Whats the best laptop to buy for large walkthroughs

I picked up an Acer Predator Helios 500 a couple months ago and it has been working out great so far. Chief runs wonderfully on it. My only two complaints are that its pretty heavy (not a big deal), and it won't fit in 90% of the laptop bags out there. Had to buy a large one on amazon. I picked mine up for about $1500. I went to the store planning on buying the slightly larger version with a GTX 1080 and saw this one next to it. I'm very glad I went with the smaller one; the 1070 is plenty powerful for what I've been using it for and I'd hate to lug around anything heavier.

It would be Ray Tracing that caused the most overheating as it pushes the CPU hard on all Cores. MSI seems to have found a good cooling solution for the newer i7 6 core CPUs like the 8750H. I had a GP73-8RE for a few weeks but I found it had a bad USB port so it was returned and as yet I have not re-purchased but I didn't do any walkthrough with it sorry.

 

Someone posted last week about a good deal on one at BB in the US...i'll see if I can find the thread again.
