just placed my order for Prime 15 cos can no longer wait for UX550, and i think UX550 will be quite expensive.

Looking forward to receiving my first Aftershock product
the zenbook pro is estimated to retail around 1.7k to 1.8k sgd

the prime-15 is over 2k

i think you actually ended up buying the more expensive product. Which is actually no surprise since the Prime cant be cheaper than the zenbook given the Prime's superior GPU.

Normal timing for Prime 15. Don't forget they having the GSS promo for the past few weeks.

I am quite keen on the P-13 with the EPGU Enclosure with GTX cards. On the laptop's Intel Graphics card itself, sure not able to play much game but at time when need to bring out for some use and no gaming requirement, this is a real good option. Might look at my 3rd Aftershock machines sometime later perhaps. Currently owned a XG13 and a Hypergate
Bought the p-13 without graphics card holder. Waiting 1 week for them to finish assemble.

Will opening of the back cover to add ram void the warranty?

If not wrong you can't buy it alone. Must be bought with P13.

looking up the akito node online, there may be firmware/bios compatibility issues, even if the laptop does have TB3

this one really have to bring down to aftershock and test your laptop directly if you want to be safe, as well as consult this

Hmmm. Thanks. So not a single laptop is yet said to be AkiTio verified compatible. The only ones are the mini-pc Gigabyte GB-BKi7HT-7500 & Intel NUC (NUC6i7KYK, NUC6i7KYB).

So P-13 is also not but tested by Aftershock I guess.
