    LYN why are you reviewing a 4K “premium” unit, when the one that is available in Malaysia is only a full HD unit? So the entire review on display is irrelevant to the ” standard FHD” unit and how could you claimed ” is arguably the standard FHD unit (GTX970M or GTX980M, which one?) is a better choice”? which i assumed you haven’t seen one and it is costing RM 8,999!

    • The review unit is provided by Gigabyte Taiwan, which did not have the Full HD variant available for review. The Malaysian unit features a similar GTX 980M with a less pixel dense display, so do you think it will perform better or worse than this premium 4K model? We’re told that besides the panel, there is virtually nothing that’s different between the 4K and Full HD models.

      What the review also did not cover is the fact that the laptop has a Blu Ray drive, which is swappable for a hard disk bay, bringing the total number of hard disk bays to FOUR for a 15.6-inch laptop.

      If you take a closer look at the specs (GTX 980M, Core i7 Skylake, NVMe SSD, 16GB RAM) not to mention that this is an inch thick and weighs less than most 14-inch laptops, RM8,999 is actually decent compared to other high-end laptops in the market.

      Note: GTX 970M variant retails for RM7,999.
