The problem has always been thermal throttling mostly when it comes to sustained performance vs. short burts of processing anything.


BTW, I said. REPAIR - CLEANING -- UPGRADING, none of that got better, realy none.


If you have enough space to place a 17" Gaming Laptop + 250w PowerBrick + HOTAS + Rudder Pedals you also likely have the space for a small ITX case that has virtually none of those drawbacks ( ok, its a bit small to work inside but you can ! ), has ALL the right boxes ticked, CPU, GPU, AIO, NVME, SSD, all of YOUR choice, plus a really nice PSU.



Just an idea what alternatives there are for limited to very little space

Almost a carbon copy of my desktop specs Does it run hot/noisy?

CPU sounds like it has room to spare... you could go for quite heavy missions I believe.
