Opinions on full desktop replacement
Due to work and lifestyle, only laptops seem to keep me productive. Only having such an option to fit my needs and with my current laptop going on almost 5 years old, figured sometime soon would be a good time to upgrade.

Current setup:

Display: 15.6" FHD 60Hz (1920 x 1080)
CPU: 3rd Generation Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3610Q
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M (1.5GB) GDDR5
RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz
OS Drive: 240gb Intel 520 SSD
Storage Drive: 750GB 7200RPM

Purchased: 2012
Price: $1,800

Recently released high-end laptop (DTR laptop):

Display: 17.3” 3K QHD 120Hz 5ms (2560 x 1440) with G-SYNC
CPU: 6th Generation Intel Skylake i7-6700K
GPU: SLI (2x) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (16GB Total) GDDR5X
RAM: 64GB (2x16GB) DDR4 2400MHz
OS Drive: 512GB Samsung 950Pro NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD
Storage Drive: 1TB 7200RPM

Release Date: 9/8/16
Price: $4,300

Let me know what your opinions are about this updated laptop configuration and if you would rather go with another laptop brand or different system specs.
Also with this being a laptop, what are your views on modded unlocked/overclockable BIOS or just overclocking in general.

Might drop down to 32GB RAM at 2800MHz-3000MHz
Change main SSD to 512GB Samsung SM961 M.2 NVMe 3D-VNAND SSD
Delid CPU with Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra
And get a fully unlocked modded BIOS

Price is around $4,800 with these changes.

system looks not bad.. but i would prefer:

i7 6850K
Corsair Hydro Series H100i v2
Asus X99 Deluxe II
2x 32GB Corsair Vengeance LED White
2x EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW Gaming
2x 6TB WD Black
2x 1TB Samsung 950 Pro
1200w Corsair Professional HX1200i
2x Asus ROG Swift PG27AQ

i bought it already but i don't know, can you spend so much money? (6400€)
but yea you can remove these two monitor and then you are at 5000€
but i'll give you a tip, you don't need ram with 3k 2,4k is ok or 2k or you doing stuff like rendering etc? then go for it!

I am getting a laptop, you just gave all specs of a desktop.
Go back and look at what I listed and notice it is all going to be in a laptop.
And no not much video editing/rendering, but is mainly for pushing benchmarking tests to the limit and overclocking.

But I am now currently holding off because the new Kaby Lake processors, GTX 1080ti cards and Samsung 960Pro SSD's are going to be releasing. So going to see how well those are incorporated into laptops.

Oh didn't saw that :x sorry
But why a laptop ? Cost to much money and has not enough power like a desktop pc with the same price ... :/

Very true, but with work and my lifestyle I am always on the go and hardly in the same location for very long.
Because of this, I have to build a desktop in a laptop case. Pretty much all the parts I am using other than the RAM are desktop-grade components.
I end up having to pay about $800 or more for the same desktop performance but being mobile is my only option.
