    It looks like it only has 1 m.2 storage and for $1700 looks kinda steep in price. I thought closer to $1300. I'll pass on this.

    I'm going to put my order in tomorrow. 4lbs with long battery is great. I had a MSI 14" with 1060 returned it cause the speakers were defective. I'm kinda glad as the MSI PSU is huge and add over 1lb to the carry weight. At least the Aero's PSU is compact and weight less.

    Do you guys think this laptop will have thermal problems?

    None reported on the 970M version so I hope the 1060 will be fine although it does use a bit more power (~30W) but it's on a 16nm instead of 28nm.

    It may, but ask @D2 Ultima - he seems to be the expert.

    Does Razer make good laptops? (I am aware we are speaking about gigabyte).

    It was never going to be close. You should of researched the previous models price was to get an idea of v2 minimum price would of been. Now because you put your own price in your head you've priced yourself out.
    Only laptops I know at that budget are msi. Asus rog and clevo. And they start at 15" minimum.

    Its ok, I already bought a MSI tornado f5 for $1320 and it comes with a 1070.

    I didnt mind the price, it was more of the storage options, only 1 m.2, I mean come on!!, last generation had 2 m.2 options.

    Maybe the internals are bigger in terms of cooling. And I think there's a premium for portability because like you noticed. For what you can pick up for less because it's larger.
    Now that you own that. I can't see no way back for you to want to downgrade from a 1070 to 1060 because you would of been too spoilt lol

    No, so the answer is "No, the Aero won't have thermal problems?"
