    i7 8750h
    GTX 1060 6gb NOT MaxQ
    Chinese FHD panel Looks pretty good actually! Will run it through the Spyder5PRO
    1 x 16gb 2666 memory
    256 nvme samsung
    1tb platter drive
    9560 nic
    70wh battery

    No optimus or G-sync. Can someone explain this? I love this as I can now use fast-sync!

    All of this for $999 lol http://www.microcenter.com/product/507831/OMEN_15-dc0051nr_156_Gaming_Laptop_Computer_-_Black

    Review in the works so stay tuned.

    Looks like a nice config for the price. According to the service manual it will be available CTO with a GTX 1070 MaxQ and 144hz FHD panel at some point.

    Of course I bought it! My channel so far has been self funded for every laptop.

    I’ve already torn it down gone over the cooling system and I must say this has been my favorite laptop of all time at its price and I would have no problem paying up to $1300 for it.

    Looks stunning. Eagerly awaiting the full review.

    Any thoughts on HP’s customer support?

    Not sure on their CS.

    My CS brand experience is minimal, with Eluktronics and Dell mostly. Both been pretty good especially the former.

    I’m between the MSI GP63, GP73, Omen 15, and upcoming Lenovo Y730.

    Hi Bob. I see what appears to be a Thunderbolt 3 logo on the USB-C port. Can you confirm it indeed has TB3? Microcenter's site does not list it. Thank you!

    Ok, I'll answer it myself. Yes! I just picked one up and have my audio working over the TB3 port :)

    I just got mine this morning and I love it!!! I travel 80% and this will allow me to spend some quality time in hotel room after work. I hope it is as reliable as the 6 elitebooks I have had in the family over the past several years.
