Yeah, eagerly waiting for a review!

Anyone have experience with their Aftershock Vapour series that has 92mWh battery?

Same as Gigabyte Aero 15 series.

don't hope for local impressions since this thing was literally announced a week ago. even if someone in SG already ordered they might not even have collected their unit yet.

that being said it just looks like a Aero 15 competitor. It's aimed at being thin with large battery, and even takes similar cues like omitting a 2.5 inch drive bay and just going for double M.2, although Aero still has numpad and this doesn't.

there is some precedent being set by a relative of the vapour, the Eluktronics Mag 15 which is the exact same machine that was the first to be announced with it (other brands like aftershock only announced theirs now). Whatever intel involvement was, this is by and large a tongfang (same guys who made the Apex) OEM chassis.

Follow jarrodtech on youtube too, they did get a unit of the vapour and will likely have a review vid in near future

I will probably install for myself, I have my concern for aftershock technical knowledge after the below queries.

ME: May I check if the ADATA XPG SXB8200 PRO PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 SSD is compatible and can be installed under the first M.2 SSD Bay of SLATE 15.

AS: We will not be able to change to the Adata spectrix RAMs as the RAMs is only for desktop and for laptops you will need it to be a so-dimm side RAMs

I really hope I do not regret my decision to try AS.

if u ask human to do anything, human error always a possibility

to answer your question, it looks like based on the config page of the slate 15 on the site, both the 1st and 2nd SSD slots work with PCIE NVME, so your SSD shouldn't have any trouble in compatibility.

but the 'first' slot as defined by aftershock always refers to the slot that they use to install the OS on. For this reason when you customise your spec, the first slot always doesn't have a 'none' option to choose. So if you wanna put in your own SSD, and then ask them to install the OS on it, need to confirm with them further are they ok with that.
