    Actually, I've found most people don't really "do the math" until they are sitting in front of it, and then realize it's just too darned noisy to live with.

    Especially in an office environment with low walls - cubes just shoot that whiny fan noise everywhere.

    They end up keeping it running on lower performance tasks unless they are alone, and then put on their headphones to get away from the noise.

    Those darned laws of thermodynamics fly in the face of the realization of functional and pretty thin gaming laptops.

    Build up those muscles and tote a 17.3" behemoth, it'll game so quietly it'll go unnoticed - just make sure your nearby neighbors have those noisy thin gaming laptops, they'll take all *heat* off of you. :D

    This is why I'd rather just pick an AW13 R3 and use a 130W PSU (rather than 180W, for way less heat and noise, yet almost intact performance). Too thin isn't good

    Intriguing. I'll be watching this guy, along with the X3 and new X5 when it comes.

    This does look interesting. I will be tracking it.

    Just bought it. Will send it back if it has poor build quality or throttles after repasting.

    Looking forward to your review @Eason. I am interested to see how thermals are since it's in a bigger chassis than the Aero 14. Presumably it cools better? We'll see!

    I think that ultimately, though, this model makes the Aero 14 redundant. The body is only a tiny bit bigger, and for it you get a 1" bigger screen. It looks like a very solid competitor to the Razer Blade with it's huge bezels. It's 0.4" wider, but features a screen 1" bigger, right?

    It's a 94Wh battery if newegg's info page is to be believed. Either way as long as it's optimized right, the battery life on it should be pretty nice.
