    I like the X5 V6. Sticker shock did me in. It commands a $500 premium over the P35 v6 (4k edition). I can call it a wash on the x5's 3k display (though I prefer the p35x's 4k)--but where does the other $500 of value come from? Keyboard looks slick...but that's maybe a $100 upgrade for me. Last time I bought a laptop I spent 2100 on a 3k gaming rig...and the X5 is even 200 bucks above that.

    I get what Gigabyte is trying to do, but following in Dell's footsteps with Alienware is a stupid idea. So I got the P35X v6 for $1800 instead of the same GPUslightly-lower-resolution-display on the X5 v6 for $2300.

    Just my $.02

    Hi there, I had the P35V6 and wasn't satisfied at all. It went back a few days later. The temperatures and noise were unbearable. >90°C with full speed fan. So there was a lot of throtteling. It's definetly not worth the money.
    Got me a Clevo P650RS instead. Totally satisfied. Same storage options, better sound and cool. Slightly thicker.

    Maybe post that in the appropriate thread? Not the AORUS X5 thread.

    The post above yours mentioned it in comparison to the AORUS this thread is about.

    You post is not relevant to AORUS whatsoever.

    Is the 120hz really worth it on the aorus for gaming? I do some photoshop on the side and im asking if the difference between the IPS and 120hz TN is night and day in terms of color reproduction?

    Hey man. I understand wat u are saying. But the price premium is for a bigger battery better ssd and a better cooling solution. Overall I think it is worth the extra money u pay. And u get gsync too and at 3k res gsync is gonna matter to you.

    I was under impression that the chassis the x5 and p35x use...are the same. So how would the x5 have better cooling? And my SSD is 512, not 128/256. Link to specs comparison?

    The chassis is definitely different. Ssd in p35x is m.2 and in Aorus is nvme.
