    I'm impressed. I owned a MacBook Pro 15 2013, but this machine is very good.
    I can do light usage without heat or noise, the fans don't completely stop but are very quiet. The build quality is good, very good, the keyboard has no flex in normal usage, just some minor ones with applied strength.


    I ordered from gentechpc and couldn't be more happy with the choice.

    Do you mind posting some temps during idle and temps during heavy use? Is the display nice?

    Also, how long did it take Gentech to get it to you?

    Depends how much traveling you will be doing with the laptop. If it's going to stay home most of the time then definitely go with the 17". If you plan on using it for work or school then maybe stick with the 15".

    It will be staying home most of the time, but I figured on just getting the 15" and a bigger monitor to plug it in to if I wanted something bigger. However if there are no downsides to the 17" other than travel restrictions then I see no reason not to get it.

    If anything there is only upside in your case. The 17" should have better thermals due the larger body.

    Got mine in! Keyboard is fantastic. Temps under benchmarks don't exceed 70C when the GTX 1070 is OC'd with the liquid metal paste upgrade from GenTechPC. ~18,500 gpu firestrike score with OC. Build quality is tops.

    Damn. That's just sick for a laptop that size. Laptop's twice it's size are lucky to stay under 85.

    How loud do the fans get?
