For 2100 euros... (roughly £1900)
 
At this point i'm wondering if EVGA is purposely trying to sabotage themselves. I am completely and utterly confused.
 
The laptop has a 120hz panel + gsync, 16GB RAM, i7 7700HQ, 256GB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD. But guess what? So does this one for £1300

Not sure what you're trying to do here EVGA but this not 'Intelligent Innovation.' Don't know about the rest of you but i feel like i've waited so long for this laptop only to be trolled on price.

    Like you I was waiting so long for this laptop but the shocking high price for a GTX 1060, was the Deal killer.

    I ended up getting a asus rog zephyrus, but sent it back because I was not happy with the CPU hitting 90c.

    It's not Just EVGA, most of the well known laptops are overpriced.

    The only why these laptop prices will go down are if people like me maybe you stop buying them at such a high price.

    If you were to look at a prebuilt desktop PC in the UK from SCAN for example with only Intel graphics but the same processor that would cost you about 1100 pounds. So for a laptop using a GTX 1060 which costs about 1853 pounds (approximate exchange rate) and a 120 hertz refresh rate is pretty good actually.

    But for a little less money i can get this Asus GL502VS: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-GL502VS-FY385T-15-6-inch-Gaming-Titanium/dp/B073XPHNCT/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1505873439&sr=8-2&keywords=asus+gl502vs
     
    That laptop is the same as the EVGA SC15 spec for spec apart from that it has a GTX 1070 GPU in it. So why would i pay more for a laptop that has a lower spec GPU you in it? Don't get me wrong, i like EVGA stuff and i've bought it for years. I prefer the SC15's keyboard layout too. But the only way i'd buy the SC15 over the Asus GL502VS is if the SC15's price was £100 less than the Asus laptop.

    For real. It's a buyers market and if you are willing to spend £1900, on a GTX 1060 laptop then good for you. But as Ravemaster has shown the HP Omen has pretty much the same spec as the EVGA SC15 but is £500 cheaper. I am sure HP is making a profit on their laptop as well.
     
    So Does it mean that the Aluminium body on the SC15 costs the extra £500?, I doubt it. I would be very surprised if this laptop outsells the HP Omen or other GTX 1060 laptops from MSI, ACER, or ASUS.
     
    I hope EVGA does a quick refresh of the SC15, and sicks a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 MaxQ in it for under £2000. I think many would consider buying that.

    I am still in favor of the SC15.  The keyboard layout makes all the difference to me.

    Agreed, seems a bit too expensive looking at the specs. Maybe they value the design that much?
