    Regarding fan control. If you scroll to the bottom of one of the scan.co.uk listings you'll see: "Fan Tweak: Customized Stability
    Fan Tweak tailors your fan speed to different user scenarios, striking a perfect balance between system stability and needs for tranquility. Under“Customize”mode, you can further adjust the maximum fan speed, embracing the great performance and quiet environment on your own. The 4 modes offer for all-condition tweak options."

    In worse news, the Newegg review now has a note saying that " GIGABYTE's shipment of laptops was delayed due to flooding in Taiwan. Current ETA for shipping is early July". I've not had an update on my estimated shipping date of 24th June since this news appeared.

    Hello,

    I don't have an exact date for you. But production is already underway and shipping is right around the corner, however please note that it will vary by region obviously. Look forward to it. :)

    Thanks for the support.

    Hey guys, I'm weighing my options between the upcoming MSI GS63 and the Gigabyte Aero 14, and the biggest drawback I can see for the Aero 14 is, of course, the lack of Thunderbolt 3.

    This may be a stupid question, but I'm very curious - when it comes to TB3, can they just send out a firmware update that allows TB3 capability, or is it the case that if you buy a laptop without TB3 from the start, you're out of luck?

    It could end up being that I really don't need TB3 anyway, but it would be damn nice to have for things like running VMware through an external SSD.

    Thunderbolt is not software, it is a separate hardware piece.

    It looks like you haven't read the thread (see links in my posts above). The laptop is available in two variants from scan.co.uk with them now expecting delivery of a shipment tomorrow for onward dispatch to customers within the disUnited Kingdom. Thus, I'm anticipating a shipping confirmation in the next couple of days, and arrival by the end of this week or early next week.

    I asked Scan this morning and they seem to not have any idea as to when it will be coming, so thought perhaps there is a supply issue and which is why I asked.
