    Now that Pascal laptops are out. The prices are out here in Canada. 2599 for a MSI 1070 laptop. That's like 1200 dollars more for the only worthwhile upgrade....I'm waiting for Volta and my 965m will have to do until then. Unless there are cheaper 1070 laptops

    Clevo and ASUS come to mind. Everyone knows about the MSI tax...

    Clevo has shafted 14" options. The other 14-inchers on the market (besides the GS43VR, which is pricey as hell here) are likely to throttle like hell, and expensive too.

    Why couldn't they re-do the motherboard like they did the P870DM, if the 1060 was 'electrically incompatible', as quoted by @Prema?

    Sigh. Small notebooks and their users always draw the short straw. Have any of you already purchased new Pascal notebooks yet? Hopefully someone with a GS43?

    Did you ever think that maybe Clevo skipped the 14 inch in order to NOT shaft their customers? That maybe they decided the 1060 was too hot for a 14 inch and are waiting for new chips and are planning to launch in October?

    Meaning they are planning to use lower-performance chips? Which, technically, is shafting us nevertheless.

    It's not shafting if they don't run right at the edge of thermal limits...

    I'm not in your *us*.

    1060 is hot. They might have to lower the TDP to put it in the 14" laptop.

    I'm sorry, @Ethrem. I'm just really, really disappointed that the 1060 isn't in a 14" refresh. I think it could've happened, but it didn't. I can't do much about that but wait... two years, as I see it.
    I don't remember saying you were.

    In fact literally everyone else (except possibly @Prototime) around here wants the top-end machines. I cannot afford that kind of performance or size, nor do I want to lug around 5 kg of metal, plastic and silicon.

    Count me in. It's not that we don't get a 1060, it's the possibility of having an overhauled maxwell instead of a desktop pascal in some possible future 1050n which sucks hard.

    If it's a desktop pascal 1050/1050ti and it performs nicely, then I'll be happy, which I really doubt will happen

    Well-said. If the 1050 (or Ti) turns out to be a Maxwell, I'm not sure how I'd react. Knowing nVidia, this is entirely possible. They'd just be overcharging for a 2-year-old chip and I may as well get a notebook with a 970M and OC the hell out of it.
