new 17 inch model from the same makers of that 15 inch intel collab gaming notebook which locally here was our Aftershock vapour. Full non-maxQ 2070 in that kind of form factor looks really appealing

illegear already has this model as the Selenite Pro on their website, hope aftershock can pick up this model as a Vapour 17 too cos currently their 17 inch offerings IMO are very lacking
lol looks like its finally here in Aftershock as vapor 17 pro

also just realised this model isnt using per-key backlight, strange i thought tongfang had that in their earlier models, wonder why they're still on zone backlight when literally every other major brand has transitioned to per-key

17.3 inch laptop at 2kg, the weight is quite similar to the new MacBook Pro 16 inch

Is it just me or is Aftershock shaving down on Clevo units due to potential ODM part supply issues thanks to the spread of Covid-19 in China?
Note that although Clevo is based in Taichung City, Taiwan ROC, but most of its chassis parts are made in PRC.
If you notice its current Web Catalogue, only FORGE 15 Pro and LUNAR 14 Pro remain on their site. Other FORGE Series, SLATE and NOVA series are all inaccessible from main page except via direct URL now. Majority of available units are either Tongfang-based APEX Series, Intel Design (Vapor Series) or the Aorus-clone Terra Series.

Before someone tries to scream the 'F' word, be reminded that the same part supply chain disruption issue is now afflicting consumer automobile parts supplies with Major Automobile Makers complaining of factory shutdowns over parts supply issues, most of these are from China partners who supply parts that ended up in automobiles that are selling in global markets.

Aftershock has removed the Forge series as of to-date.

Damn! I was actually going to buy the Forge 15Pro....

tongfang itself is also a chinese ODM and i'm pretty sure the vapor and terra are also made in china. clevo just isnt the sole OEM/ODM that it used to be in the industry now that tongfang is also in the business.

2070 is nice, but the charging brick is too huge for me to carry around.

Better now tho with the Nvidia's RTX 2080 is a better card, newer technology and offering better, faster performance than the GTX 1080 Ti. Lower cost comparing both!

Keyboard is different ...pro version doesn’t have numeric keypad at the right side...
If you frequently use spreadsheets ... I would suggest the non-pro version .

mechanical keyboard in a laptop form factor that thin is effectively meaningless, your key travel will probably be so short that it feels not much different from a membrane key with scissor switch

I am looking at vapour pro series due to their 94wh battery. Personally 1660ti graphics is more than enough to play most games.
