    Yea, mine went into a infinite BSOD/Black screen loop after a bit over 2 years… right in the middle of my finals week last semester… tried whatever fix I could, failed, sent to the shop and they said the motherboard was damaged beyond repair (although I can still get into the bios, but that's about it)… Could be back luck but still :(

      I can get this one for about €500,- the i7 with 16gb and 1050ti. Is it worth my money? Or should I pass?

        I'd say no, I'm not sure what went wrong with my unit, either it was bad and got past QC, or I installed wrong drivers and fried it or I pushed it too hard despite the bad cooling solution of the model (it was fine when I left it running brute force decryption for days in a row, which was months before it died). Died shortly after the warrantee ended, started BSOD loop as I left it on desktop with no apps running after a short Overwatch session.

        Hoping to get a new laptop soon…

        Maybe you could look into the acer ryzen nitro 5 and lenovo legion 5.

        Good luck.
