The Gigabyte P35Xv4 is Gigabytes’ previous generation top 15.6″ gaming laptop. It comes with a GTX 980M 8GB, I7-5700HQ Broadwell CPU, 8GB DDR3L RAM, 1080p IPS display and weighs only ~2.3kg.

For a laptop with a GTX 980M it’s a very low price which makes this one a very cost effective gaming laptop, if you can utilize its power. It’s easily the most cost effective, on average, in terms of gaming performance/price, maybe surpassed or matches by laptops with GTX 970M for $1000.

What you won’t get:

  • Cool chassis or low temps of CPU and GPU
  • Good speakers
  • Quiet operation
  • Thunderbolt 3

The GTX 980M delivers around 20-30% higher performance, on average (depends on the game). I would consider this deal carefully, because although tempting, you might prefer, eventually, a laptop with a GTX 970M (or even a 965M!), but more full features or considerably cheaper. A thunderbolt 3 port or some eGPU solution (like Alienware Amplifier) could also be more cost effective and attractive, because remember that in the bottom line, a GTX 970M is a powerful GPU.
