Got my laptop in Saturday. Got it all built and am starting to use it and wow, I’m coming from a 2016 laptop so not a fair comparison, but what I’m really impressed by is the build quality. Absolutely beautiful. Such a solid laptop for how thin is it and the fact that it’s modular. It was also incredibly easy to build, with the most finicky part IMO being the Wifi card adaptor. (that was mainly me being scared and not realizing how much force I could use to push down the connector). The parts I brought in (Teamviewer RAM and hynix SSD) are working great and I love that there was an option for me to pick what I put in.
I was worried about the keyboard since I wouldn’t be able to try it in store and it’s really comfortable to type on. There’s a good amount of key travel and the homing nub on F and J are very tactile.
Overall, I’m so thrilled with this laptop and I’m excited to show everyone. My one thing is it’s actually much harder to remove the IO stuff than expected! Which is good for stability, but hard to swap quickly. I’m sure it’ll get easier overtime as I figure out the best way of doing it.
