    IIRC since the X3 does not have Gsync, by default it has Optimus?

    Also, did you end up buying the Aero from Xotic? Definitely interested in temps and any throttling concerns.

    Actually, AFAIK, it does have optimus simply by virtue of not having GSync. It's only the 15 and 17 models that don't have Optimus (because they have GSync).

    That does look to be a great deal if you are willing to take the weight increase over the Aero 14.

    Think you're right. Only the X5/7 does not have optimus. but I'm not going ot pay $300 more to get an extra M.2 slot

    For sure, the value over the Aero 14 is definitely questionable, especially when you hear that the Aorus sometimes don't have great build quality.

    I am wondering how the Aorus X3 will compare to the Aero 14 thermally since it is thicker and in theory should be able to cool better.
