    oke if i was a FPS hardcore gamer i would prefer 120hz 1080p rather than 4k (if all settings must on MAX)
    but you have to accept, 1080p isnt future proof anymore
    4K display's looks far way better with the higher dpi
    and if you are into some design software like me you get more workspace
    yes maybe you wont able to play games in 4k over a couple years but you dont need to play on MAX settings .. we have seen on todays games that the difference in max and high settings is not very noticeable...(instead you are a fps freak)

    and if you want to play MAX settings on 4k you can later install a second mxm gtx1070/80 on the gt73VR for SLI if i am right?
    at least i saw a mxm port on youtube (gentechpc)

    Finally got some free time to play with GT73VR single GTX 1080:

    - Did some overlocking
    - It's G-Sync enabled out of the box for sure
    - It does support Intel GPU graphics with GPU button

    can you test whats the battery life is with Intel GPU just for surfing, light applications, normal use etc... how long hours does it hold im really curious

    and how long will it go with the full use of gtx1080 on battery

    I'm leaning towards the MSI GT73VR 120hz G-Sync with 1070 Nvidia GTX.

    Value for the money, and more than enugh for 120hz gaming. Then next year's upgrade, volta/oled will be a easier pill to swallow,

    almost any know laptop brand has updated their laptop
    only "Alienware" hasnt announced there new laptop with pascal updates
    if we look to alienwares last news they represented

    that is the "alienware 13" with OLED panel (a couple month ago-for sell now)

    that's it!.. if you go to their offical website you cant find any information about the upcoming pascal cards in their laptop
    isnt that weird?

    one of the well know gaming notebook branch didint announced something? after the pascal update?

    are they late?
    or are they hiding something?

    maybe they are working on a 4K 17.3 İnch OLED panel? :rolleyes: (i hope not glossy like the 13)

    or am ı just dreaming*

    I saw your video review of the GT73VR with the 1080. How loud are the fans in person? Would it be distracting to someone watching TV 10 feet away? Also, would there be a difference in cooling with the 1070 vs the 1080?

    I was testing it very late last night and was very quiet, didn't notice the fan at all but I can try again tonight and pay more attention to the noise.
