    Looks to be a copy of the ASUS Zephyrus. Nothing too impressive on the spec list. Only thing that stands out is that machined aluminum lid. I suspect this aims for the budget segment.

    Available Q3 2018 in USA, and much earlier in China and Korea (This month)

    I don't understand this one. Seems like they miss so many marks in what people want in the thin & light segment.

    The reason the Zephyrus had the keyboard there was for supposedly cooing the GTX 1080 Max Q.

    With the GTX 1060, you'd imagine they could have put the keyboard in proper ergonomic place. Also the thick bezels are not in line with the competition (XPS 15, Gygabyte, and ASUS).

    I don't get it either, there seems to be some irrational need for fancy weird looking notebooks rather than actual good performing ones. Notebooks keep getting thinner and thinner, while getting warmer and warmer. I don't understand the keyboard placement either, neither do I understand the thin bezzels on the side and top and then suddenly under the screen the very thick bezzel, which ruins the estetic completely. From the picture the screen looks absolutely awful, seems like some 25% adobe RGB crap screen.
