    Maybe it's just me, but that mouse seems like the thumb buttons might be awkward to reach for normal hands.

Those upper linear buttons on the Thunder M7 look like they are more in the crook of your thumb, which means far more thumb movement is needed.

    Wtf? Why did they go with a 1080p display for the 17inch and a 1800p display on the 13.9inch???
  4. From what I've read, that's because nobody is producing IGZO displays at the 17" size yet.

    Somehow I doubt Gigabyte laptop quality. I had 2 Gigabyte laptops before, and they died completely within 6 months. I would prefer MSI or Asus.

    Asus' support is awfull. I'm still using drivers made back in 2011. It's not a gaming laptop but still they should update it, when I asked them, they said they don't have plans to update it. As for quality, I had no problem with anything failing hardware wise, just that connectors are worn out easily which is really annoying.
