Agreed, but I'm pretty sure the bezel is a result of it's thickness. They didn't figure out a new way to make components take up less space, they simply grew the laptop in length/width to compensate. So goes my theory, at least.

I have the 17" gaming version of this machine (GS70 Stealth Pro) and they like to throw around that "world's thinnest" tagline a lot. I love the thing and still think it's the best in it's class, but I'll be damned if I can't fit it in most of the 17.3" laptop bags I've tried. It's seriously over-sized.
