      Answer

      This model will be pretty much identical to the other 1080p model they are already selling only with an updated Kaby lake processor. It will not be a g'sync panel. Only, the 1440p model will have g'sync.

      What is the wireless card, Killer 1435 or 1535? And about the RAM, I'm pretty sure this can use 2666 MHz cards, is this correct? 128GB SSD isn't as much as I'd like, so can I add another SSD for the OS? Windows 10 will take almost all of the 128GB.   (1 Answer)

        Answer

        Wireless card will be the Killer 1435. Ram is DDR4 at 2400MHZ but any DDR4 ram will work, yes 2667 will work. You can add another SSD or swap it out. This computer has 2 full size M.2 slots and one half height M.2 along with 1 full sized 2.5 drive bay, so 4 different slots for storage.
