    PCSpecialist offer 3K screen for the P650RS (defiance III), the 1070 seem to have difficulties to run games @ 4K but do you think they will be enough powerfull for 3K gaming?

    I think it can manage gaming at 1440p.

    I'm a bit salty. I ordered the Asus GL502VS from Newegg yesterday around this time. I chose the shipping that would have the laptop at my house on Friday, so I paid extra for shipping. A few hours ago I get my confirmation that they processed the order for shipping and guess what it say's? The item will not be here until Monday. That is pretty garbage. They decided to charge me almost immediately for the item, but wait 24 hour to send it out. So I paid extra for shipping for nothing.

    I contacted customer service and go nowhere. They hid behind the "we have up to a day to pull it" caveat. I even talked to a supervisor. I even caved in and told them it's clear they will not accept responsibility for the deception/laziness and asked if I can pay more to have it here by Friday. NOPE.....lol. The item still has not been picked up, it's still sitting at their warehouse but I cannot expedite shipping further.

    It sucks, but I just will not deal with them anymore. $1700 item and you decide to casually ship it out even though the estimated date was Friday. Monday is the new Friday.

    I'm experiencing this vBIOS restriction. With cooler boost on I'm running around 50s C on GPU now and and with +200mhz offset on core I was getting 1750-1800mhz on the core. It seems to sit around 1780 most of the time. I'll keep testing and adding more to the core until I hit instability.

    This is exactly why I stay away from newegg. Go amazon prime, they will never let you down; if anything they get it to you earlier than promised.

    Bro I feel your pains. I am also an impatient mofo as well. My local microcenter had the strix 1070 laptop in stock and I ordered one. I have a few days to pick it up and decide but it's reserved and mine. This way I can decide to spend the extra $150. If thermals aren't an issue and I read good things I'll be possibly swapping my gt62. So far I am really liking the GT62 though. Amazing temps. Super silent. I mean dead silent on stock fans. Seems to be overclocking nicely and Gsync works a treat and I was able to get a whole 63hz out of her lol. The laptop is also extremely cool. Even after gaming for a few hours it's remains cool to the touch in all the places it matters. Only issue I've noticed is my space bar when hit an angle can sometimes fail to resisted which can be highly annoying when typing. Maybe it's just my model? Bad unit?

    That does suck. I've had no issue with Amazon. You should try them next time. I've even had them refund me the difference if the price of the laptop drops within a couple weeks of ordering it. Fairly good experience.

    I'm a big Amazon customer and at my new house my ups and fedex drivers come early AM which is great. Amazon customer service is best in the game. I sold an iPad to them after my company provided me with an iPad Air 2, they denied it and sent me the wrong one back. I called them up and immediately was issued the full price of the trade in and told to keep the iPad they sent me which turned out to be a gen newer with LTE. I sold that on CL and a week later my original iPad arrived which I was also told to keep. Unreal service.

    But saving taxes on these laptops can add up quickly.

    My initial post, which you replied to, was about how the VS (VY) is not the same as the VM (VT). There were people here being a bid misled by ASUS's marketing photos thinking it is the same chassis, which is why I posted. The VS/VY is fatter and heavier than the VM/VT. If you thought I meant the VS is not the same as the VY, then that's not what I was talking about :)

    And all of them are apparently heavier than ASUS claims if notebookcheck has a good weighing scale :)
