    AFAIK O/C won't get any more in...the V7 models are incoming. As to when that will be /shrug ....there's a few of us impatiently waiting for the release date...hoping for a Ti variant personally.

    Atom80 is the Aorus rep on these boards so may correct me.

    But look Atom80....another potential customer, spill the beans on that release date :p

    Ah ok thanks for the reply. Disappointing no dates and presume no specs yet?

    Selling my MSI next week so don't want to wait too long.

    From Techradar, 9th January:

    This is about the 15.6" X5 machine but I have also posted a similar spec for the X7 before in these forums.

    Not entirely sure of why there's been no more news on either machine since the CES show in January, nor I suspect will we ever know. However, this is what a few of us have been waiting for. There still appears to be too few 1080 laptops on the market and those that are available as of now appear to have problems in one area or another whether it be build quality, screen striping issues, thermal throttling or throttling due to insufficient PSU supply. Ever the optimist, I'm holding out for the v7 Kaby Lake X5 or X7 release to see if Gigabyte/Aorus is serious about taking more of the high end market share by addressing such issues with an outstanding machine.

    Hi,

    Yes there will be replacement with Kabylake CPU, but we don't have accurate ETA on these at the moment. As soon as there is product information and firm delivery schedule we will range on line with OCUK.

    Regards,

    Team AORUS

    Stock landed yesterday :)

    Is that inaccurate enough?

    But on a serious note, we are pushing HQ to see if we can get accurate info on skus and pricing so that we can set up for pre-order...

    Please bare with us.

    Thanks for your impatience, its flattering :)

    Regards,

    Now that IS some news...

    Whilst most of our prodding/impatience was tongue in cheek, announcing/revealing a product line at a major entertainment show then no further news whatsoever for 2 1/2 months does nothing to help the consumer make an informed purchase plan. Most of your competitors released their refreshed Kaby Lake high end models very quickly, which I suppose further compounded our surprise at the 3 month wait for the V7 X5 and X7. I only hope that the Aorus line is/was worth the wait.

    Flattery intended, you have a number of Aorus/Gigabyte supporters here and we have some expectations which we believe you will deliver with this line.

    Hi JimboJet,

    Rest assured you will be rewarded for your patience and "loyalty", we are equally frustrated at the situation, but can do nothing to change it. The news we received today (after chasing R&D and product management) is much the same as we already new, ie circumstances caused by supplier of certain parts that have been re-engineered for this generation. Mechanical parts rather than tech hardware.

    Really sorry we cant deliver better news at this moment, but really do appreciate your "support".

    Regards,

    Atom80

    Hi JimboJet,

    Sorry didn't realise this post was you as well!

    YES our understanding is that the issues reported on the panels have been resolved and quality is now where it needs to be.

    Thankfully our models don't seem to have been affected in UK, and as mentioned before this was something that could have affected any manufacturers units with the 17" 120Hz panel, so we just got luck I guess.

    Regards,

    Atom80

    It does seem that this might be weeks away. Will look at alternatives thanks for the responses everyone

    No worries and yes it does sound weeks away. Let me know what you decide as an alternative.

    Not knowing the configurations also blows....other than the CES marketing spiel...like is there a Ti version when they do arrive.
