    Regarding TB3, check out the Aero 15 owners lounge. Seems to be that users are reporting the TB3 is only PCIE2.0 x4, which is roughly 3.0 x 2. That is not the full TB3 speed spec.

    I'd be cautious with any Gigabyte or Aorus offering currently that advertises TB3; at least wait until it has been tested.

    With that said, I would love it if Gigabyte could do an Aero 14 with thin bezels like the 15. The Aorus X3 has thinner bezels than the 14, but it is thicker, so I'm wondering if there simply isn't any more space for that cooling solution to shrink the bezels.

    Keeping an eye out on this one... the form factor, new X-Rite Pantone certified screen, TWO M.2 slots, nice battery life, and a GPU that is good enough for my purposes looks promising! Did wish they move to thinner bezels though

    This one looks like it could be a winner in its category for sure.

    If I did, I don't think those dates have been accurate for a few releases.

    Any idea what price range we could expect this at because this laptop would be perfect for my college laptop if it fits into my budget of 1200 usd.

    Hopefully it will be much lower in the US because at that price we can get a 1070 laptop or the 1060 aero. Anyways comparing the price of the 1060 aero on that site, it's 300 aud more. In the US the 1060 aero retails for 1700 usd in amazon so the 1050 ti should be at least 250 usd less which places it at 1450 usd which is still much above the competition that too for a 1050 ti so hopefully they drop it further. Lots of hopes. Don't let me down gigabyte.
