    Hi Nebulaz,

    That isn't a decision we can actually make on notebookreview's forum, if the machine is already in a service center contact customer support and talk to them regarding this.

    We have an account on this forum to try and answer questions or help customers, as far as direct support you'll still want to contact our customer support directly.

    Thanks,
    GIGABYTE NB

    All versions have an aluminum lid. The problem is that everything is just stuck with adhesive and this adhesive becomes soft from running the machine under full load with the heat rising up and warming up the screen. They need to use a far stronger adhesive.

    I'm curious to know if the improved thermals from Skylake solved the adhesion problem you're referring to.

    Do the improvements in the p34 v5 also translate into the p35x v5? I just purchased one of those, hopefully the build quality is up to par. That was my 1 concern.

    I had a similar defect on the U2442N (ancestor model of v4, late 2012). I fixed it myself by squirting superglue into the gaps where the panel was coming apart. Seems to have done the job so far! Economy fixes 4TW.

    It wasn't answered yet, but I'm quite curious as it will inform my next purchase: Does the P34W v5 have a thunderbolt controller or just USB-C 3.1? the current Aorus X3 v5 doesn't have Thunderbolt, are there plans to include it in the future releases of the aorus x3 line?

    The USB Type C port on the P34W v5 does not have Thunderbolt 3 support, however it does come with an HDMI 2.0 port for 60 Hz output.

    R&D is looking into supporting thunderbolt in the future.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply. I (as well as many others I'm sure) am eagerly awaiting GIGABYTE/Aorus support for TB3 and eGPU devices. It would put your laptops back at the top of my purchase list.
