive.

          The GS63 is thin and light, and the best option if portability matters. Being so thin it also runs hot under load, and it's quite expensive.

          You should also consider the Aspire Nitro V15 Black Edition, it's my favorite pick in the niche right now. You'll find reviews for all of these here on the site, use the search at the top.
