    Ok, still collecting budget tho. I do hope next revision have better keyboard and precision mouse (or is there anyway to make precision touchpad permanent even after windows update?)

    I went with the v8 now for a few reasons. The most important thing is that my main laptop is starting to fall apart. I have a big robotics competition in the fall, and I know if I keep that machine, it will wait to fall apart until competition where its absolutely critical that I have it. So, if your computer is on the brink of disaster, its still gonna be worth getting the v8.

    But, lets assume you have a good machine, maybe a desktop or something, and you want to get a new laptop. Current rumors are pretty strong, suggesting the GTX 11 series to be announced Aug 30. These are only the desktop GPUs, and not even the 3rd-party modified ones, more like the 1180 founders edition. People only buy those to strip the heatsink, throw on a water cooling block and OC as much as possible. In Sep/Oct you will get those 3rd party boards with all the fans and silly RGB lights. Thats also around the time you will get the 1170 and 1160, still only desktop cards. It won't be until late nov/dec where you will see any laptops, save for maybe clevo, running the 11-series cards. But even then, the first ones out will be the Clevos, MSI, maybe Alienware, and Lenovo (confirmed themselves). Odds are these computers will be 1 of 2 options, the super thick desktop replacement machines running the 1180 because they can. The second option is some entry to mid level 1160 machines, because they are also fairly thick. Point is, you probably aren't going to see an Aero v9 until early next year. If you do manage to get one by the end of the year, its not going to have a radical redesign. In fact, I would dare say you will see the Aorus running an 1180 before you get an Aero running an 1170.

    All of that speculation of course, but your realistic timeline is Dec-Feb before you see an Aero v9. So do you want to wait that long? Can you wait that long? Does it matter? I generally don't play ubisoft games, and if I do, its not for very long. I don't need 144fps in assassins creed, I need 144fps in Overwatch. Like many people in this thread, I made the realization that I really don't need the 11-series since I've basically given up on the big AAA titles: battlefield/battlefront/assassins creed/farcry. So its up to you, do you have to have the most powerful machine you can find? Then the aero probably isn't even right for you, its got a really bad price/performance ratio because of the portability. You are looking at a 20% max improvement jumping from the 1070 to 1170, although you will probably see a higher jump because it will likely be a full 1170 and not max-q when it first releases.

    Probably a much more convoluted answer than what you wanted, but if you start chasing the next big thing in tech, you will always be disappointed with your purchase. Lastly, don't bank on "all these problems will be fixed" with the next iteration. The v7 had all the same issues as the v8, which surely will have all the same issues as the v9. However, I would definitely be hoping for some precision drivers since thats just a software patch. Don't expect the keyboard to get fixed. Rubber membrane keyboards are fairly new tech, only 20-30 years old or so, so its understandable how its so easy to screw it up. /sarcasm

    Yep, the last paragraph is the one that really makes me hold onto. I wish they could just release a patch driver for precision touchpad and for the keyboard they should have patch it up on v8.

    Hello.
    I want to buy Aero 15X v8 and i have some questions.
    1) What seller are better (XOTIC PC/HIDevolution/GenTech PC/...)? I want to update Thermal Interface Materials for best temperatures.
    2) Are Killer Wireless-AC N1550 or Intel Wireless-AC 9260 is better then Intel Wireless-AC 8265? If yes, what are better?
    3) I want to buy Samsung 970 evo 2tb. Is there any sense to buy an SSD in seller? Or separately?
    4) What are the better memory for laptop? I listen, that Samsung RAM is the better then that any "gaming" Corsair/G skill? etc. It is true?
    5) Are any reviews for models with 4k? Is there any sense yo get 4k?

    I really hope for your help, thank you!
    p.s. sorry for my english

    1) Don't know, never used any of them.

    2) Both the Killer 1550 and the Intel 9260 are the same hardware wise, with the Killer 1550 you can use their QoS software which is not worth it IMO.
    The Intel 9260 is about $23-$27, Killer 1550 is $30, I would go for the Intel 9260.

    3) Its a convenience option, you can let them install the OS to the new SSD and save yourself the time, honestly I would do it myself and save the money.

    4) 2666MHz DDR4 SO-DIMMs with the tightest (lowest) timings, Kingston Impact are the best IMO, 2666MHz @ CL15, you can get the 16GB kit for about $200 or the 32GB kit for about $370, make sure you buy them from somewhere with a good return policy so that in case there are compatibility issues you can return them.

    5) While it'll look good, it doesn't match the hardware, 4K is too much for the GPU to handle, plus you'll be stuck at 60Hz, and lose battery life. The GTX 1070 and the size of the laptop (15") is better suited for 1080p high refresh gaming.

    For anyone here using LM, did that help get your thermals in check? I had HID do my LM, and I have an undervolt of 0.160. In destiny 2 everything was ok for an hour or two, 80-92C, then by the third hour I was locked at 90+C with constant thermal throttling. I am also running a cooling pad that pushes air up. I played Overwatch without the undervolt and it kept thermal throttling as well on ultra settings. My framerate would drop from capped 144 all the way down to 75 in some instances, but generally it would drop to 105-115. I know its a hot machine, but I thought people weren't constantly thermal throttling with an undervolt and LM.
