    GTX 1080Ti in a laptop! Yup, sounds like a joke. Wccftech also has an article on the same subject now.

    That's how you know it's wrong.

    I can 2nd this recommendation for the Nomad V2 (is there a V3 yet??), the best vendor bag construction I have seen including Alienware bags, and it's got a "form fitting" compartment for the laptop, so it's like a "sleeve".

    Lots of room for other stuff, and a waist belt for when walking / biking at speed so the mass doesn't swing out such that you lose control.

    Great bag, hard to find often, and so usually offered at a premium over list price.

    Not small... not overly large either - the other popular bags are often a bit overboard in size.

    Amazon has it for lower than the highest I have seen it ($240), but not as low as I bought it for long ago ($150), maybe keep an eye out on prices and wait for a new shipment from Asus - that's when stock is high and prices drop briefly. I'd expect another version out at some point too, as it's been almost 2 years as a V2, 3+ years since V1.

    It's kinda pricey, but I was able to sell mine for what I paid for it 18 months later. :)

    Is it just me, or is the Geforce experience like the worst way (often) to experience a game? I was just reminded of why I always uninstall it.

    Hey guys! I noticed since I got the laptop, every time I press the power botton (cold boot) the laptop doesn't turn on immediately. And instead, the light next to the power botton turns back off once then turns back on again. Is this normal?

    That used to happen to me but I haven't noticed it lately. Maybe updating the bios and/or EC firmware fixed it, but I'm not sure.

    @GenTechPC @Kevin@GenTechPC do you guys have measurements on how thick the GT73VR fans are?

    Supposedly it uses the same CPU heatsink as the GT72xx series, so the thickness of the fans should theoretically be the same.

    I have the latest BIOS of 6RF (.10A) and I have the latest EC Firmware of the 7RF (.108), so I don't think that fixes anything. My main concern is, will this cause any major problem in the future? I hear a "click" sound every time it goes off then goes back on. If I were to compare it with a car, it has something to do with the "starter" of the laptop if it has one of those.
