Professeur, I think there is a generational and paradigm shift with this kind of laptop.
This is not your typical soldered laptop CPU inside with 45W and a bad cooling system. This is a very capable cooling system and a new generation of discrete desktop Ryzen CPUs that are energy efficient since they are on 7nm, compared to what Intel offers. There are a number of reviews from independent parties for this laptop and all of them come to the conclusion that it can beat most desktop setups (especially of Intel). You can have a look at Linus Tech Tips review, or notebookcheck.de, or der8auer, or Gamer Meld reviews on YT, all of them are astonished how powerful this system is. The only major drawback is the noise level, but for me personally it is not a factor.
