The Eluktronics MAX-15 might not feature the latest and greatest RTX 3000 series GPU, but its internals are still powerful enough to make you believe that this is a desktop replacement and for Cyber Monday 2021, this is one of the best purchases you can make. It only costs $1,699, and after reading about its specifications, you will know why we are recommending this.
For starters, it features a 15.6-inch 240Hz IPS LCD screen and touts a magnesium alloy chassis, making it an extremely light gaming machine that you can also take with you, unlike with a gaming desktop. It also features an Intel Core i7-10875H, which is an 8-core, 16-thread part, and its thermal paste is the Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut liquid metal. This thermal compound is extremely difficult to apply as it is electrically conductive, but when it is applied correctly, it will deliver the best thermal performance of any paste in the market.
Aside from this, you also get the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super, and its power limit can go up to 115W thanks to Eluktronics’ Eluktroboost technology. If you ever feel that you are running out of GPU power, you can always connect an eGPU solution thanks to the available Thunderbolt 3 port. Aside from this, you can get 512GB of PCIe NVMe storage and 16GB of DDR4 2933MHz RAM, with both components easily upgradable.
The battery is a 62WHr, meaning you can carry the laptop away from the plug for a few hours without needing to charge. The only drawback of this deal is that at the time of writing, there are only three units available in stock, so hurry up if you need something like this before you are out of luck.
