    Mine was initially £1566.
    But because I experienced initial issued with the OS and lack of drivers on Asus website and considered returning the laptop, LaptopsDirect offered a £70 refund if I decide to keep the unit. So, technically, I paid £1496.
    Yes, I had to RMA it a month later, but, now, with the replaced motherboard, and nrunning undervolted GPU and CPU at the same time... I'm hoping I can avoid further RMA-ing.

    Btw...I installed and ran Star Wars The Old Republic last night, and fans were quite low.
    CPU reached 64 degrees C (3.3GhZ at 1.05V) and GPU reached 61-63 degrees C (-93mV via MSI afterburner).
    That's on Very high settings btw (didn't see the need to use Ultra as the differences were... non-existent to me, not that either impacted the temps in particular) and I limited the game to 60 FPS (no point in going over the monitor refresh rate).

    Fans ran normally... no different vs browsing and media watching.

    The game doesn't seem to be particularly demanding.

    Star Trek Online however stressed my GPU before... so I'll have to test that with the undervolt. :D

    Well seeing how 1060 is on par with 580 that makes sense.

    This has been brought up in the past a few times in this thread. While it's not the easiest upgrade to perform, inserting the RAM is very doable - I did it, and it only took a couple of minutes. If you look back in this thread you will find at least one video showing such an upgrade, and I have found others on the Internet. Contrary to what you might think, you don't have to insert the top module at the exaggerated angle that we have all come to know and "love".

    The people who I dealt with at HIDevolution assured me that this upgrade could be made without removing the heat sink assembly, and they were right. Just be patient, and it should work just fine.
