    Respectable battery life? That's damn near incredible in my opinion. Razer should take note and get this battery in their 1080p Blade. Could you imagine? If Gigabyte can do it, so can they.

    Looks fantastic, ticks lots of my boxes - but the price!

    By the time I've saved up for this, AMD might have finally delivered enough competition to the market leaders in laptop-friendly CPUs and GPUs that prices become more affordable.

    It's also a shame that it's still not yet possible to have long battery life (when not needing ultimate GPU performance) whilst having discrete-level GPU capability and working adaptive sync for the display.

    It seems like a problem you could fix. Why not have some sort of hardware switch to go from discrete to onboard graphics? Almost like an internal Razer Core-like setup.

    So its a laptop for lazy, lardy arsed chair sitters rather than hard grafters.

    This looks awesome. Now, if only Gigabyte would get around to selling laptops here in Norway. Come on. Heck, we even use the same keyboard layout as the UK - all they'd have to change is the print on the keycaps and the lead from the power brick to the wall ...

    If it weighed more than 1.9kg I might agree with you. As it is, my current laptop is considerably heavier (and I guess I'm a lazy chair sitter, though not lardy of arse).

    This is pretty tempting. Ideally, I'd want expanded storage for my needs, so I'm still leaning towards getting a configurable Schenker or maybe Origin model.
