    Hey everyone, I almost pulled the trigger on a $2,500 used Asus Zephyrus. But then i started rethinking it...I can build a Clevo laptop from avadirect equivalent to a desktop.

    I started thinking long term laptop, mxm 3.0 upgradable slot, desktop cpu socket.

    So, im looking at a P750tm1-G , or P775tm1-G, or even possibly a single GPU P870tm-G

    Id utilize a gtx1070 in either model.

    BUT , could I upgrade the 15.6" Clevo P750tm1-G later on to a GTX1080? Will it fit?

    Heres my build so far,

    1080p gsync 120hz panel
    i5 8400 cpu, or a i7 8700.
    DDR4 3000 CL 16
    Raid 0 Samsung 960 evo X2-250gb ssd pci-e
    Gtx 1070 mxm gpu 8g
    AS5 thermal gel

    Id run this setup in either model.

    Ive overclocked countless processors in my life. The non k skus are the best value though.

    But im worried i cannot fit a gtx1080 in the P750tm1-G later down the road if i wanted to upgrade it.

    Can it fit?

    Thankyou for sharing that!

    Any places cheaper than avadirect?

    Anything that the P775 offers over a P750? They look identical.

    There both Z370 chipsets, and TM1G models.

    I hope they keep the same MXM size for future GPU's when volta comes out and what not. Im happy they are the same size. This is fantastic!

    Ive decided to get a Sky X4C, "p751"
    The X4C is by far my favorite model.

    Im going to order from Eurocom. With a additional 10% off student discount. This is what ive decided on for the most part. This thing should be a monster. Ill try and achieve a steady 4.8GHz on the cpu. And as high as possible on the gtx1080. Its 4K, so ill need all the extra fps i can get.

    Z370 SKY X4C laptop 15.6"
    Intel i5 8600K delidded
    + Unlocked bios
    4K IZGO Glossy panel
    GTX1080 8GB mxm 3.1
    2X8GB ddr4 3000mhz
    32gb intel optane pci-e
    1tb 7,200rpm hdd
