    I really don't like the keyboard/mouse layout.

    That's how they made it thin with enough cooling to get the 1070 level performance out of the 1080.

    Trying to put the keyboard on top of everything would make it too thick, and the whole design is to be thin.

    MSI did the same with the GT80 series, but in this case it was "relative" thinness, and more to fit the full sized mechanical keyboard.

    What good is an ultra-thin, ultra-portable, crippled and overly expensive laptop if you'll have to carry accessories like a palmrest and LAN dongle around anyhow?
    One could just as well get a proper, uncrippled laptop instead if you're going to need a spacious bag anyway.

    That said, I find the "lifting for more airflow" to be an interesting concept with some potential, although it does look rather fragile on this unit at least.

    Damn nice touchpad design if you don't use a external mouse. Trash being even worse. Maybe as well use a touchscreen. Everything comes to a cost. Smart move from Nvidia.. Fully locked down for vBios mods for the normal graphics so Max-Qrippled don't look too bad in comparison. And yeah, all of you looking forward to Volta. Max-Qrippled with Pascal was only the start shoot for more ugliness from Nvidia.

    That lifted gap open to the interior of the laptop, flush with the table, looks like a magnet for drink spills... that would be a spectacular flame out.

    A drink spill would flush into the fans - blowing all over the inside of the laptop - coating everything with that beverage.

    It might even provide a flying sparks show as it shorted out...yipe!!
