    Fantastic! Been waiting for them to finally announce the new models. Thanks for the tip!

    EDIT: ugh.. still TB3 and Iris... Was hoping they would implement TB4 for improved bandwidth/latency due to not needing a separate TB controller. As well it's not using Xe graphics. Perhaps it's just a mistake, but it doesn't bode well...

    EDIT2: hmm seems to be using i7-1165G7 according to the Best Buy product page, which has Xe and TB4. $2100? No thanks. For that price I would hope they improved the cooling to use the 28W TDP but I have my doubts due to battery estimates and their proclivity to reuse a lot of the engineering across the whole Gram line.

    Looks like zero changes apart from intel icelake to tiger lake upgrade. Buying discounted current model is a better deal.

    I'd love to have one, but it's too expensive for me.

    These get heavily discounted within 6 months of launch, was going for $1100 on Cotsco few days back.

    That 17Z95N is a weird model with 11th gen Intel but comes with TB3, also with not the new and improved keyboard and bigger trackpad like 2021 Gram 17 17Z90P.

    Looks like the Gram 17 has a small refresh in 2020, the chassis is of old 2020 version whereas the 2021 chassis is different with more ventilation, bigger trackpad, larger key caps with more depth and dual TB4 ports along with DCI P3 gamut screen. Here are the links for both:
