I highly, highly recommend not buying any Gigabyte laptops.

I went from having a five year old Sager to a broken Gigabyte laptop (P55W-B1) that I have sent in continually for repairs for the last three years. I have had numerous issues with them honoring the warranty. If there is a faulty video card, they will do everything in their power not to replace, even telling me "There's nothing wrong with this laptop," after holding onto it for a month.

When I sent it in, a single smoke grenade in CS:GO could cause the game to crash to a stuttering halt. The laptop also has insane heating issues owing to poor design. The keyboard feels like the hot surface of a phone after you've played a app game too long. My Sager, while older and broken in the expected ways an outdated laptop should be broken, doesn't heat up as much as that damned Gigabyte.

In fact, my Gigabyte laptop is back at the Gigabyte authorized repair center right now, I am using my now 8 year old Sager as a backup.
Out of the total 2-year global warranty my Gigabyte laptop has had, it's been in the repair shop for 5 months time.
Save yourself a headache, please. Buy the MSI deal instead.
Another good deal but for America only.
Why cant this be shipped internationally?

Question: Does the SSD that comes with this use SATA or PCIe? The description seems to indicate... both, so it's tough to tell.
Another question: Does this support NVIDIA G-Sync?
I'm also assuming that this does not support Thunderbolt 3.
To all who are hating me I never would use a 1070 for gaming infact I am so in to the 4K experience I will get a cheap single 1060/70 and get the 180Ti or get the Titan XP but next year as if all goes to plan the old Titan X shortly after GTX 1080 launch was reduced by PC shops for GTX 1080 price roughly here in the uk but all I mean is that having an overkill GPU with a ahitty screen is pointless just use a cheaper GPU and save on cost and battery life as a cheaper GPU uses less power so you get better battery life in a cheaper laptop
i have a gigabyte p34 that i am very happy with.
SaltyMac How warm does your Asus gl502 GPU get under load? This one seems to reach 80c....just wondering if that was a normal temp.

Thanks! I still can't make up my damn mind! Are you the same saltymac on YouTube with gl502 videos? I would assume so....saw you on there while doing research lol.
twibmassa
yea thats me lmao, i love the hell out of this thing, would recommend it to anyone. as long as youre getting it mostly for gaming, if its more for work or something i would look elsewhere
Hello Everyone,
We have extended this drop out a few days in hopes to hit the final drop point.
Cheers.
SaltyMac I was driving past a Best buy today and decided to stop...the only gaming laptops they had were 2 Asus models and one of them being the GL502. I have to say, that thing is way sexier in person than pictures suggest. The color scheme and solid aluminum? construction dont come across in pics I've seen. Really great looking laptop. I just don't understand why Asus decided to put a gtx1060 only in the 17" model the GL702. I'd be really interested in a 1070 GL702 if it existed.
twibmassa
dang they didnt throw a 1070 in the 17??? that seems like a wasted opportunity. and solid aluminum?? mines like mostly plastic lol. maybe they have different builds on the different gl502 stuff? but i wasnt aware of a solid aluminum one. but whatever laptop you get just make sure you love it. because whatever the cost you will be so much happier if you love it and use the heck out of it!
SaltyMac
Hmmm. It felt like solid metal material....I believe it was last year's gl502 because it had an old nvidia card in it. Yeah I don't know what I want....every one a look at has negatives....but maybe the g752vs....or msi dominator pro... But they are so bulky....and I don't like how you can't replace the internals of the msi laptops because it voids your warranty.
12 bit color? 👀
I have one of these laptops. There is a heat problem when running games. But with the money you save here, you can easily get a good external cooling Pad.
