    An engineer from the gigabyte's service centre explained to me why is the flex on the keyboard. He told me that because the laptop is so thin the keyboard is just a an aluminum plate which is screwed to the chassis with four screws. However, you can see the flex on the keyboard just in the middle of it, where there aren't any screws and that is why you can see the flex there. He also told me that even if they replace the keyboard i will see an important flex in that area.

    It's good to know that it is designed that way in a controlled manner instead of it being a product defect. I'm not a heavy typer so I don't see this being a huge issue for me.

    Awesome video VGJFelix! It's weird what happened with Fn+F5. Maybe it only works when you have two or more monitors connected to the laptop?

    Can anyone else shed some light on this?

    I'm really looking forward to playing around with the laptop myself and figuring out some of it's features.

    I played with this a couple of times today using the HDMI port. I could change to the TV screen and back to laptop screen using Fn+F5. However, after pressing Fn+F5 3 times, both the TV and the laptop screen stayed black. I had to disconnect and reconnect the hdmi cable in order to get some picture on the TV. Then, i changed my settings on the screen configuration and i could use both screens again. I think the issue is related to windows and the configuration and not the function key.

    For anyone still doubtful toward the idea of the 860M beating the 870M, Sebi97 has shared some results.

    After checking the MSI GS60 3k edition it is no longer an option due to the horrible loud fans and the temperature.
    Now um unsure which one to get.

    P34G v2
    + No Numpad
    + touchpad isn't "too far" from the center
    + cheaper
    - no mini display port
    - less storage
    - not completly black

    P35W v2
    + better graphics
    + more storage, 2x mSSD, 2x 2,5" Drives
    + black
    - numpad

    I'm looking at a 1488€ P34G v2 with GTX860m 4GB, 16gig ram, mSSD 240GB Crucial M500, 750GB WD Blue, Intel Wireless AC 7260, No OS
    versus a 1750€ P35W v2 with GTX870m 6GB, 16gig ram, mSSSD 240GB Crucial M500 x2, 750GB WD Blue, Intel Wireless AC 7260, No OS
    I plan a dual boot setup with Mint and Win8. I would get a the notebook from Schenker so these are the XMG C404 / C504.

    I seriously think of getting the P35W v2 just because it is completly black compared to the P34G v2 :(

    Why do you consider the numpad to be a minus? Id say its the exact opposite...
