yes, gaming notebooks get warm...hot even, but when gaming it's likely to be on a desk/table, not your lap, so heat isn't an issue unless there is serious CPU throttling going on.

Aren't laptops hard to cool? If you use them for gaming, don't they get hot or warm? I suspect the fans get loud?
I would recommend an ITX build if you want to game and have it somewhat mobile. The only negative for that is that you have to connect a display but how different is that with some notebooks that are 'hybrids' - acting as tablets with the screen detachable?
At least, with some itx builds, you can install discrete graphics cards of your choice (for the most part - within limits). Yes, those are hard to cool, too, and you might have noise but I suspect it's easier to deal with than notebooks - probably cheaper, too?

Try and put an ITX build in a Swiss Brief Case :doh: ...we're talking "portable" as in hotel rooms...at work (work out of town).....need to be able to transport it in a brief case....

they get toasty but new (especially MSI / ROG) are built for this....I recommend sticking to a 15" vs a 17" ....lighter and more portable...set-up an aggressive fan speed for your GPU .....my ROG Asus runs all new titles on the 1070M very well at Med to High settings 1920 *1080....GPU reaches and settles at around 75c - 82c .....dont notice the fan noise much as your usually wearing head phones or ear buds.....
