You should go check the gigabyte vr-ready note book, it is on mass drop. It seem to me a bit strange you didn't noticed it. I have a MSI GS63VR, which cost me 1,799. It has Geforce GTX 1060 6 GB, i7-6700 HQ, 15.6 inch display,5400 rpm HDD, 128 GB SSD if you don't consider it's super-slim design it's nothing better than that gigabyte one on Massdorp now. By the way I personally don't consider APU or AMD processor as a choice, for they usually take more power and produce more heat compare to Intel ones. Just personally, I won't use them. Maybe Zen can make a different. Well unless I misunderstand your definition of "Gaming Level Laptop"
