An interesting caveat to the nVidia mention in the story is that the 1060 3gb part in laptops is not the same as the desktop part. The laptop part is the same chip as the 6gb desktop part but with only 3gb. Kind of like the name implies. 1060 3gb desktop owners got screwed on that one.
It's a shame this laptop wasn't available, or maybe an Intel CPU and AMD GPU version, months ago. I ended up buying a laptop with said 1060 3gb due to lack of options.
