    The P37X sold in the UK have two 128GB mSATA.
    There's only two mSATA slots in the P37X against three in the Aorus X7 Pro.
    The fourth SATA slot (swappable bay) is 3Gb/s.

    Oops, forgot about the battery life. You are correct, it should be much better with only one GPU. And I would say the same about changing my mind all the time. I kept going back and forth for a while before going with the Aorus X7 Pro. I was going to wait for the P37x, but decided to stop waiting since I didn't know when it was coming out. Of course a week later...

    And I would normally say you should get the 980m one, so that your laptop lasts longer, but if you are holding out til the DX12 based systems come out, that your choice would be the best bet.

    BTW, all GTX 900 series are DirectX 12 compatible. It's merely an API modification.

    Does anyone know if it's going to have a UHD version?

    Doubtful. I don't think any panel manufacturer is making a 17" laptop display at anything greater than 1080p yet.

    That would be a shame, gtx 980m with 8 GB VRAM should be able to handle 4K .......

    I talked to XoticPC yesterday and they said if you want a P37w or P37x it should be a normal 9-16 day wait at this point. I'm still going to wait on reviews of the two units to come out before I make a decision.

    I had to delete a lot of posts in here. Take it to PM if you want to argue.

    The video linked above said the 37X had an IPS screen, and I know the screen in the P35X is an IPS screen (FHD). Have you found something that says otherwise?
