    RTX 2080 Max-Q? I am glad I refunded my 2018 one :D.

    Things that are still a concern:

    - No Windows hello mention?
    - That right FN key which everyone mistakes for a right key arrow seems to still be there
    - Confirmation of secondary keys being backlit? Or same as previous version?

    I'll probably wait for the 10nm CPU upgrade before getting a laptop. The 14nm Coffeelake CPU's just run too hot naturally.

    Still the odd up arrow placemat but now with backlit f keys!

    Stills keeps the 8750H processor, 2666mhz RAM and SSD. But adds RTX 2060, RTX 2070 or RTX 2080 (all max-q).

    They will still sell the 1060 model as a budget version.

    They're working on both a 240hz screen as well as a 4k OLED.

    Pricing is:
    1060 - $1599
    2060 - $2,299
    2070 - $2,599
    2080 - $2,999

    I spent $2400 (£1919) on the blade 1070. So pricing is a little spicier as expected.

    If they added secondary key back-lighting, that would be a huge upgrade. I didn't realise how much I missed it as I use my Blade 15, which a lot of the times are in dark rooms.

    Naaw, they won’t change that “fundamental feature” as it was not possible to have both the individually lit keys and display secondary function, at least that was the explanation they provided.

    Apparently the 240hz and OLED are meant as a technical exercise, or is it something reserved for the most expensive 17 incher that they would develop and display in may/jun 2019

    But you got to hand it to them, they really know how to market. Their laptops might not be backed by technical experts or have the QC most other companies deploy, but their laptops are gorgeous and a “hot” ,sexy and technical feat unto themselves.

    There’s some new features beside rtx:
    -Motherboard can support up to 3200 ddr4 ram
    -Double speaker
    -Yes Windows hallo
    -Function keys backlight
    On Ces i heard that they will introduce 240Hz Panel one, even though on web specifications it’s 144Hz, not quite sure about this.
    Complete pricing
