    Considering it's a 1080p screen, according to Newegg, I would expect battery to be only slightly less than the XPS15 1080p?

    Yeah, though I wish Notebookcheck would review the 1080p 97Wh XPS 15 so we can get an estimate.

    I wouldn't think so, considering a 1050 has a much lower power draw than a 1060. I'd still imagine being able to get a full or almost full workday out of it though.

    It seems like a 4K UHD version should be out in a few months, too...
    Oh well, I'll still be happy with my Aero 14 when it arrives! The good thing is that I bought a well-tested and reviewed laptop!

    Xps 15 monitors are too slow for gaming unfortunately.. I had a free UHD and returned it, had opportunity for free FHD declined it after ghosting research... going aero 14 I believe with a 970m 6gen... (they are my price range sweet spot)

    My theory is that 12 and 14-inch laptops are going to be extinct soon :( I will be writing an opinion article about that soon

    Anyone know what type of display? The specs don't indicate it's an IPS like the Aero 14. Might be TN...

    Looks to be a little narrower footprint than GS63VR, but also a half pound heavier, likely from the bigger battery. Webcam may be a chin cam like the XPS 15. Full array of ports including TB3, ethernet and card reader which is nice. Plus a numpad and macro keys you don't get on the XPS.

    Based on the Newegg pictures, I don't see macro keys. Makes me more anxious to see the X5 V7, which will probably be very similar in price, but with a GTX 1070.

    My mistake on the macro keys- the keyboard is apparently programmable like the Blade, rather than having a row of separate macro keys like the x5. Lost those to the thinner bezels apparently. Definitely still a contender for me if the display is good quality for color, brightness and viewing angles and if the fans are reasonable at idle and moderate load. Would be a shame if they stuck a low quality TN display in this chassis, though arguably better for gaming purists if it's a fast one.
