    Ah that makes sense. I like the chassis of the P7xxZm better than the aging P1xxSM-A design. I was kind of surprised when looking for a new system that the P1xxSM-A chassis was almost identical to my P170HM.

    I do think there would be a market for a P7xxZM style chassis with a MXM GPU, but a soldered CPU. Honestly , I've upgraded CPU's after the initial purchase twice in 20 years of building computers, and one of those upgrades was given to me. That's not to say there is no value in a serviceable cpu. In fact, thats the reason I went with Clevo, and I suspect most of us here fit that catagory as well.

    I do hope Clevo keeps the trend up, at least as long as they can. I'm afraid eventually all desktop CPU's will also be soldered. If you know anything about CPU interconnects, you'll realize that eventually sockets will have to go if we want the interconnects between the CPU and the rest of the system to keep speeding up. The pin density will just be too high and the em specs would be insane. Either that or EVERYTHING high speed will have to be integrated on the die/package.

    Does anyone else have the Flexikey/ComboKeys part of the HotKey app crash on them when they hover over the area to change the keyboard backlight color?
    update: these are not updates...they are the same ones that are on my driver installation disc that came with my computer which was created in ~january this year so it should be what is on your system already...don't know why they are showing up as newly updated on sager's site...maybe it was a fluke when updating the site or something

    also, there is an an issue with flexikey on my system (and uninstalled it and reinstalled it a couple of times now)...when I go to into hotkey 3.11.24 and then gaming...flexikey...backlight and hover over the color spectrum, flexikey will crash on any secondary monitor. if you have this issue, too, keep this in mind and just move the app to your primary monitor when you want to tweak this.

    Okay guys I am back and keeping you in the loop with my travel prep journey with the Batman.

    I purchased the Ogio Renegae. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/ogio-re...da63058&ksprof_id=8&ksaffcode=pg69&ksdevice=c

    I have to say as of right now I am very happy with my purchase. The build quality is impressive and the attention to detail is there. Now only time will show if it is as durable as it claims to be. It holds my 15.6 inch batman comfortably in a hanging suspension eggshell type of deal that makes me feel comfortable traveling with a laptop costing a few grand.

    NOW with that being said, I have a QUESTION for you all on a completely separate note: I am trying to figure out if there is a way to set the touch pad to react to multiple finger touches I.E. using two fingers up or down scrolls a web page up or down. Currently my track pad is a single finger touch set up and I am unsure if that is how it is supposed to be.

    Thanks again for all the help guys and I hope my info helps someone else out!

    Well your last comment had some broken English that I think caused some people to stray away, just as this comment has had little effort put into grammar. I'll put more effort into this response than you did into both your comments.

    Realize we are all just owners, prospective buyers, or other people interested; not customer service reps... If you have question that needs to be answered and answered now, go ask a customer service rep at Xotic PC or Mythlogic or any other Clevo reseller/rebrander; don't complain to us.

    But to answer your question, the reason they don't have a 17'' 4K screen is because... they don't; no one does. I actually don't know why, but they don't, and I'm sure there's a good reason. I guess that doesn't really answer your question does it?

    The trackpad has a control panel where you can customise this kind of behaviour. It's always one of the first things I find as I absolutely detest trackpad 'tap to click'. Look in your system tray for an icon that looks like the trackpad or go to Windows Control / Mouse and look for the device settings.

    I must admit that I'm not getting on well with two finger scrolling so far on this computer. It seems really fussy about detecting a two finger scroll and I find it massively frustrating. I've resorted to pairing my old Apple Magic Mouse via Bluetooth and using that with some funky driver I found but that is still problematic too as it keeps randomly disconnecting for minutes at a time.

    Anyone got any tips for mice with side scrolling features?

    I'm shocked that you are having issues with the two finger scrolling. It works flawlessly on my machine. Have you tried to lower the pressure sensitivity? It should work very well. One of the better trackpads I have used on a computer.

    Edit: also glad to see such nice members in the forum. You guys handles that comment much better than I would have. Kudos!

    Also welcome back @ajc9988 now let's get to work making this batman fly ;)

    Nobody is selling a display that doesn't exist. :p At least as far as I understand it, no 17.3" 4K displays at this time.

    It works fine for single finger stuff and I love the size and material, but it just doesn't like my two finger scrolling technique for some reason. I suspect that the problem may be I'm sitting too close to the computer (due to 4k screen and not having 'double glasses' ;)) so my arm tends to come at the trackpad more from the side than the bottom. This results in my two fingers touching the pad orientated more vertically aligned than horizontally. This was never a problem with my Mac, but Batman doesn't seem to like it as much.

    This may not be the cause and I've not spent much time trying to improve it yet.

    [EDIT: just spent a few mins working through the trackpad settings in more detail and have improved it a bit. I think the issue is actually that I hold my fingers too close together as it does actually work if I have them in a vertical alignment. I'll just have to force myself to adjust my technique until muscle memory takes over! The things we go through for our computers.....]

    I've had the system nearly a week so far and that is pretty much the only issue I'm having so far and I'm well aware how minor it is!

    I'll write a more detailed report of my experiences so far over the weekend or next week.
