    I asked EVGA for more details on the panel. This was the reply, which seems like good news.

    The 1080 SC17 uses the same panel as the 1070 SC17 with G-Sync; it's a 4K IPS panel manufactured by AUO. Unfortunately I do not have access to the sRGB color gamut figures, and for that I apologize.

    The 1070 version had 100% sRGB (Argyll) and 86.9% AdobeRGB 1998 (per this review), so if this is the same I'm a pretty happy camper.

    I'm not sure I want a 4k screen, I prefer speed and smoothness in my games. I have read that it scales nicely but I would want to try it out before I took the leap to 4K.

    I'll be doing as much time in spreadsheets etc. as games so I want an all-purpose machine, for which this looks great. I'd be happy gaming at 1080p... that's my current resolution, and it's on a 135" projector so I can't even do high Hz or Gsync. I probably don't know what I am missing. :)

    I have read the Adobe products have a hard time with high res though, I need to look in to that.

    Anyway despite the lack of upgradeable CPU and the likely gimped GPU this looks nearly ideal for me.

    This thing looks nice and EVGA makes quality products. Haven't had any issue in my experience with 6 graphics cards, 1 PSU, and 1 Motherboard.

    If my 4th Alienware 17 has problems like the first 3 did then I'm getting a (another actually) refund and buying one of these.

    Same specs, American company, good quality control worth a shot.

    Waiting for a review, but the 240W PSU is a concern. It should perform fine, but the overclocking potential should be limited, especially considering it is marketed as such, i.e unlocked bios, cmos button etc.

    Sent from my crappy phone using my very slow internet in the boonies.

    Despite EVGA's strange power brick. The jack looks very normal pin barrel. May be able to get a 330W aftermarket brick. If Bios is unlocked/"REAL" as they claim, it should just work.

    Want to take bets that their "Real Bios" is just a fancy XTU shell with some RAM support. No meaningful control over legacy, security, or power options:oops::p
