So I felt like giving the Triton 15 some love as I cannot find anything on the newer model with the 8th gen i7 and gtx 1060. I have found one forum post that didn't really say much about it and some older videos from 3 years ago but that's about it. Would be nice if they did a short product overview video or something. So in the weeks to come I'm going to be posing daily about my order progress and at the end do a full video overview of the Triton 15.

Okay...

So I made my order of the Triton 15 on 8/2/2018. The only thing I change from the base config was the RAM, bumped it up to 16 from 8, and no extras or anything else. I opted to pay using the credit service they use and the process for that was very easy. The next day I received an email with my order number so that I can check on the progress through the My Account portion of the website. I know they state 10 to 15 day to ship out order but I figure since it is a laptop that is shouldn't take very long. I know they test out product before shipping as well. It is now 8/6/2018 and the only status is that the payment is processed. I'm hoping to see some movement on it soon. Just would like to enjoy it before my first payment is due.

Updates to follow...

IIRC, Stage 5 is Stress testing... don't rush this stage as it's the one that is, IMO, the most important. Make sure all the ducks are in a row and all the little gremlins are chased out.

Good luck!

I know the stress testing is important. Not complaining about that at all. I’m just being impatient because I recently sold my aging desktop and not I’m falling behind on a lot of games like Fortnite, wow, eve, etc... I should have planned it out better. Crossing my fingers for a Monday ship date and arrival next week. Just would be nice to enjoy it before I have to make my first payment.


FYI: Still at stage 5 phase 2....

Hi and congratulations! I have an old 2015 model Behemoth(DS) laptop. Still going strong . And have SLI 980Ms. Have never really had any issues hardware wise. It's hard being patient(mine took awhile). Once you get it you will love it.

Yeah it is hard being patient. Its for good reason that it takes as long as it does but I have some thoughts. Seems like, as far as laptops go, they could speed up the process some by testing the laptops as they get the from wherever and then just test what changes people make for example I upped the RAM from 8 to 16GB or if someone changes storage options. It not like a desktop where you can swap out CPU or GPU and have a multitude of variables to test. Like I said I'm sure they have good reason for the way they do things and I appreciate the time they put in to make sure each product is the best it can be before it ships.


Still in Stage 5, Phase 2... keeping those fingers crossed for a ship date this week.
