    Sorry, I miss typed in my first post. The XMG P507 I meant to state is the P651HP6-G - the Kaby Lake version, not the RP6 whichbis the older Skylake model. You can always swap the 0 for a 1 as the third number, it dictates the chassis material finish.

    The chass itself is readily available in the US, Sager sell it as the NP8156, but not with the 120Hz panel as an option. That's down to what is purchased from Clevo, we ordered chassis with both the 60Hz and 120Hz but some will have only ordered with one of the panel options.

    We do ship world wide, if they aren't available in N. America.

    So how does it work, does Clevo have different panel types like 60hz, 120hz, 4k etc... and the reseller can pick which to supply or do they just have one style?

    Yup, each chassis has a small number of panel options...usually 2 or 3...and when you place orders with Clevo you select the panel in the same way that you select the CPU or GPU in a bga chassis. It gets quite numerous quickly, for example if a chassis has 7700HQ, 7820HK, 1060 gtx, 1070 gtx, 60Hz FHD, 120Hz FHD, 4K, you have 12 possible chassis to chose from and potential order.

    I wish the average Joe could just buy the chassis they want and put the rest in with the parts they want. It actually sounds like a fun endeavor.

    The MSI GE72VR / GE73VR, and it looks like there are a few others now.

    I thought Intel couldn't get the iGPU's running stable at 120hz... that's changed with Skylake / Kabylake :)

    Intel now allows overclocking/third party EDID software. There are plenty of people with Optimus based laptops overclocking their displays well beyond 60Hz and its working fine.

    Yup, it looks like Intel Skylake / Kabylake iGPU's are supporting some 120hz Optimus laptops as well. :)

    It's nice the optimus users have that option now :) It was a weird hole in intel's GPU drivers.

    I agree with you fully. I had a 4k screen on my P750ZM and hated it for these reasons. The only reason I ended up buying it was that the regular screen was on B/O and I needed a new system ASAP so I could take it with me to school in Germany from the United States.

    Don't forget the battery life hit too, the backlight has to work harder to shine through a smaller gap.
