    There's only one thing missing (or unclarified) on the gigabyte... an IPS screen

    Wow, I'm liking what I see. Looks too good to be true. I'm sure there has to be a problem with the screen quality, cooling performance, throttling, fan noise, or trackpad. There has to be something wrong. ;)

    Well they omitted thunderbolt from this but not the P35K, that's the only thing that sticks out in terms of shortcomings.

    Anyone have an estimate for how long battery life should last, assuming just light web browsing?

    assume a power consumption of 13wh when idle, lets put 15wh given that no flash is involved nor video watching 43/15 = 2.86h

    and thats a good case scenario

    Damn that's a real bummer. That's a potential deal breaker right there. If it was possible to squeeze out at least 4 hours I'd definitely buy this in a heartbeat.

    its is, Im not considering this notebook for nothing, if its cheap enough, I might recommend for people that despite buying an ultraportable dont need battery life (do they exist?)

    I believe 4 hours should be expected on this machine and quite possibly towards the 5 hour area. My gigabyte u2442 is what I believe to be the predecessor of this P34G due to the striking similarity in the chassis, port layouts, dual fan design, and the unique 2nd HDD bay in something so thin. I also read a quick hands on review and it mentioned the screen is a TN screen for this laptop.

    I get about 3.5-4 hrs doing light web browsing and I have the ivy bridge i5-3210m + GT640m combo (47.7Whr battery). Seeing all the Haswell numbers and benchmarks I'm assuming we should see a decent increase over IB

    TN screen huh? Damn, was really hoping for an IPS. If it does indeed get at least 4 hours out of real world use, and the screen is decent, then I'll still consider this laptop. For the time being, I'm awaiting more info on the Acer v7!

    It's not official, but from this site they said:

    " Pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed, but Gigabyte tells us that the P34G could launch in late July for August for between $999 and $1599 depending on region and specifications."

    Cool link.. hadn't seen that video before. Pricing seems very competitive. Late July / August sooo far away though!! Tossing up between this and the Clevo W230ST... Availability could play a big factor for me.

    What are the chances this releases in the U.S. this summer? I'm not very familiar with Gigabyte, where are they usually sold?

    It looks beautiful and would definitely suit my needs. I would buy this in a heartbeat, so slick and great performance. Hopefully battery life turns out to be decent.

    Pricing and design could see a lot of people picking this laptop up IMO. For size it's unmatched by anything in the market.
