    Yikes so much red tape. I may just cave and get the laptop now. Plus with NVIDIA Volta coming out I'd have to wait more. Might just build a desktop if I want coffee lake. :cool:

    It's already september, so if you want a 6 core CPU, it's worth waiting for it.
    If you need a laptop RIGHT NOW, and you absolutely can't go without one without undue hardship, then buy the laptop now. I don't know your life situation and everyone's life is different.

    Can still buy a $150/200 Turd. And buy the real deal when it will be released.

    Better contact Donald from Hidevolution and ask him, is it possible to exchange the KabyLake one for Coffeelake if it comes out after receiving your EVOC.

    Blech, I have a bad allergy to BGA.

    Aren't they changing the LGA socket for Coffee lake? Sounds like work.
