Great laptop.
Great laptop. Very solid build.

Beyond Gaming
Bought laptop for video processing and writing, felt a game system would give me the "umph" I wanted. Not disappointed. Speed and computing power is wonderful and now that I am used to the keyboard, ergonimcs work for me.

Promising start, hoping drivers and bios will enhance/fix, but worried about the screen back fragility
Screen flexes a bit and feels fragile, but rest of chassis feels solid. (Been spoilt with bomb-proof mil-spec Lenovos for the past few years)
4k screen seems OK, but haven't properly tested yet.
Keyboard is generally OK. Would substitute the light display for slightly less flex.
Fan is loud (I thought the Max-Q versions were supposed to be quieter) and comes on under the slightest bit of CPU/GPU load (15% upwards). Have updated all drivers from Sager / Clevo but no change. Waiting for BIOS update, but so far none released.
Track pad is a bit rough, but works well 98% of the time, but gets mixed up sometimes and ends up zooming instead of scrolling.

Great Value and Build Quality
I got this laptop a few weeks ago and have been loving it. The build quality is pretty good and it runs everything i have thrown at it. I think that this is the best of the Max Q laptops as it is the best build quality, and best value of them.

The only thing i do not like about it is the backlight on the monitor. Currently i have some tape covering it up, but i will be covering it up with a skin at some point.
