    A £500 premium for a graphics card upgrade is too much - if it was a 1080 then yeah it'd be understandable, but you can't charge nearly 3 grand for a rig that can barely game in its native resolution!

    Apart from that though I like it - imagine the amount of gaming you could get in by only playing at 1080p, the GPU would be so under-utilised I bet you'd eke out a lovely amount of playtime

    Things are just getting expensive. The Blade Pro has those extra features, but it's like 3500 GBP, so another 600 GBP price hike. -____-

    EVGA must be huffing glue if they think that's competitive.

    The Asus seems to beat the EVGA in most things, has a 1070 in it and is £600 less. Is £600 worth it for a 4k screen?

    And is wired up for G-Sync. Can't believe EVGA would sacrifice it just to save on battery, it's not like it's winning any battery life awards in the first place.

    Not in my mind. 17"@1080p already has decent DPI IMO. And good luck driving games at 4K with a 1070 in that kind of thermal profile.

    I don't get 4k at anything lower than 27". 17" at 1080p already is more than enough to not see individual pixels -_-
