    Absolutely, I'm all over it... I have the chap at OCUK on Gigabyte's back though I've not heard anything from them yet. Thing is, mentally, I'm done with this thing. I've pulled the trigger on an Alienware 15.... Most of my previous laptops have been Dell (Latitudes and Precisions) and solid so I'm looking forward to it.

    I will sell the P34 or get it replaced and sell that. In future I will be considerably more cautious when looking at Gigabyte Laptops. What a shame....

    I felt the same way as you about it. Its a shame because I like the concept of a thin and light but powerful laptop to bring with me daily. But it just wasnt durable and stable enough. Hopefully you will have more luck with the AW15 too as I had.

    My thoughts exactly, great on paper but real world use quickly shows it's weaknesses.

    I just noticed you also have an AW15, how do you find it in comparison to the P34 performance-wise. I found one in the Dell Outlet, same spec as yours but with 16GB, 512GB SSD and 1TB 7200RPM storage drive...

    The Gigabyte was only stable for me when I undervolted it and turned all cores down to a max of 26x, still the machine was much louder, less fast than the AW15. The AW15 is bigger but it is able to hold the full turbo boost for 24/7 and I even could overclock the GPU while the fans are less noisy and kept the temperatures always below 80c.

    Awesome, that's pretty much in line with my research but its nice to hear from someone who has had the same machine. I've read about people comfortably overclocking the gpu, have you re-pasted your AW15?

    Anyway, I'm pretty off topic now so I'll probably see you in the AW forums!

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I havent repasted it or modified it in anyway. Didnt even open the machine. It worked well out of the box. See you in the AW forum!

    It is always nice to see the company actually talk with their consumers.
