However, we do need to point out one significant weakness: While Lenovo uses one of the quietest cooling systems in comparison, this measurable positive effect is undone by a subjectively very unpleasant high-frequency fan noise.

Yes!! Couldn't agree more! I returned mine exactly and only for this reason. It's a real shame, because otherwise the laptop was perfect for my needs. In fact, sometimes I now think, maybe I was being oversensitive, but no, it was driving me crazy. Really hope they fix this on their next model...

Yeah, I think it is quite extraordinary that this notebook scored better than Asus Zenboox UX534 with 2 screens. Adding to that fact that Asus costs like 300-500 $ more is even more astonishing.
Seems like a killer laptop with such price and 1650!

I actually just bought one of these but sending back as mine had extreme light bleed from the top right and the fans are so damn annoying. Exceptionally quiet while gaming but erratic and constantly fluctuating when even just having a single tab open in a browser.

Such a shame as, if not for those, I would say this is the best all rounder for the price out there. It's crazy how quiet and cool this thing is when gaming and the battery life is great for the specs.

"Those who love movies should be pleased by about 14.5 hours of video pleasures at reduced brightness".
By video pleasures, do you mean movies in VLC player or pornhub? How did you last 14.5 hours btw? You're a stud.

Double performance (which is arguable at best) sounds like a lot if not for the god awfull performance of the igpu anyway (intel, vega is a bit different)

double the vega igpu performance. if we count minimums and some multitasking-a real world scenario. i have vega 8 now in my hp17-ca.

I would prefer to spend the money on thunderbolt (egpu box will be expensive but the gpu for it could be something older and/or 2nd hand)

egpu is the most useless computer device in history. a nonsense. it's pretty hard for me to imagine a worthy scenario for this thing. pure marketing. because why should i use egpu with the small laptop screen and a keyboard with bad ergonomics? isnt egpu+emonitor+ekeyboard a better choice? so who prevents you from more comfortable gaming with all these devices packed into desktop?

something that will be garbage now and need to be replaced very soon anyway

replaced? people usually buy gpus that are enough for them. if it's not enough, buy a faster one. these are called market segments. you make it sound like everyone needs top-end graphics cards. from this position sure the faster the better but obviosly im not talked about that. :(
dota and world of warcraft lasts for decades, remind you. and average laptop 2 times less.

a waste of silicon, money and pcie lanes

i think mx150(250) is the best laptop gpu ever. double the performance from the best igpu for 50usd. must have thing.

I would prefer to spend the money on thunderbolt (egpu box will be expensive but the gpu for it could be something older and/or 2nd hand) and have options down the line instead of getting something that will be garbage now and need to be replaced very soon anyway (I don't buy into the current disposable trend that's going on but YMMV)

But still - you can play CS:GO, Dota 2, LoL, Overwatch, Starcraft 2 etc. comfortably on high settings with this garbage ;)

If Geforce GTX 1650 Max-Q is an entry-level gaming card, what a MX 250 is?

The therm-cap seems like fn+q function deactivated. I think you should switch to performance mode insdead of using the default balance mode when doing stress tests.

The 15-inch all-rounder brings a GTX 1650 Max-Q in an elegant, slim aluminum case and is able to draw some attention with many positive values in the test. Those include the bright, high-contrast display and the fast SSD, for example. However, it also shows a significant weakness.
