In terms of build quality of the above, Razer > Lenovo > G14
I would also look into the Dell Precision lineup of laptops as well as HP's ZBook lineup. I would remove the G14 from the equation, it is a gaming laptop with mediocre build quality at best
Wow cool razer can make a MBP 13" competitor that's got a massive logo on the back. Remind me why, outside of I/O, I wouldn't go for the XPS 13 on sale, or even the Razer Stealth?
This just seems like a way to phase out the iGPU only models of the Stealth
Any Z97/H97 board with M.2 will either be limited to x4 2.0, or use CPU lanes to achieve x4 3.0. Realistically you would be much better off a with a AM4 (Ryzen) or LGA 1200 (Intel) build. 1151 is EOL. I would wait for the 10100F to release, itll be faster than the 4790 at ~$20 less than what I...
X79 is 40 lanes off the CPU, then 8 off the PCH (locked to x4 2.0 bandwidth). Modern Intel is 16 PCIE lanes off the CPU, then 24 off the chipset (locked to x4 3.0 bandwidth). Modern Ryzen is variable, but the mainstream chips have 20, a x16 link then a primary M.2 at x4, then an additional 16...
Ah, was thinking of a different board. Just know that if you put the ssd in any PCIE slot, your main x16 link drops to a x8 due to lack of CPU lanes, the low speed could be due to distance from the CPU itself. The board has a onboard m.2 connector, but itll only run at ~800MBps
