    Have you found any benchmarks that compare the performance between the 2 mobile versions and their desktop versions, just to see what the actual performance differences are?

    I only know that the 980 is 25-30% faster. The desktop versions are faster anyway.

    Here's a comparison between a mobile 970 and a desktop 970: http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-...eForce-GTX-970

    The guy from the shop meant the 970M might be fine for the next 3 years.

    Have to decide today before 23:59 when the offer is over

    Wow! According to the review above, the 970m is 33% slower than a desktop 970 in Crysis 3. - That's quite significant.

    Chances are the 980m's will be huge piles cheaper when next Gen launches.

    Yes, but that will be probably end of 2016. The Clevo barebones are not gonna change anymore this year, I checked that. I wanted to buy this laptop already since 2 years, so at some point I should buy it, instead of waiting all the time.

    Absolutely. You just gotta make your mind up & decide if the 30% increase in performance can be justified by the Extra "Euro-age". At least you would be almost as fast as a GTX970 Desktop with your 980M Laptop. Decisions decisions huh!?

    Considering that I won't probably play a lot of AAA titles, but more like "oldish" and less power hungry stuff, plus the fact that I don't need to run games in ULTRA settings. And there's also the 380 price difference, which is not negligible.

    Also the laptop will be used for other stuff, as I use it here at work only. My old laptop is now 5 years old, so I wanted to buy a new one anyway, for everything, but gaming will of course be a big plus, doesn't really matter if I can't run the games at full details.

    I saw a comparison now of The Division, ran at lowest settings and at highest settings, the difference was barely visible, only shadows were better, but the rest, imo, was totally not really visible. Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KL0ru8F4ECQ

    I ordered it yesterday, here's the specs:

    Guru STORM Slim

    - 17,3 inch FullHD LED TFT 1920x1080 NonGlare IPS
    - Intel Core i7-6700HQ
    - NVIDIA GeForce GTX970M (6144MB GDDR5)
    - 16 GB DDR4 SO-DIMM 2133MHz HyperX Impact (2x8)
    - 250GB Samsung 850 EVO m.2 SSD
    - 2000GB Samsung Spinpoint 5400rpm HDD
    - Intel Wireless Dual Band-AC 7265 (with Bluetooth)
    - Sound Blaster X-Fi MB5 (Onkyo Speakers + Subwoofer)
    - Backlit Keyboard Swiss/French
    - Dimensions 417(W) x 287(D) x 29.98(H)mm and 3,2kg


    In the end I got 220€ off, 100€ was the offer, 90€ were off the SSD, and also I didn't take the game, that saved me another 30€, and so I finally paid 1684€ without OS.

    For the OS I did the following. I went to a software selling site, bought Windows 7 Professional validation key for 18.90€. Will install that one, and straight away do the free update to Windows 10, which then also gives me the Pro version. A lot of money saved that way. Pro is 150€ here in shops.

    Excellent.

    You finally made a decision at last. I was beginning to think you might go another couple of years before committing.

    Please put a post up in the Hardware section when you have her. It looks fab from what I have seen via the ads.
