    I have the first Generation and love it. I am hopping they did away with the only plastic part which is the outer rim and change it to some thing more sturdy.

    other than that, i'm excited and im sure the 1060 will do quite well. Hopefully the fan reving is also looked at as well.

    Today is a good day. The black one might be the best spiritual successor to the P34W v5 ever.

    Still no thunderbolt type-C, which can be a letdown. Let's hope they fix the screen wobble that was quite a popular issue around. Regardless, I have high hopes for this machine.

    In all honesty, I've never experienced the wobble issue while typing or using it on a "FLAT" surface. When i use on my lap, it never seemed to be a problem and or wobble to say the least. Quite strong of a hinge.

    I think the thunderbolt thing is quite unfortunate as we are only going to see more potential with it, and perhaps even be a dockign solution.

    So I agree it would be nice to have TB3, but I have been waiting for so long for the specs of this machine with a 1060, awesome battery life and the ability to upgrade it that I still think I will buy it asap. My old laptop is dying fast and I'm ready to throw my money at this new one just cant wait to buy it.

    1 Quick note/question that I thought was weird is that it says its listed with only 1 M2 Drive, where the old model supported 2. Hopefully its just an early mis-print, and with more info coming out it will match the old model, since It should have only been a spec upgrade on the Video Card.

    Anyone @GIGABYTE Laptop can you answer that question? Or know when these should show up to buy at NewEgg or other sites?

    Good news, but I wonder what the pricing will look like.

    Let's hope that the Kaby Lake refresh brings TB3 support.

    Thanks for sharing. This is a very tempting notebook. You can see our review of the first-gen Aero 14 here.

    @D2 Ultima says this notebook may overheat. What is your opinion on that?
