    It's been 3 weeks since Dave2D reviewed the new Blade Pro. Where are all other reviews?

    I was really hoping to see some detailed reviews before purchasing, but there's very little information about this laptop out there apart from the end of April announcements. I currently have the Aero 15x v7, but wanted a larger screen (17") for gaming. I don't usually order until I see some reviews, but feeling impatient. I placed an order for the 2080mq model this morning as soon as I saw that they were accepting orders.

    I'm a little apprehensive about 1080p @ 17". While perfect for gaming, I would prefer higher res for work related tasks. If the 17 isn't enough of a step up from the Blade 15, I may return and order the 15" 4K OLED version along with an Asus XG17 17.3" portable monitor for gaming.

    I just got mine yesterday and setting it up now.

    I just changed from the blade 15 to this since temps supposed to be better and I prefer the second m.2 slot for more storage.

    First impression is that its a fair bit larger than the 15 (as expected) but still what I would consider portable...

    Built quality is excellent and temps are lower than the 15 ( same 9750h cpu and 2080 MQ gpu) . The gpu runs noticeably cooler and with higher boost clocks in 3dmark.

    I will post some 3dmark scores and temps when I have the time to really test out the system

    Ah, brilliant!

    My biggest question in whether the Pro is quieter/same/louder than the RB15 under load (ie playing a AAA game). Using both balanced (my preference) and gaming profiles.

    Like TheGrouch said above... I usually wait for proper reviews before making a purchase like this... but I'm getting extremely impatient! :)

    Nice! Would love to see the temps after a prolonged stress test, like Prime95 and Furmark at the same time.

    I was wondering why they haven't sent more out? Dave2D is a smaller channel so it seemed like they wanted less coverage? Not sure why as it would appeal to alot of people.

    *Looks at your profile picture* Hey wait a minute. What's your unit number?
