This laptop is priced cheaper than many gtx 1060 laptops, and FAR cheaper than any other gtx 1070 laptop. When you add in the fact that there is a 10% discount for ANY student (Elementary, College, Ect), and that the upgrade to a 4k panel that still has G-SYNC is ONLY $100, ($90 after student), this laptop has insane value.

Some other "premium" features this laptop has:
2x 2.5" drive slots (1x7mm, 1x9.5mm)
2x m.2 slots (1xPCIe x4)
4x Memory slots
2x USB C
Fingerprint reader
Multicolor backlit keyboard (Probably not individual RGB)
Average weight of 5Lb

I can see no reason to buy anything other than this at the 1.5k price point.

When you add things like
Windows 10 [$141]
16Gb Ram [$138]
256gb SSD [$149]
Totaling $1938

Asus GL502VS-DB71 is $1699
I7-6700HQ
Gtx 1070
16GB DDR4
256GB SSD + 1TB HDD

Much bettee option with a cheaper price

Even the new alienware 15 is much cheaper than this.

I bought a similar, 970m Eurocom model two years ago. I will definitely buy a different brand next time. Eurocom's (Clevo's) screen cover is made of plastic that is too thin and too flexible as a result. When you pick up the laptop from a table with the cover closed using one hand, the screen bends. Eventually, part of the screen on the side stopped working (went black) because a chip at the edge of the screen partially broke off.

I am not sure about this... Quad core and a beefy GPu in a 15 inch laptop that weights 2.59 kg?
Cooling might be a huge problem. Normally laptops are either 17 inch and around 4kg at least or they are small and run waaaay too hot.

Hope I am wrong thou, it does look like a nice deal.

It is so cheap, because it only gets 6900 points in firestrike on default. Which doesn't even come close to desktop GTX 1070 results of 16000. I bought one of these laptops, but now I'm returning it. It has constant power throttling in all my games and I'm quite sick of it. Do not waste your time with this laptop. The build quality is OK, but the software that is supposed to ship with it, is broken. The OC apps are all either broken or half baked. There isn't even a CPU overclocking slider in the OC app, so why bother?Furthermore, the laptop won't allow GPU voltage unlocks, so any GPU overclocking is pretty much out of the window. This is an extremely sneaky product.

There is no way that it can perform at the claimed "desktop GTX 1070 performance". It only has a 230W power adapter and GTX 1070 draw about 200W at load. So think about that for a while.
