    Has anyone seen this in person? Looks pretty slick.

    Not sure about availability worldwide. System76 will ship their Galago UltraPro in July, not sure if other US resellers will carry this one yet. If you're in the market for a 13-14" ultrabook and this one is definitely worth looking at.

    Specs:

    4th Generation Intel Core i7-4750HQ Processor ( 2.0GHz 6MB L3 Cache - 4 Cores plus Hyperthreading )
    14.1" 1080p Full High Definition LED Backlit IPS Display with Matte Finish (1920 x 1080)
    Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 with 128 MB eDRAM
    Up to 16 GB 204 pin Dual Channel DDR3 @ 1600 MHz
    1 x mSATA, 1 x 2.5" 9mm Removable SATA II/III
    Multitouch Clickpad with two finger scrolling
    Gigabit LAN (10/100/1000), WiFi
    Intel Centrino, or optional Killer™ Atheros 802.11n
    HDMI, Display Port, Ethernet, 3 x USB 3.0, Headphone Jack, Microphone Jack, SD Reader
    Built-In 1.0 MP High Definition Webcam
    Kensington® Lock
    Suspend and Resume
    53.28 Wh 6 Cell Smart Lithium-Ion

    I must admit this looks pretty interesting, I wonder if that 14.1" FHD panel connects via regular dual channel LVDS cable? Would be cool to upgrade the panel in my work given dell e6430 from HD+ to FHD if possible.

    Wow, nice looking laptop. Curious to see performance of the HD 5200. That actually makes for a nice ultrabook.

    Agreed. I've been waiting for the new Samsung series 9 13" or 15" laptops to refresh but I have a soft spot for Clevo machines.

    One thing it seems to lack is wireless-ac.

    Couple quick things, we will be offering this when it comes out, and like all our models, we will be offering with AC as a default :)

    Is there anything preventing the use of these GT3e equipped processors in other clevos? I wouldn't mind putting one in the new 13" when it hits.

    Yes, the GT3e processors are BGA only and not rPGA so thats why there is only one CPU choice as they are attached at the factory.. Unless you guys want to put in for a BGA machine.. For the low low price of 20K :p
