    Sweet.

    It just feels like the worst patience test of the year to wait for the Amazon Prime version of 15X.

    I see that Newegg just brought in some more. I might just jump in :)

    Can one of you guys who bought it from newegg confirm the m2 nvme ssd and memory brands? Also, they list the memory as 1x16gb, but some of the reviews say 2x8gb. Confirming this would be sweet so I know whether to order up some extra stuff right off the bat to install :)

    My new credit card declined the charge because of the amount and security reasons. After clicking yes to making the charge they said re-order the laptop again. So yeah, checked Newegg this morning and out of stock again. I need to be quicker... :{

    Amazon and Excalibur are pre-orders for October 16th.

    I just preordered from gentechpc. I was a few minutes away from ordering the 15W... glad I called them to ask a couple questions.

    ... getting the NVMe for the 15W was already a $350 add. Standard on the 15X.

    A little wary about buying something with so little reviews, but eager at the same time.

    Sweet. According to the early reviews, nothing went wrong with this laptop imo.

    Also, along with the NVMe, I'm assuming keyboard and battery management update too.

    Hopefully less backlight bleeding and better display hinge as well, but we'll see.

    I hope Aero 15X can use Windows Precision or at least Synaptics trackpad. Elan drivers just won't make the cut
