    To sum it up:

    So to help you, in case someone is too lazy to read the whole thread, here is a summary:

    Battery: 5h approximately light use minimal brightness

    Heat: under load 82-85 GPU 91CPU (max degrees celsius)

    Noise: inaudible under normal use, 35dB-40dB under load, owners say it is way improved compared to p35k, so my guess is around 35-40dB but it isn't accurate data. Owners say noise is ok.

    Screen: excellent image quality, might not be IPS

    Build quality: good, feels solid, bottom is plastic, top is aluminium

    Easiness to upgrade: RAM very easy 1-2 screws, for the rest you need to take out all screws

    Easiness to change ODD for HDD: incredibly easy, hot swap, just push a button.

    FPS tests: Crysis 3 ultra feels good, you can get decent FPS for Watchdogs in High, almost all modern games playable ultra around 35fps and high 60fps

    That's it. If I forgot something, do not hesitate to say what

    Right now this is the laptop I'm gunning for without question
    I've gone and translated some of the titles of these Korean/Chinese videos and their captions.

    HARDWARE

    Gigabyte P35W V2 Boot Speed Test

    "Takes about 16 seconds to boot to the desktop."


    Gigabyte P35W V2 Power Consumption When Running 3DMARK
    <iframe width='560' height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/hc6WRckYbp0" frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe>
    "P35W V2 power consumption when running 3DMARK falls between 119W to 125W, usually the game will use less power."


    Gigabyte P35W V2 Power Consumption During Standby
    <iframe width='560' height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/k4xoDpqDxHc" frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe>
    "Gigabyte P35W V2 standby power consumption falls near 23 watts."

    Gigabyte P35W V2 Using Shortcut key to Switch Directions
    <iframe width='560' height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/PWWa9P8XYGI" frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe>
    When you press the shortcut keys (F Keys?) on the Gigabyte P35W V2 keyboard when the laptop is in shortcut mode, the top center of the screen displays the various switch statuses as turned on or off, you can let the user know whether the state has the right to switch.

    Gigabyte P35W V2 Battery Charge Indicator and Battery Indicator Button
    <iframe width='560' height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/A7zpl5ye0uY" frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe>
    "Just press the button on the battery charge indicator and the laptop does not turn the battery for usage. P35W V2 notebook battery status indicator." (VERY VERY LOSE TRANSLATION)

    Gigabyte P35W V2 Quick Switching of the Keyboard Backlight
    <iframe width='560' height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/tnseyAHPAds" frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe>
    "Just press the FN + spacebar to quickly switch the backlight, you can choose to (3 settings) turn off, brightness to 50% and brightness to 100%"

    GAMING
    Don't take Lim Hyuntaek's (LH) videos seriously, they use low settings, have a really garbage framerate (via recording software) and do not show the true potential of this laptop.

    Can I see some shots and size comparisons of the laptop itself, anyone from PAX 2014?

    I'm looking forward to some information about this model, particularly GPU performance and temperatures since we can already assume the rest from the P35G v2.

    Would really like to know how this laptop performs as well, been looking at all the MSI models before but am now down to the p35w v2 and p25w v2 (bit bigger, but maybe also better cooling?)!

    Hope i can make an informative decision soon, need one early June.

    Are there any pictures of what this system looks like under the hood? I'd like to know if the mSATA is the special fitted type like MSI is using (GS60 Ghost Pro) or if they're the standard ones.

    I've tried to read up on this laptop and found out that the P35K had problems with heat and therefore alot of noise from the fan. Has Gigabyte done anything to improve the thermaldesign on the P35W?

    Well, they redesigned the fans on the P34G, so I'm hoping that they did the same with the P35s.

    This is probably the one I am going to get also.

    I'm waiting for a few reviews first tho.
