    I hope they don't make the brain dead decision to include an optical drive. Then the internals will have less cooling volume than the W110ER.

    This is Clevo. Expect at least one brain dead decision per model.

    I'm not sure how they could fit an optical drive into a 13" model if you are going to included a dedicated gfx card... seems like if you want an optical drive and keep things cool you would opt for just using the integrated gpu ala last gen MacBook Pro 13". IMHO, optical drives are becoming less needed due to a bulk of digital downloads largely due to OS's can now be downloaded, or use a flash drive to install. I don't think you'll see them disappear in the 15"+ models anytime soon, but for anything smaller than a 14" I really don't see the point. I do agree that removing the optical drive in favor of a better cooling solution is what the enthusiast crowd wants, but it will really depend on what the mass market wants... and if they want an optical drive in a 13" body, that is what they are gon'na put in it.

    Were they the "flashier" chassis or the same ones with the updated hardware? Any pics? Details?

    Oh well, while I like the W230ST the look of the P375SM ain´t my taste :(.
    I hope that there will a less flashier P370SM :). Since it could be my next notebook after mx X7200 ;).
