    Hasn't Nvidia just revealed lower power (or more accurately, lower clocked) 1070 & 1080 mobile parts specifically designed to fit inside thinner laptops like this?

    ..of course such laptops will no doubt cost over £2k but they'd be lovely for mobile gaming at 1080p, 60fps @ max details.

    In the 3DMark Fire Strike test @1,920 x 1,080, DX11, default settings, the results 2 and 3 appear to be in the wrong order:

    Intel Core i7-6700K with EVGA GTX 1080 Cheesecake - 18316
    Razer Blade Stealth with Razer Core (EVGA GTX 1080 Cheesecake) - 9425
    Gigabyte Aero 15 (GTX 1060) - 9532
    Razer Blade (GTX 1060) - 9194

    Hey guys, we've updated the battery results and posted an update on the final page to reflect the new results after updating the Smart Manager software. Here's the full update:

    Update 08/05/2017: Following Gigabyte attempting to repeat our testing and coming up with significantly different results, we have since retested the Aero 15 in PCMark 8 battery test using updated Gigabyte Smart Manager software and discovered an error in our original result of three hours and 28 minutes. This has been updated here to the new, correct result of five hours and 35 minutes, and a couple of comments on the final page have also been altered to reflect the new result. We apologise for this discrepancy.
