    For me its the shift key... I'm starting to think the keyboard is crap, and there is nothing to be done about it.

    3k$ + for these problems makes me lose hair.

    Sorry to add to your disquiet, but the keyboard does seem to be a weak point of these machines. As in my sig,I've had 3 Aero 15s from different retailers, and all 3 have gone back due to keyboard issues. The first had a "W" key that would ignore inputs, the second had the same issue with the "S" key, and the third (and last for me) arrived with a key cap actually falling off, right out of the box. There are numerous complaints of missed inputs, repeat keystrokes and so on on these forums and elsewhere - don't be fooled into believing it's a firmware issue. Someone made a bad call on keyboard supplier, probably to save a few dollars per unit. Those of us who are unlucky (and some people do have working machines) suffer the results.

    Did anybody try running a monitor through a Thunderbolt3 dock with Display Port? I am wondering if Aero 15 will be able to output signal from Nvidia at 144hz x 1440p through Thunderbolt.

    Have not tried it, but that is well within the spec of thunderbolt 3

    Indeed, it should be. 1440p x 144hz requires something around 15GB/s. Question is: is Nvidia card connected to thunderbolt, or only intel?

    Why one of the M.2 socket support only SSD is due to the limited combination of PCIe lane provided from chipset:

    so it's not the problem of which key the SSD gonna featured, it's the limitation of SATA device supported from chipset
