That money gets you a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (thin and light) laptop.
Those are really different markets and devices. Yes, you've always been able to get higher performance for less by sacrificing other aspects of the device and build quality. But, ultrabooks aren't really aimed at the dedicated gamer market. And, thin and light is relative. Those "thin and light" gaming notebooks are still 50% heavier with an inch or two increase in pretty much every dimension. And at that price you're looking at a 1080p screen (why do you need a 1070 for that?) vs the 4k screen you're getting in the ultrabook. I would HATE to take those things on business trips or attempt to do work on a plane.

No, especially if for example, the system has G-SYNC: ASUS GL502VS-WS71.

My confusion is why no Taiwan brand has come out with the Intel Core i7-8809G in a standard-size laptop chassis at price competitive with offerings with NVIDIA GPU.
Maybe we will see it, maybe we won't. So far, the Vega GH part is only available on a NUC. I wonder if the GH will ever be seen elsewhere. There was an interview with the Dell guy that said it sounded interesting but main priority was to get it as thin and portable as possible, which is much easier to do on a 50-55W spec XPS 15 2-in-1 is on.

Take for example, ASUS GL502VS-WS71: 4.94 lb, 15.35 x 10.47 x 1.18 in
The new Dell XPS 15 2-in-1: 4.36 lb, 0.63 in, 13.9 x 9.2 x 0.63 in
The augmented HP Spectre x360: 4.59 lb, 14.13 x 9.84 x 0.76 in

The weight difference is exaggerated; 4K resolution on 15.6-in display is debatable.

That one is lighter than most. I pulled a different Asus thin and light and it showed 6lbs, so I wasn't attempting to exaggerate. As I said, these are really aimed at different markets and the build quality difference, especially for the screen, is going to be substantial.

Actual TDP is 230W? Well in that case i do want one. The review still doesnt answer the most important question, WHY EMIB?
230W is the max allowed, according to Toms (including overclocking). As to why EMIB, because they need to get more experience manufacturing products using it since they will be using it on much higher volume products soon.

But it has a stated TDP of 100W?

There’s apparently an image floating around that there is an Intel chip with Vega graphics inside. Yes – that AMD Vega. There’s this little blurry image that makes out the word “VEGA INSIDE”, referencing Intel’s iconic whatever-Inside phrase.

There were rumors that Intel is indeed working with AMD to have Radeon graphics integrated into Intel’s chips, as a replacement for their iGPUs. We do not have any other information about it, but now we have the slightest amount of information available.

Intel VEGA INSIDEFor all we can tell from this image, the Intel chips with “Vega Inside” is presumably for mobile. Other parts of the image are just too small to be seen.








Vega graphics chips are just as good as the car that shared that moniker.

Google might be toying with the idea of a Kaby-G Chromebook. Not sure the point unless they think people will want to run Android games at 4K?
So this is using an Intel baseboard? (Sure sounds like it)

I found in this example here (for atom) that Intel produces a common motherboard and these get used by many Chromebook OEMs.

So If this is an Intel baseboard I do wonder if how many Windows and Linux OEMs (e.g., StationX, System 76, Purism) use it as well?
