    Are u serious..? That extra 3.8mm are only the feedstands (the 4 nips on each corner on the bottom) so the laptop is higher above the table for more fresh air. I think if u chop them, laptop is 25mm again with the 980m.

    I dont own one, yet. So i could be wrong

    I've got a bit of a problem. Waiting for the P651SE I ordered to be shipped, however after further discussions with Mysn I understand that Windows 7 (which I have and I would definitely prefer over 8.1) is not actually officially supported for this system. They told me that some specific drivers for this laptop like Touchpad, Hotkey, AirplaneMode, MEI, Wlan (M.2), IRST and IRStart, RAID, Fingerprint reader are not available for Windows 7 (maybe in the future)...

    My question is: did anyone try to use Windows 7 on this laptop? If yes, did you have any issues? Or anyone who can advice me on this - will I be able to actually use Windows 7 or am I likely to run into difficulties?

    So far communication with mysn uk has been very good, during working days they usually answer within 2-3 hours after emailing them, so that's a big plus for them, however this issue with Windows 7 is really worrying me...

    Generally the newer hardware functions better on something it was designed for. Going backwards "may" cause issues that cannot be fixed without support straight from manufacturer. Any particular reason why you think Windows 8 will hold you back when it supports win7 compatibility?

    Unfortunately you're wrong. I just measured : The chassis is ~29mm thick (front and rear) + rubberstands (front 3mm, rear 5mm)
    But anyway, for me the weight is more of a factor

    At first I was thinking like you. But a friend convinced me that there really is no reason to stay away from Win8. I use the classic shell and it feels a lot like 7 but has some nice new features. It runs smooth and stable.
