But get this -- HP is offering up to 24.5 hours of battery life with its Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 powered Elite Folio laptop, which is an incredible feat. HP is using a 13.3-inch 1080p display, with Wacom touch/pen input so you can get some notes written easily.

MSI will be showing off its new GE76 Raider gaming laptop in more detail at its MSIology: The Ultimate Shockwave event on January 13, but for now we have a tease of the interesting new gaming laptop.
The new MSI GE76 Raider gaming notebook has an interesting, and very unique "dragon skin" design that does truly look amazing. It's a 17.3-inch premium gaming laptop that will be powered by up to Intel's new Corer i9-10980HK processor and up to NVIDIA's soon-to-be-announced GeForce RTX 3080 mobile GPU.
MSI will reportedly also be offering a 15.6-inch version of the "dragon skin" themed laptop, which will be known as the GE66. NVIDIA's new high-end GeForce RTX 3080 will be powering the premium gaming laptop, so we should expect (hopefully) a higher-end 1440p 165Hz display.
ASUS is working on a new gaming laptop codenamed TUF Dash F15 (FX516P) which is a new mid-range gaming laptop that packs Intel's latest Tiger Lake CPU architecture and upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 mobile graphics.
We're looking at a 15.6-inch display that ASUS will offer in 3 flavors: 1080p @ 144Hz, 1080p @ 240Hz or 1440p @ 165Hz. That's a great spread of resolutions and refresh rates, especially the 1440p @ 165Hz option on a mid-range laptop... great for esports gaming on a laptop.
We should expect 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 on offer, with up to 32GB of DDR4-3200 from ASUS for the TUF Dash F15 gaming laptop -- but we don't have an ETA or pricing right now.
MSI is the first out of the gate to officially list NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 30 series GPU for its new laptops, with the introduction of its new GF65 Thin series gaming notebook.
The new MSI GF65 Thin gaming laptop is powered by an Intel Core i7-10750H processor, and NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q graphics card with 6GB of GDDR6 -- a product NVIDIA hasn't announced just yet. MSI will be offering the new GF65 Thin gaming laptop with a 15.6-inch 1080p 144Hz display, and 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM.
We should expect MSI to be aiming this at gamers who want to spend under $1500 on a new gaming laptop, powered by the new GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q graphics card and 1080p 144Hz display it should be perfect. MSI will be detailing the new GF65 Thin gaming laptop on January 13.
LG has just unveiled its next-gen 2021 Gram family of laptops, with the new Gram 17, Gram 16, Gram 14, Gram 2-in-1 16 and Gram 2-in-1 14 -- all of which include a 16:10 aspect ratio display.
The new flagship LG Gram 17 has its 17-inch panel packing a delicious 2560 x 1600 resolution panel (the same resolution as the Gram 16) at 60Hz. Inside, you'll find an Intel 11th Gen Core CPU and Intel Iris Xe GPU. There's an offer of either 8GB or 16GB of LPDDR4x memory, dual NVMe M.2 SSD slots, and plenty of connectivity.
But LG is making things portable here with the Gram family of laptops, including the Gram 17 that has a huge 17-inch laptop but weighs just 2.98lbs (1.35kg). Pretty incredible considering you have a large 17-inch laptop in your hands, that is also super-thin, too.
You've probably never heard of Mechrevo, but they're working on a kick ass new high-end gaming laptop that rocks a next-gen AMD Ryzen 9 5900H processor and unreleased NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile GPU.
The AMD Ryzen 9 5900H processor inside is an 8-core, 16-thread CPU with a base CPU clock of 3.3GHz and boost CPU clock of up to 4.65GHz. There's also a higher-end Ryzen 9 5900HX processor (high-power), Ryzen 9 5900HS (low-power) and another version in the Ryzen 9 5980HX.
Inside, Mechrevo will be pumping in at least 32GB of DDR4-3200MHz, a 1TB NVMe SSD, and a 17.3-inch 2560 x 1440 display -- but we don't know the refresh rate of the panel just yet, but I'd be surprised to hear it's not a 144Hz refresh rate.
XPG has just announced its upcoming 'Future of Gaming' event planned for the all-digital CES 2021 next week, where the company will be going off its new Xe GPU-based gaming lifestyle ultrabook. Not only that, but the company will be showing off next-gen DDR5 modules, gaming chewing gum, and more.

XPG tease that it has a "sleek and contemporary design that features a premium and elegant CNC anodized aluminum chassis".
