    The 1070 ships with a 180w psu? The Blade ships with a 230 and still has power issues.

    Seems like the i5 option isn't ready yet. Also am curious as to why they're bundling a backpack with all configs.
    EDIT: Looks like maintenance has improved a lot for the m15. After removing the base cover, you're greeted by the heatsink, battery, RAM, etc.

    180w PSU should be sufficient. You will not be overclocking much at all with the thinner form factor which means you are looking at around 45W on CPU and 100W for GPU leaving 35 for everything else which is reasonable. It will be interesting to see what any testing reveals. And how the TB3 controller is plumbed up with PCIe lanes. The current 15 has its x4 for TB3 come right off the CPU which is exciting.

    Design-wise, on the inside, it looks like a heavier duty XPS 15 which is not a terrible thing. The accessibility is awesome and all one could hope for (well, one could hope for 4 screws on each cooling apparatus but alas....)

    8750H uses way more than 45w even without overclocking. I usually get up to around 70w, here's hoping the 8750H's in the m15's are binned better.

    I have my eye on this thing tho. my 15 R4 is pretty good, but it's so damn heavy. Like you can see and read how much it weighs but it's a different story when it comes time to start lugging it all over the place.

    My biggest concern is hearing how loud it gets. Hopefully they are not as high pitched as the Blade 15 fans were.

    I ordered one today. 8750h/1070mq/144hz/16gb/512ssd/90w/silver.

    I paid $1,935 with tax here in the US (this included a one time 15% discount via the arena daily quest game). Estimated delivery is Nov 15. I'll do a review as well.
