    I'm very interested in seeing how loud this unit gets when the GPU and CPU is on load, if it's better than the previous versions. Also would like to know the max temps on both GPU and CPU. I hope even on idle or basic tasks it's whisper quiet and doesn't randomly go on.

    This laptop is definitelyon my list. I'm also interested in the Razer v3 is they are making it

    Here's the test to failure of the 777 wing.

    And here's an old Thinkpad crash test commercial. You can see why you want some flex. the less flex there is, the greater the resulting forces (same reason why bungee jumping is safe while hitting concrete is not - the deceleration happens over a greater distance).

    As a structural engineer, the most baffling trend to me has been people buying phones with metal bodies, then wrapping them in a huge case to protect against drops. Just get a phone with a plastic body instead of metal and you don't need a huge case to protect it.

    Idk about other people, but I prefer metal over plastic because it feels more premium to me. Rigidity may not man more strength, but it makes a product feel better to me.

    Though the 970M is actually better, no? The 965M would be cheaper, though

    Thanks for the links! Very interesting. Indeed, couldn't agree more with the phones trend - but customers still tend to perceive metal as solid, reliable, strong.
    My defense of flexing notebook body design was weakened by the fact that there are many bad designs around - here is is one shocking example: look at post #60 and linked photos of cracked screen frame after one month use, Aorus X3 Plus:

    The one that always surprised me was the use of glass in phones.

    Aside from drops, there's two scenarios where I really worry about damaging my laptop:
    1) Crowded trains. I worry about falling or even just leaning against the wall with my laptop backpack on. Not sure some of these really thin designs could take the pressure.
    2) Restaurants. I usually stow my backpack under the table and I sometimes worry about someone accidentally kicking it when they try to get up.

    So impact/pressure to the LCD basically.
