    Looks like this thing is supposed to hit Germany at the beginning of October. This site has also already listed it and while the price might be justified if the cooling system actually works well, it still is a bit too high for me to consider it.

    So I checked out the German site and it seems that the base configuration is about $1840 USD and that comes with only a 750 gb HDD, 8 GB of ram, and non-ips FHD display. The model number for that german version is GA-P35K-8G-750G.

    I also found a Korean site that has the P35K for about $1881 but it has a 128 GB msata SSD, a 1 TB 5400 rpm HDD, blue ray combo drive, and a non-ips FHD display. Hopefully the US model has an IPS display for $2000 or less with a 256 GB SSD at least. =(

    Have to note that both the Korean and German version uses Li-ion batteries rather than Li-polymer, which means that it won't degrade as quickly as Li-polymer batteries but won't last as long on a single charge.

    I am little shocked by the price here, I am wondering if anyone had thought about the MSI GS70 Stealth which starts at $1,699.

    It uses 4700HQ, 16GB Ram, 2GB 765 GTX, 128GB SSD, 750GB HD. The downside is that it does not have a optical drive, however it is listed as the "thinnest 17 gaming laptop" with only 5.7 pounds.

    I would have been sold on the MSI GS70 had it been 15 inches. I think at 17 inches, it's a little counter-intuitive for the purposes of portability.

    That being said, there aren't many choices for thin and light gaming laptops with GPUs better than GT750m.

    Got a little more information for Canada/US...

    The P35K will not be available in Canada (doubt the 14 inch model will be either).

    When I asked if there was any information on US pricing, I received this message:

    "Not really. No confirmation really. Its looking like it'll be available Mid-Sept in the US. Once we get further details, we will definitely post on FB. Thank you for asking and showing interest in our P35K."

    So it looks like a mid-Sept release in the US with no pricing set in stone... There is hope yet!

    $1880 USD? Seems like I'm in deals city here:

    [​IMG]

    (pre-order slip)
    $40000 + (5000 deposit) = $45000NTD ~= $1500 USD

    Moreover from what I was told, I am getting an mSata of 256gb... (no mention of it on the slip, but it's omitted because the slip has no place for it.)

    However, I'd say that this huge gap in pricing is uncharacteristic, considering U2442 was $1000~1.1g with SSD just about everywhere it sold.
    Nothing is absolutely final about this product it seems... and I ask the ppl often!

    In other news:
    AHVA panel will have a solid viewing angle of 178 - supposedly it performs on par with IPS at the extreme angles.
    I've asked numerous times for the IPS panel prices and they DON'T exist!

    @omghi2u, did you pre-order in Taiwan? Can you message where you pre-ordered it, I like to buy one too!!
    and the specs includes a mSATA 256GB? and can you confirm if it comes with the thunderbolt port or not?
