    To clear up any confusion... the Clevo P151EM1 will be the Lotus P150EM on our site. The Clevo P150EM will be the Lotus P150EM-SE. :)

    What does the SE stand for? Special Edition?

    Does the plastic finish look durable? Is it more likely to withstand a bit of wear than the rubbery finish? (I know certain mice have a rubbery finish that eventually rubs off) Also, is the finish on the plastic one shiny or is it more like thinkpads and similar laptops that have a more rugged look?

    hey xotic, i just ran into your youtube channel. really like the videos (would love to see more too. :D)

    do you think you could do a video for an mSATA install on a np9130? i'm probably gonna pick up one of these as soon as ivy bridge launches but i already have an intel 310 ssd laying around.

    Just take the back plate off, right above the CPU fan is a slot that is full sized with the screw already there. Remove screw, install card, install screw to hold it down.. Put the plate back on :)

    Its REALLY pretty easy

    Really!? Awesome! I hope that means mine goes into production soon. I got an email today saying "At this time, because this model is not readily available, we can not process your order."

    Hopefully that will change soon!

    We're hoping to get a full review up on this like you probably saw on the other models we have up there. I'll mention to include the mSATA as its one of the new features. But as Mythlogic mentioned its a pretty easy install.

    that'd be great. i really love the notebook review vids you guys have up your youtube channel. keep pumping those out. since you guys are an online e-tailer, it's nice to have a video source to actually review the products with before we pull the trigger and buy.

    All Clevos are, that's part of the appeal.

    I have a few questions about the Sager NP9130 or any of the Clevo P150EM models. I am specifically looking at the NP9130, not the NP9150.

    1. What is the battery life on these units using the integrated GPU? The reason I am asking is because XoticPC lists the battery life as 2-3 hours while Mythlogic lists it as up to 5 hours. If I can get 4-5 hours out of it using the lowest possible brightness with wi-fi on, that would be great.

    2. When will Ivy Bridge quad core CPU's become available on these units?

    3. Do these units have one hard drive slot, or two? Reason for asking is because the NP6165 seems to have two but I think this one has one.

    4. Is the GPU swappable? For example, in 3-4 years could I change the GPU and put a more modern one in?

    1) With Optimus across the board, battery life should be quite respectable. In the user manual PDF that's around here somewhere it was suggested that it could get 6 hours.
    2) Ivy is now expected to launch on April 23. Previously it was April 29. Expect it somewhere around that time.
    3) As I understand it, 15.6" models have one hard drive slot, plus the optical drive slot, that can be removed and replaced with an HDD caddy. The P models also have an mSATA, although I've forgotten if the W models do as well. 17.3" models on the other hand have 2 HDD slots + ODD + mSATA, IIRC.
    4) The P models (P150EM, P151EM1, P170EM) have an MXM slot GPU, which is user-upgradeable. The W models (W110ER, W150ER, W170ER) have a GPU that is soldered onto the motherboard and cannot be changed.

    I'm sure if I missed something someone will correct me; I don't even have one of the current models, but I've been able to glean a bit of information by hanging around these forums.
