    Ok, as promised.

    Here's my first video on the P35W V2 laptop.



    It's an unboxing and laptop overview video that went on far longer than anticipated but it's all relevant stuff so here's some time indexes to help you.

    @5:02 - Opening the box (yeah, there turned out to be a bit of preamble)
    @9:00 - Dimensions and weight
    @12:56 - Chassis
    @15:15 - 360 Port Tour
    @20:23 - Screen and Keyboard Tour

    More videos to come almost immediately :)

    So I've heard (most recently thanks to vgjfelix) that the power adapter for this is big. I have this the p35w on order but I really need it to be portable and don't want to have to carry around a brick with it. I have a slim universal 120W adapter that I bought for my old laptop. Is 120W enough? I don't know what the rating on the adapter that comes with the p35w is. Can anyone recommend another slim adapter? I know you can get the Razer Blade's 150W adapter but I doubt the tips match.

    Any help is much appreciated

    Thanks for the vid! Do you get nasty backlight bleed like some of the others? What about idle fan noise? :) very much appreciated your review!

    You must be reading my mind because that's the next video I've already filmed, edited and produced! :) Will upload it later today.

    yes the HWmonitor is cool, because it logs your max and mins. For CPU torture you can use Prime95.

    Great video. I really could have used this a few weeks ago. A few observations / quibbles:

    • I think you either need a new scale, or your HDD and ODD are made of lead or gold or something. My P35Wv2 (with no HDD and no ODD) weighs 1.86kg.
    • The little doors on the bottom don't provide access to the SSD slots; you need to take the whole bottom off. Not a big deal, but for the sake of accuracy....
    • Not that you mentioned it in your review, but your tour of the ports reminded me of one thing that is odd. The USB ports are flush mounted, rather than inset like normal ones. This means that USB devices stick out a bit, so if you're used to keeping something plugged in all the time (e.g. a Logitech mouse receiver) and worry about snags and such, it is something to think about.
    • Your trackpad flex may be idiosyncratic to your unit. Mine doesn't do that.
    • Re Alaskajoel's question about light bleed: that seems to be a problem a few posters have, which is a defect particular to a few units, which Gigabyte is fixing under warranty - it's not a design flaw. Mine doesn't have that issue, and most don't.
