    Well, they need to announce the desktop version of the 1060M first, containing the GP106/107 chip before they get to mobile - it's how it's always done at Nvidia. The 860M was announced very shortly after the GTX 750 Ti, both of which used the GM107 chip.

    We can only hope beyond hope that the GTX 1060M uses GP106. Then it'd be a cool ~100% leap over the GTX 860M, with incredibly low power requirements. We shall see.

    So while I've been waiting I have decided to increase my budget to $1300 (including international shipping costs). And for the time being decided on these 3 laptops with their respective gpu's just in case the pascal equipped laptops dont launch before October and or I need the laptop early for whatever reason. Tell me what you guys think. Thanks! Btw they are all Asus laptops.

    970m all the way, doesn't have a skylake cpu but the 970m demolishes the 960m and is worth the small downgrade in cpu for that model

    Though is the laptop 2 heavy? I will be carrying it to classes but not as often. Each class is around 3 minutes away from any other class.
