    Specifications: I purchased this Aorus X7 DT V8 last year from HIDEvolution around August 15, 2018. So this machine is still under warranty for another 1 year and 1 month, though it's in 100% perfect condition as far as I know. It was actually sent to me as a review unit, but the performance this BEAST was so great that I had to keep it, so I purchased it from HIDEvolution for $3,094.00 (without 1 TB HDD, I've added). I have since upgraded to an Alienware Area 51m, which is why I am selling this machine.

    This has all of the special HIDEvolution upgrades from cooling to screen upgrades (very little blacklight bleed on this machine), and it comes with liftime technical support from HIDEvolution. All I have to do is email them your name to register the new owner.

    I'm looking to sell it for $2400.

    You can watch my full review of the Aorus X7 DT V8 here.

    It's an extremely impressive machine, and it's still a beast, even today. Easily outclassing most RTX 2080 Max-Q machines, and the CPU performance is incredible for a laptop less than 1" thick. It's actually a fully overclockable CPU and can be OC'd to 4.4 Ghz, though I wasn't able to get stable clocks at that speed. I typically kept it at 4.1 or 4.2 ghz no problem.
