Only worries are- No SSD and i7 4720HQ. The 980 is nice. I wonder if the Thunderbolt port is a TB3. Also, they should've removed the DVD drive for lighter weight (and nobody uses one anymore).

I'd say it's an ok deal, but we're 1 month away from Fall sales.

It's Thunderbolt 2 according to the specs of this laptop listed on Amazon (where it sells for $1,479).

980m is still the top mobile GPU and 1080m hasn't even been announced yet. So the prices on laptops with 980m aren't likely to drop much through the rest of the year.

I totally agree with your points about the lack of SSD and the laptop's fatness factor. They should have indeed gotten rid of the DVD drive - 1.7 inches thick is too much these days.

As for the CPU, the 4720HQ actually outperforms the current gen 6700HQ.

there's likely not to be a 1080m

it'll use a straight 1080

even 1060 mobil will be faster than 980m.

I can't decide on the 980 or 1070...the age old question of power vs cost.
