I have the 8th gen version of this laptop with a 2070 and I love it. In addition to the 512gb nvme ssd it comes with, it has room for one more m.2 ssd (nvme supported) and a 2.5" ssd. Idk about the 10th gen, but I run my 8th gen with a 0.15v undervolt and it runs like a dream.

I bought my wife the new Asus Zephyrus G14, top spec model was right around $1500 bucks.

It is a beast. And six boxes no problem too, using the integrated graphics, even before you enable the dedicated 2060 in it.

that's it at best buy

lots of reviews out there. then again, if you dont' need it to be quite so portable, this may not be the best choice for the dollar.

tech specs: https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/ROG-Zephyrus-G14/Tech-Specs/

Get the 2060 graphics card, the 4900HS processor, and 16GB memory minimum would be my recommendation.

Honestly though, if you're not in a rush, I'd wait for more vendors on their next refresh cycle to bring in these new AMD mobile chips. They are fantastic performers for the cost, and I expect competition will help either price, features, or both.

I bought a Acer Nitro 5 and have really had no issues with it. I am able to run 10 accounts on it at once for TSing and can run multiple accounts for boxing. I added additional memory because only came with 8 GB's. The only thing I don't like about it is it has Windows Home but that is easily fixable when I need to re image it.

I bought it about a year ago and was around 700.00 but did get a deal on it at the time.

If you can get a 4000 series (4800/4900) amd cpu, I would recommend it. However intel mobile cpus are a lot more common and can often be found for a better deal. To 6 box I would recommend at least a 6-core cpu, with an 8-core being ideal. Also make sure the laptop has sufficient cooling to accommodate hours of 6 boxing. Generally the lighter and thinner the laptop the worse the cooling, although that is not always the case. You will probably want to watch some YouTubers review the specific laptop you are after to see how their cooling solution holds up.
