Alienware is not 17.3" and does not come with 16gb ram or SSD
Also doesnt Alienware have thermal paste issues?

notebookcheck says this one gets hot and loud too

IMO the early adopter tax is almost done on these; $1500 1060 laptops and $1800 1070 laptops will become more common place.

Do we know this Gigabyte doesn't have thermal paste issues?

The "hot issue" isn'T a thermal paste issue, it's a 6700HQ issue, the processor gets hot and every laptop using it that doesn'T have uber airflow will have the processor reaching high temperatures

Changing the thermal paste aleviates the issue for a while, but it will come back

Yes it does mention that. Makes me a little wary. The notebookcheck tests are full stress tests though I believe. The other reviews did not make a big deal out of temps or noise.
We've seen the 17" ones drop by a few hundred dollars, but most are still over $2200 for full-spec (Alienwares not included).

This is tempting, now that the HP Omen is gone. Very plastic, that's a bummer.

How is this laptop compare to ASUS GL502VS with 1070. It seems to have a similar configuration but with G-SYNC

I bought the MSI GT72VR 6RE over black Friday, how would these compare? Only thing I notice is 32gb vs 16gb of ram. But the price I paid is $600 more so if that's it, I'll return my original and buy this...

Any help appreciated.

I really hope a lot of people buy this, then run their lightbleed and thermal temp tests so we can really see how this stacks up against the Alienwares

The Asus is thinner, lighter, smaller screen, and seemingly has better cooling.

The Gigabyte has a larger screen, no gsync, better battery life (nongaming, due to optimus which does not work with gsync screens), and is a little less expensive. It also comes with a DVD drive, and an adapter to swap the DVD drive for another 2.5" drive.

I think the MSI also has G-SYNC, more M.2 SSD slots and better cooling. It is thicker and heavier though.

It's a beast, but I travel a lot for work so it made sense. But after spending 2800 taxes in I feel a little broke and unsure


What difference does the Gsync make?
