I've been around this for a long time and if you want to game, then you put it on a cooling pad. Only your new to this device folk want the laptop to run cool without that pad. Maybe in a few years we can get there but not yet.
These are very similar performing laptops with the odd man out being the one with the 860m GPU. Let's put that at slot 7.
A few have less than 16GB RAM so put those the 5 and 6 slots. The rest are so close to each other that I'll call those a tie.
