    I'm in gamedev, so chunky compiles and lighting builds. I'm definitely waiting to see how these review. If they stack up well and don't have any thermal issues I'm probably selling my desktop and moving to one of these.

    Same rule applies, that wont drive gaming external graphics.

    May be tempted, but I will wait for the reviews first.

    We currently have no plans to release a Ryzen/NVIDIA combo gaming laptop. I'm not privy to the exact reasons why unfortunately.

    Doh, ok thanks Tom, much appreciate the reply - I'd imagine AMD wanting Ryzen/AMD Graphics combos

    Any idea if you will release a vega / Ryzen laptop ? That would then have pretty decent graphics :)

    Bit-Tech have done a mini review / preview of the r1600 model and gaming performance is looking decent. Basically in line with a 7700/GTX1060.

    Even if the performance isn't anything to write home about (as in it doesn't redefine gaming performance in its price bracket), it is nice to FINALLY have some competition in the sector.

    Yeah for sure, I'm just glad there is finally 8 core laptops, content creators have been screaming for this for a decade.

    However, iv only the budget to spend big the once and I'm not sure the graphics card is good enough for me as I'll be driving a 4k monitor with it.

    My perfect end all laptop would be this cpu or Zen 2 8core with at least 1080ti level graphics, I'd rather spend 2-2.3k on that than 1.6k on this, as I'm spending thousands already.

    I'm considering SFF pc as well, if I'm on the road in my van, I can then remote desktop in to it from my laptop I have now if I need power and I'm hooked into leccy.... Otherwise I can just use the laptop when on battery

    The lack of GPU is certainly a issue I can see some people having. As you mention I would happily have one of these laptops (well the r1700) if it came with a GPU that could match the 1070/1080 (so basically a r1700 / 1080 combo... :p).

    Capping out at 1060 performance is a major opportunity missed.
