    From what I understand is you get both the msata and a sata port. So I do not see a reason why you shouldn't be able you put a regular ssd in there.

    Thanks, I'm glad to know that it should be coming out in the UK. I can't really wait to replace my VAIO SA as it's starting to drag its legs when playing more recent games.

    Don't get me wrong I am a bit disappointed at that price. However the expandability still keeps me leaning this way. The Razer 14 does not even have a second regular drive bay and if you do use the second msata or upgrade the primary you void the warranty. With the P34G I can get much more space. Not to mention that the base Razer price for the 128GB which is pretty useless on a system like this, is still much higher. Honestly I would have to go with the 500Gb just to be usable and now you are around a grand over the P34G.

    If the Razer put a premium screen and a better price on useful storage, it would be a no brainer.

    I am still debating between the two, but I am still leaning a little the P34G way. Hopefully we will see some US prices soon.

    Isn't the screen on the Razer a 1366 TN panel that is pretty crap? That's a deal breaker for me.

    It is indeed TN and crap. I don't know the res.
    I feel the same, I'm only waiting for the P34G/P35K because screens *should* be much better.

    I am hoping the 1080P screen is not far behind, if at all, Not a fan of the TN screen.

    I really wanted to buy this gigabyte, but I can't wait for mid/late september for availability in the US...

    They really screwed themselves with availability dates. Ended up going with the 128gb razer + student discount = ~$1600 bucks. I already own a large mSATA SSD that I can pop in the second bay, so I'm not getting gouged by Razer on the additional storage. I had a chance to see the 14" blade in person, and the screen wasn't *great* but no worse than my current laptop. I always hook up to a monitor for work anyway. That being said, a rather ho-hum display was a hard pill to swallow for the price, I hope there are more options on the market soon for you guys :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Latest e-mail exchange with Gigabyte Support. They've backed off from early, mid-September to late September, early October. [sigh]

    Mine too, I'll be super annoyed if it isn't priced competitively against the razor blade 14". No point in waiting another month if they're going to launch a $2k ultrabook.

    Really is a bummer. I guess the hope is that they are making sure that it is a very good system with no problems.

    One can dream, right?

    One can dream :)

    But a company won't try to make something perfect and lose money at the same time. They should release as soon as possible and start making money but Gigabyte didn't release yet and already missed "back to school".

    Why? I suspect that they have an issue (issues?) with the laptop. I'm pretty sure that this is something related to cooling. Previous Gigabyte's generation was damn hot because of overheating and now they put inside 760M and made it even thinner and cooling system is same as before.

    Have you guys looked at this?, I don't understand absolutely anything more than the number. I converted it with korean won to eur/usd in google and the most expensive it's like 1250 Eur... don't know if prices would be comparable though.

    Really disappointing to see it priced that high. I'm not going to buy it if it's above 1300 USD.
    What about the "999$ for the basic configuration" thing, then?

    Just to update on the European availability, Gigabyte confirmed it should be available in Late September.
