Hey Stephen555! Thanks for the Instagram link!

I was really dubious about the whole Max-Q thing when I first heard about it. I didn't think it was possible to get a big video card into a slim laptop without thermal consequences.

It seems like I was right to be skeptical about the GTX 1080. That card seems to get hot no matter how much you cripple it's performance. The GTX 1070, on the other hand, seems to hit a sweet spot. The performance is excellent and the temperatures are reasonable. The testing also shows that the display is fantastic. If I was in the market for a new laptop today, I would seriously consider getting ASUS Zephyrus 1070 Max Q after reading this review.

As it stands, I'm willing to wait a few months for Volta.

That's news to me. I'd like to read the source you got that from. Would you mind posting a link?

That keyboard without a palm rest looks _really_ uncomfortable. Anyone try it and has an opinion on it?
