I'm not convinced by that first sentence, sleek, unibody design does not scream gaming to me. :kookoo:
To me it is designed for those that want looks and bragging rights about having the latest and greatest, and they can't even get that right.

Right! I'm sure your AAA games won't run at 60fps but ok it does have G-Sync, enjoy your AAA games at around 30fps then!
Might as well buy a console to save some cash!... :p

Wow seems to be too thin to house such power.
I would be interested to see its temperature while gaming

That's why you need G-Sync, cause you won't be hitting 60fps in any recent game at 4k ;)

On the other hand, if this so geared towards enthusiasts, does it come with option of disabling the dGPU in the BIOS?

In that case it sounds like you're not the target demographic for this... There are many 'gaming' and gaudy looking laptops on the market for you to choose from.

This is perfect for working professionals that want the dual duty power for gaming and sleek look to take into a board room for a meeting. Very similar design concept to Razer's Blade series laptops, which seem to be a big hit. I wonder why...

The GTX 1070 is a pretty solid GPU albeit a little limited for it's mobile counterpart for 4K gaming. Especially for a smaller screen you should be able to disable that AA harnessing all sorts of playable FPS for games at that resolution. To add a cherry on top, GSYNC truly enhances that 4K experience for smoother game play.

Yea this would be the main concern of this. I own a 2017 Razer Blade with a GTX 1060 for business traveling and when the fan kicks in you better believe the surrounding passengers next to me on a flight can hear. LOL. Thankfully I have a Nintendo Switch to take along with me now.

With AA maxed... You really gonna run the default AA on such a small screen? Not saying that you're wrong...

A lot of comparisons and misconceptions, c'mon keyboard benchmark warriors, thought we we know better by now that it's all about the context a bigger picture here.

~35fps average then.

Without AA that is..

I own a desktop GTX1070 and that does about 40~50fps average in AAA titles without AA depending on the game @ 4K , this version isn't faster than a OC'd desktop version me thinks.

Same I own an EVGA 1070FTW and i7 6700k on another VR build also on my Samsung 60-inch 4K playing BF1 on ULTRA without AA, i get above that 35FPS average actually. Now to put things into perspective with this mobile GTX 1070 would probably put it in between the two. Now this is with Native 4K, no supersampling or anything.

TBH running 4K on such a small foot print and maximizing the performance probably won't be a fun experience with all that generated heat.

Love the concept, but the overall design is a bit lacking. 1070 and a 4K screen is a bad mixture (Whats wrong with a 1440p?), the overclocking sounds awesome but its in such a small package which means its probably pretty pointless, and it seems like its going to be quite expensive because of all that extra stuff on it (I know you pay for quality, but its more of I feel these features wont be able to do much so paying for a premium laptop thats limited seems pointless).

I love the G-Sync part, laptops that are gaming oriented at all in this day and age really need g-sync or freesync. It really is a saving grace especially in the longevity of the laptop!

I think you got it backwards. The angle here is after you pay an arm and a leg for a product, you're going to like it despite any shortcomings it might have. Just look at iPhones, until 6 you couldn't get a screen above 4", yet everybody (that paid for one) was happy with it.
