  1. If you want an in-depth review check out this one...http://forum.notebookreview.com/gaming-software-graphics-cards/745355-aorus-x7-review-htwingnut.html

    As you will see the temps during gaming do get pretty high, which is not surprising considering the thickness

    I think if you want a quality,high-end, thin, 17in semi-mobile gaming laptop, and your not on a budget than the Aorus might be for you. For the equivalent price you could obviously get a much more powerful desktop.

    I personally like Sager gaming laptops; cheaper, easy to upgrade and mod, and good quality
  2. A new generation of Nvidia mobile GPUs have just been released. They deliver more performance per watt, a big advantage in the mobile space. Therefore be wary that the Aorus X7 may be updated to a pair of more powerful graphics cards whilst bringing the heat down. http://anandtech.com/show/7834/nvidia-geforce-800m-lineup-battery-boost

    So December will probably the best timing for me to buy one?

    They currently released the first wave of mobile GPU's (the 800 series). However, the Maxwell architecture is only available on the low-end cards...http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/178351-nvidias-gtx-800m-brings-improved-kepler-and-maxwell-cores-to-mobile-new-battery-boost-driver-to-double-gaming-battery-life

    A great buy if your on a budget. We will likely will not see a high-end Maxwell card to at least december.

    In this context Nvidia has two lines of video cards (or GPU's; GPU is a bit of a misnomer but it has become synonymous with video or graphic card). Desktop (760, 770, 780Ti, etc) and mobile or laptop/notebook video cards, basically anything with an M at the end (850M, 860M, 870M, 880M).

    It can get quite confusing.
