    I currently have P870km1-G with maxed out specs :

    GTX1080 SLI
    i7-7700k
    32gb ram
    1tb ssd
    2tb hdd
    3k 120hz G-sync monitor

    Sure the laptop performance is the top of the top , but i don't know why but I just don't love this laptop. Maybe that's because I've sacrificed portability, premium feeling, design, and world warranty for upgradeability and performance.

    My question is, if i wait for volta or 8th generation cpu, will it be worth the upgrade. I am not only asking about the performance, but more. Such as Build quality, portability, upgradability, unboxing experience. I am kinda willing to have premium experience, instead of regular cardboard box, and waiting to fix my laptop for 3 weeks. Will Aorus deliver that?

    Any current Aorus X7 Dt v6, or V7 users out there or anyone who experienced Aorus customer service please answer this question Thank you!

    I was all for trying them but then I learned that the bottom panel on some of their models is plastic? If they are going for thin and premium they should have an all metal body, bottom line.

    I had X3 plus v1 and it had metal top and the bottom. Also from other reviews, x5 and x7 also has Metal bottom and top. If you could tell me the source of the plastic body, it would be really nice!

    no I think I could possibly be wrong, I thought I had read it in a review of the recent X7 or X5.

    it really depends on how new 8th gen cpu and volta come out, but even it has stunning performance I am not really sure if I should change my laptop.

    You'll have to wait for quite a bit if you want Volta. Plus, it will likely be better to wait for a Volta-specific chassis, not a reuse of an old one

    That is also a good point. If i am going to spend my money on a new machine, I would like to see a new chassis instead of using the old one.
