    True. 900p is good for 14". Not sure if it kills the deal for me though. My current machine has a 7850m and 1080p on 17" and gaming is OK. I just need something small now as my job changed. Sick of carrying it's fat butt around.

    I appreciate the info. I has been a long time since I have looked into running a monitor at non-native resolutions. I guess it may not be as bad as I thought.

    Still wish this thing would release already....

    Thanks for the info. I would still prefer to get a 900p display though. 1080p is uncomfortable for me on a 14-inch screen. Yes, you can run things at a lower resolution, and supposedly it doesn't look too bad, but what's the point of having a 1080p display if you're going to run it in 900p only anyway? Besides, I don't think scaled 900p will look any better than native 900p. The benefits of better brightness and color range will be ruined by blur.

    Anyway...I really hope they don't cut the 900p option. BUT if the 999$ model has both GTX 760M and 1080p, I will not hold back :D

    Well specs say FHD screen is AHVA LCD which is equivalent of IPS screen. That alone overweights 900p screen with regular LCD. I'm very interested now to see how that panel performs.

    A Gigabyte representative from Taiwan HQ confirmed to me that P34G will be coming with Full HD (no 900p version).

    You can check the performance here:
    Test Alienware 14 Notebook - Notebookcheck.com Tests

    It's surely the same AUO panel.

    Well, of course I do not know for sure. It's just: I haven't seen any other FHD 14" screen besides this one. Did you?
    And yes, I think it is the same one which the Clevo w740su uses.

    Well me neither, but I'm no expert at all. Besides, I think this is the second review that mentions the panel on a 14'' AHVA screen.
