    Looking to get a laptop 15.6 inch screen with a gtx 1070. is it important to have gsync with 120hz screen? i still dont even really understand the whole 120hz and gsync and what it really does vs a standard 60hz screen i am so used to. the laptops im looking at seem so only have 120hz with a thin form factor laptop vs the thicker ones have 120hz and gsync.

    What resolution? If its 1080p try and spring for one with gsync if its your primary gaming machine. If not thin and light with standard 60hz panel will be fine.

    120hz vs 60hz is like 60 FPS vs 30 FPS. I have a few monitors, one 120/144/165hz and it's wonderful.

    I'm picking up a new laptop soon myself and hope to find what I want with 120hz and gsync. I'll likely go Alienware. The Max-Q laptops don't seem to be worth it.

    I'd love a sager / clevo, but need better warranty support.

    Asus Zephyrus. What's your price range? If you're willing to spend the money the gtx1080 is an option for it. If they had a 17" Zephyrus I'd be all over that. If you're gaming, you want G-sync. It will blow your mind, seriously.
