    Yeah I managed to get a hold at somebody at GenTech, they said the CF3 is basicly the CF1 with just more RAM / SSD. So its all good.

    I'm waiting for XOTICPC to cancel my preorder, so I can go ahead and order this one. (Don't want to get charged for two laptops)

    so it's just a preorder for you in the UK?


    Also expect a quite detailed review from me, whenever I receive it.

    Ahh ok well in that case my order should be shipping this Thursday, and with 5 day shipping I might be able to get it by next Wednesday .

    I'll try to get back to you and tell you how the laptop is.
    But only after a marathon session of battlefield 4 :).

    Edit: unit ordered payment processing, hopefully it gets shipped tomorrow.

    Does anyone have any questions I can answer about the laptop when I get it?

    Please let us know is Gigabyte messed up the case as they did with the p35k. I'd personally spray paint the lid as I feel that skin wrap or plastic dip won't cut it quality-wise. But I still have a problem with the chrome bezel as that might be metallic (doubt it though) so it would be more difficult to paint I guess. I'm very much interested in battery life and noise levels as I plan to use it at the university (hence I can't tolerate the yellow lid).
    Hope you'll get it as soon as possible.

    My order just shipped gotta give excaliber some points for that.
    Should get it Friday or Saturday, I'm praying for no dead pixels.

    Edit: would you mask the entire laptop with painting tape and spray paint or take the lid off?

    Given the fact that the chrome bezel goes all the way around the lid I'd guess it is plastic so it could be sanded and sprayed properly, but that implies completely disassembling the hinges and the lid. This should also give you much better control over the quality of the paint job.
    Unfortunately this process would void the warranty so you'll have to use masking tape if you want to stay on the safe side.

    I'll try to see what I can do with the bezel that's the only thing that will annoy me as it reflects back into your eye.

    No, it hasn't.

    From all the videos I've seen about the laptop I've seen the camera guy in the bezel reflection, that's why I said that.

    Edit: Should be getting my laptop Monday.
