    I wonder where Laptop.bg (LaptopMedia) got the information as google doesn't reveal any hits on "GX501". Otherwise, this looks like a trainwreck waiting to happen.

    I'm pretty sure that with some TDP throttling magic the laptop can hold temps haha

    The GX501 was first unveiled in a ROG event in China when they showed off the GX800 to Chinese market

    Sorry, I just don't get the awesomeness of a haptic trackpad.

    It's distracting enough to use a trackpad let alone have it bouncing and jumping my finger tips over the trackpad surface with haptic vibrations.

    Haptic feedback works ok as a handheld controller, where there is little chance the vibration will interfere with or interrupt my control movements.

    Having the trackpad surface of contact jumping out from under my control just doesn't sound like a good idea.

    Now that the GT83VR trackpad is a removeable part, it makes even less sense for it jump about in its cradle.

    Of all the great innovations in the GT80, dropping the haptic feedback before production was the best idea :)

    I guess it's not a make or break feature for me. I don't like my input devices kicking back at me when I am trying to focus on a task, Anthropomorphizing devices with live feedback isn't helpful for me.

    Besides those devices usually use a lot of power relative to not having them, I'd rather save the power and not have them - I turn such feedback off.

    That's true I guess.


    Each to their own, but I do like the force touch on macbook.
