    Very interested in this laptop. I can live with the battery life, but it is the noise that I worry about. My laptop has to be able to do everything, and I don't want the noise to be too bad when I am watching movies. How's the noise when the CPU/GPU is not being used very intensively?

    TooNice, it depends on what you consider to be too bad. I found the X5 to be reasonably quiet when idle, but it doesn't take much to trigger the fans - something as simple as a Windows Update can crank up the noise. I think most users would find the noise level just about acceptable when watching movies, but I personally would want my laptop to be quieter.

    Aesthetically its not to bad considering its aimed at the bling, bold and brassy market. ;-) Still to expensive for my taste and any noise is bad noise as far as i am concerned on a laptop.
    Are there matt display laptops that are touchscreen?

    what i think is very impressive in 13 years battery life has improved significantly (from iBook G3 (2002)) while increasing performance by thousands of times

    Re: Aorus X5

    Sorry guys what is it with Hexus only testing two games, one of which is very CPU dependant and one of which is just plain old now? Sure, you briefly mention Witcher 3, but that is very poor gaming test coverage for a specialist gaming laptop review that is almost wholly GPU dependant.

    The review is almost useless in that respect.
    ASUS ROG G751 w. 980M

    Any chance of comparing the Avermedia card to Shadowplay? I suspect the Avermedia card is redundant, but would be nice to see if that is actually the case.

    Along with the use of Killer Ethernet, and SLI 965M over a single 980M it seems to be part of a badge collecting exercise, where you have to believe less really would be more.
