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.
I don't disagree with human errors being inevitable.

I assumed and expect that the AS staff who attend to my email will do a simple search on the SSD stated before any attempt to response to my queries on compatibility.

But instead it is a template response which really disappoints me, especially as a first time customer. Regardless, I still went ahead and give it a try with AS.

Indeed first slot are more than often defined by vendors to be the storage where the operating system resides. and I did make a special request to AS if they could help me with the installation, but they replied with incompatible thus unable to assist.

1660ti. There is a promo now for 1660ti, so 2070 is 500 dollars more. Not sure if the performance difference is worth that 500 bucks.

Yes! I don't think the performance improvement is worth the $570 extra as I already have a gaming PC with a RTX 2070 Super.

I ordered on the 14th, they said roughly 2 weeks from order to delivery. The screen looked really good in the showroom. I was really impressed by the opto-mechanical keyboard!

Newbie to aftershock laptops

How is aftershock laptops compare to dell?

Basically looking at comparing aftershocks vapor pro to dell g7 series

Need laptop mainly for stable usage - may have to be turned on for long hours - so far dell gaming laptops (eg Inspiron 15 inch now known as G series) heat ventilation still quite good

Vapor pro setup comparable?

So far, compare specs, about same

Pricing also about same

Any comments?

Thanks in advance
