    Ah. This's the first time I've heard someone actually confirm having TB in their GL502VM.
    I'm not sure who in Asus made this choice:
    GL702VM has it.
    Some GL502VM have it.
    The more expensive...

    What?
    Why does the laptop reduce powerdraw when the battery is removed?
    The PSU is rated for 180W so it should maintain the same powerdraw minus the additional from the battery.

    Dang.
    Can anyone check the controller for the USB 3.1 Gen 2?
    Alpine Ridge is actually Gen 2 + TB3 in one.*
    I'm hoping that used that chip instead of a Gen 2 only chip. *
