    Thanks for posting that email - it proved crucial to me when I called Newegg to find what was going on. Initially their customer service agent said they knew nothing about a recall. When I pressed she escalated to someone behind the scenes who it seems did a google search and found the reddit thread, and interpreted to mean I was OK because it applied to "earlier units" (I ordered the first day.) Finally I read back your Newegg email to them, which still didn't get me any new information but did get me a return authorization.

    She wasn't able to help with my two other questions, which are 1) do the promised IGZO panels exist in any US models and 2) is the keyboard issue fixable (no ctrl + shift + n plus other bottom row keys.) I feel the Aero 15 would be a winner for me with these two fixed for sure, without them I'm back to feeling I'm on the fence with no one model checking all my boxes.

    @iunlock do you have any thoughts on this computer VS the Aorus X7 V6? I know they are two totally different machines but I"m just curious...

    Two very different classes so it's hard to compare.

    Since Aorus is a subsidiary of Gigabyte, I look at Gigabyte as the GM, while Aorus would be their Cadillac...

    If you could get both for the same price would you take the Aorus over the Aero?

    What is your opinion on this Vs the AW15 r3, especially the screens of both? I like the look of the aero 15 but it's more expensive while being less powerful than the Alienware.
