    It's always physically possible, you could get a pack that sits in the 2.5" bay and the wires go over but it's just the cost of such a thing to be made. If it's easy and can be a single module I would like to have it as an upgrade option personally.

    @sicily428 photo overload! But you forgot the Gigabyte P34 ;-)

    There's a couple of recent chassis we wanted this option in, but didn't work out. Chassis design needs to take the battery and 2.5 bay into account from the start and then you're looking at potentially higher costs because the larger battery could be unique to that chassis.

    If more companies request this option, as we do, the it will make it to the market!

    Think it was the P34 V4, but as stated it's a Gigabyte chassis - not Clevo.

    Chassis ODM topic is a minefield. Some companies use multiple ODMs and even if you spend a lot of time looking into the topic you'll still not know from which ODM every individual chassis originates.

    I think the 2.5" drive should stay, or be left in as an option for customers, because we still cannot get > 1 TB storage within $100 using just SSDs. And I hardly need mention that M.2 SSDs are still extremely expensive...

    Anyone purchased/received the NP8952 yet? Also should there be a dedicated Owner's Lounge for Sager NP8952 or just join the existing Sager NP8950 Owner's Lounge thread?

    I also doubt it overclocks to 2ghz core and 9008mhz vram like my Clevo Sager gtx 1070 does.

    Max-Q is just another term for hindering to make it colder and smaller in theory.
