    I was just on the phone telling my wife about the experience with Gigabyte and she even said wonder what it would be like if you had an actual issue. Disappointing because the price was good and was impressed with out of the box performance on Bob's stream last night.

    I did the 512 since it wasn't much more than what I can buy online (30ish bucks). Figured it was worth it so that I can load a game or two and test the machine. If I like it, I'll add a 1tb ssd to it to hold my games. Only downside is it'll be a lottery of what drive I get I imagine, but oh well.

    Almost bought a base model razer blade 15 and fortunately I saw your review before placing the order. Thank you for the great posts!
    Now I placed an order for the Alienware m15 just like you did. The service manual shows a lot of good things about the alienware, and the only thing I don't like judging from the pictures is the SHINY BEZELS... Those glaring plastics just feel cheap. Hope some after market stickers could fix the look.

    Same! Hate those shiny bezels. I actually debating not ordering it due to those but figured I'd get used to them in short order. Just hope it runs better than the Blade. Grats on your order!

    What performance improvement do you get from a GTX 1060 OC than the standard GTX 1060?
    Really wish it had the GTX 2xxx series GPU’S but I’m sure we will see them at some point.
