    I was disappointed with the removal of thunderbolt port as well. I was there at the computex and actually talked to the product research/development manager, and he said they already implemented the thunderbolt all ready to go (and can change to the TB 2.0 as well if it is just changing the chip). But at the last minute GB redesigned and removed it....I think somehow the marketing team must say not much peripheral devices for TB crap...I mean the people who needs it already have usage for it...

    Ya, I don't get why the P35K is around 1599 euro ($2134 USD) for 16 gb of ram, 128 gb ssd, and 1 tb HDD. The GS70 managed to have about the same config but only charges $1699 USD. This price point for the P35k doesn't even include an IPS display and it is already $2100+.

    The thunderbolt port and the ips panel was a selling point for me but now with no thunderbolt I have to see how good their IPS panel is. If it is not up to par then I have waited for nothing =(

    I don't know german, but are you sure it is not the IPS version? Ram and storage are maxed out.

    It's supposed to be 15.6 IPS (not AHVA). And given it is GB flagship, I'd say a good one?

    Protip: never translate laptop prices from € (EU market) into $ (US market) directly. Examples:
    Lenovo Thinkpad W530:
    EU price: 1900€ (2500$)
    US price: 1600$
    Apple Mac Book retina:
    EU price: 1900€ (2500$)
    US price: 1999$
    Ativ book plus
    EU price: 1450€ (1930$)
    US price: 1300$
    MSI GS70
    EU price: 1700€ (2270$)
    US price: 1699$
    and i only used compare.eu (compares offers from EU shops) and bestbuy.com to compare prices.

    Yes, wnuku is right. Prices for PCs and Laptops are very high here in Germany. GS70 Stealth 1700€ (cheapest!)
    GS70 in the US costs 1300€...
    P35K with max. spec. 1600€ at alternate.de, doubtful if you will get it for this price because its on preorder status right now.
    Nevertheless the P35K is for german circumstances a bargain. A MacBook Pro Retina (also max spec) would cost us over $3700 :eek:

    EDIT
    Just called computeruniverse.net
    The P35K is NOT available until end of September. The stated availability is wrong!

    Thanks for that :)
    I feel much more comfortable waiting for it if it is potentially under $1600.

    Anybody know which US retailers will be carrying this notebook?

    Also has anybody seen any reviews of this (besides the Taiwanese one)?
