    I was hoping for a 1060 or at least a 1050Ti...No matter, it'll still be very powerful with the 1050.

    With an ultra HD screen, that 1050 isn't looking up to snuff very much for gaming, I hope the screens support lower resolutions with decent clarity otherwise you are going to have a choice between playing a slideshow or playing a blurry mess.

    I doubt playing at 1080p instead of 4k will be that much of an issue on a 15inch screen....it is a direct scaling of the screen so 4 pixels will be seen as 1 pixel in games.

    It isn't capable of cooling the 960 without serious throttling issues so I doubt a 1060 would do anything other than catch fire.
