    Dang! They really need to get that under control. Did they at least help you get it settled?

    Well the fresh install has done wonders. Command centre works perfectly now. The only issue I have left is the 10c temp difference between cores but I was going to repaste it with kryonaught anyway when I add another SSD

    I usually install windows fresh anyways right out of the box. Just cleaner that way.

    I didn't even ask for help as I have been fixing/upgrading laptops for years. I just wasn't prepared to pay £1800 for a laptop with windows issues and high temps even though I know I could sort it myself. When they dangled the £200 cash to keep it I was more than happy to resolve the issued :)

    I always test a machine thoroughly for issues then do a clean install ( I actually planned on changing the SSD anyway) but the high temps and issues put a sour taste in my mouth and I thought sod it, have it back and I will get one later from the outlet and save a few quid. But the £200 made me change my mind and keep it.

    I've been trying to get my hands on one of these to review. Getting review units it's easy as a Bob. So, what discounts can be applied to get the cost of this down some?

    Thanks for sharing that! Is this with stock thermals or have you done a repaste?

    Can someone post pics? And some comparisons vs other thin laptops for reference if possible ( Razer Blade, Macbook, XPS, etc).

    Thank you.

    BATTERY LIFE TESTS NEEDED

    Can new owners of the m15 (90wh battery) post real and serious battery life (wifi/streaming) test with the combination they have of :
    1060/1070 and fhd/4k screen.
    That would be very helpful for future buyers.

    Thank you
