      Great proof of concept. If it truly has MX Browns as mentioned in the video, then that's incredible to get those switches in a chassis that slim! And good choice on using a non-clicky switch as well. I tried out the new Razer Blade Pro and the keyboard is horrid! Aside from the fact that I personally don't like clicky switches (my main keyboard at my desk is a Razer DeathStalker Chroma with membrane keys), half of the switches had no tactile or audible response when releasing the key while the other half did, and the actuation force was also very different between keys.

      If you're looking for opinions though, it's not something that I would be interested in. After issues with the GTX 965Ms in SLI on the original X5, I'd prefer a single GPU, and the 17.3" form factor is a bit too large for me. I'd have to try the keyboard to give an opinion there, but my current favorite laptop keyboard (after a couple of hours to get used to the shorter travel) is on the 2016 MacBook Pros. The new butterfly switches have a nice tactile feedback, and although they are clicky, it's nowhere near as bad as a mechanical keyboard with MX Blues.

            nevermind saw wrong
            did look like the support structure could house a extender screen but maybe just the angle makes it look like that.
