    It means nothing. Third party TLC tests shown big potential before failure. I have a zoo of 840/850EVOs - all work just fine.

    Hi to all!

    I'm new in this forum and new with AW computers. Trying to choose between 2 new 15'' configurations and can't make up my mind. Maybe someone can help me to make the right decision :)

    Basically I'm torn apart between these two models:
    1) AW 15'' i7 6700HQ, gtx 1060 or 1070, 1080p 60hz panel and 99wh battery
    2) AW 15'' i7 6700HQ, gtx 1070, 1080p 120hz panel and 99wh battery

    Main thing for me is the battery life, because occasionally need to use it in class and don't want to search for power outlet all the time, 4-5 hours would be superb (word, excel, visual studio, light web browsing etc) :)

    Anyone here owns the new 120hz panel? How it changes battery usage comparing with 60hz panel? How long is delivery times in U.S? I'm from Estonia, but I will order it to my friends address in the states and he will send it to me.
    Sorry for my not so good English!

    Cheers,
    Antero.

    I would suggest the 1st option since you will have Optimus and you can run the system with the intel GPU when needed giving you better battery life.

    Battery life would be similar, though the first will be better.
    If you are a low-mid end gamer go with the 1060, otherwise 1070.

    Hey there, first of all, welcome! I'm also quite new here.

    If I was given a choice between the 2, I'd go for the second one. But, personally, I'd go for a 6820hk, fhd 60Hz, and 1070 combo, since you can plug in an external monitor with high refresh rate. The reason being is because, since kabylake is close to launch, might as well go for a more powerful cpu for further use in the future. Just a little opinion of mine :)

    But seriously, go for the second one.

    Does anyone here have or have ordered the "15.6 inch FHD (1920 x 1080) 120Hz TN+WVA Anti-Glare 400-nits NVIDIA G-SYNC Enabled"?
    I would like to know if it suffers from the strange banding that the QHD 120Hz TN+WVA display on the AW17 R4 suffers from.
