    There are 2 entries in the News section on the Clevo website that mention the same phrase

    "Dear customers,

    A complete series of new products, ranging from entry value level to high-end performance. Please come and discover how CLEVO can provide innovative solutions to meet your business needs."

    One is about a new product event that happened in Steigenberger Airport Hotel in Frankfurt on May 2nd and 3rd , 2017 and the other is about Computex in the Nangang Hall, 4F, #L1009a from 30th May. to 3rd June.

    I have also seen mentions of P950HP6. Is something new coming soon? When it will be available from resellers? I am interested in buying something in the range of P650/P670/P750/P775 with GTX 1060 6GB and I really don't want to wait more than 1-2 months. Is there a reason to wait at this point, with the hope of getting a new or an existing improved model or a good price cut?

    I went to that event.
    Can expect N130/N131 - 13" aluminium.
    And P950 should be an alternative to current P6, not a replacement, it will be a new full metal chassis, a bit more expensive i think, actually almost the same price, comparing to the P6 you get Thunderbolt but will need to sacrifice the G-SYNC, so that´s it for you.

    To be honest the only model i will probably get is the N130/131. I still have serious doubts about the P950... i don´t know.

    The only new thing I would like to see coming from Clevo is a HEDT (more than consumer quad core) CPU plus dual-GPU successor to the P570WM and a full metal chassis would be ideal for that. Don't care how big and heavy it is... that just makes it even more awesome. If a 17-inch version of the Tornado F5 with desktop CPU and SLI is coming next, they're going to need something of that caliber to maintain their King of the Hill claim to performance fame.

    My dream machine that's no too out of whack would take the NP9153, get a delid deal with intel for the CPU to come without a heatspreader, do direct die cooling to make the chassis thinner. Then have two heatsinks wrapped around the corners with high quality of fans to cool that and an MXM 1080 on an edge connector (again to keep it thin).

    Get a hardware optimus switch and ditch the 2.5" bays for a trio of M.2 slots.

    Fill the rest with battery and speakers.

    A hybrid to actually offer the form factor of the NP81xx series with the performance and modularity of the NP81xx series.

    I would be nice to see a manual graphics switch like Alienware used to use on their 18-inch SLI beasts. If it allowed for on/off/combo options it could be useful for a number of things, including flashing soft-bricked GPUs or still being able to use a machine with no discrete graphics in the event of a hardware failure would be a good thing, too. It could also be useful in the event that battery life actually matters because Intel has everyone beat on that measurement. It would be especially nice if it did not require a software interface (i.e. BIOS selectable and/or an actual physical switch on the motherboard). It would suck if it could only be switched between protocols by software within a Windows environment.

    You will always get decent bang for your buck on the high end compared to others :)
