    Nice looking laptop.

    Interestingly this new video shows the unit with a matte display:

    If anybody is still interested or have not seen this yet, then...

    http://hexus.net/tech/news/laptop/91667-evga-sc17-gaming-laptop-pre-orders-open-ships-april/

    US$2700... that's a lot... but we're talking about 32 GB of good RAM, a decent NVMe SSD, 4K 17" screen from Sharp (that's a fair contribution to the cost), 8 GB 980m, i6820HK, and a really slim waistline. A laptop of similar size and specs (e.g. Eurocom Sky MX7/Clevo P670) would still be of a similar cost once fully decked out. It'd be more a question of having G-Sync (and a lower cost) v.s. a 4K screen (but not G-Sync).

    P670RG? 17", 6820HK, 980M? The specs of that EVGA are nothing new... what we're looking for is good BIOS and overclockability. And if they somehow succeed well, then if they'd do it with a desktop CPU.

    I love Clevo, but competition is needed, and I don't consider there to be any real competition for any of their product lines, going on specs and cooling and reliability. ASUS might have something, but their terrible RMA hell and their high tendency to give you a broken out-the-gate machine and their generally lower-quality midranged machines means that even if their specs are equivalent on pre-build models on sale on Amazon or newegg that compete with P6xxRE3 models etc, they're still not really that great a choice to buy. MSI's line is generally overpriced in most places one can purchase them since their GT72 launched. Alienware might as well not really exist anymore in terms of reliability and overclockability; still lots of people getting issues where in games their machine will kill their turbo boost and throttle.

    If EVGA wants to bring the thunder, let them. Otherwise they'll be a dime a dozen~

    Only 2x USB 3 ports seems a bit of an error.

    Looks like the whole screen including bezel is matte and uses a Sharp 17" 4K panel - have we seen that panel in any other laptop yet?

    PCPer has reviewed the EVGA SC17.

    An interesting tidbit: the laptop says it is manufactured by GETAC (known for its rugged computer line) in China, rather than one of the laptop ODMs we usually hear about.

    The heatpipe layout looks a bit like its been revised more than once to add more pipes, to spread the heat load from the 980m, so it will be interesting to see how well manages heat and avoids overheating the case, avoids throttling, and/or keeps quieter, than its competitors.

    He agreed with me on the USB ports.

    Also why have space for a second M.2 but not include the connector on the motherboard.
