    Wonder how it'll look, 1" thin and a 970M.

    Razer blade killer anyone? :rolleyes:

    doubtful, clevo isnt really known for building machines incapable of cooling their components ;) im betting on loooots and lots of copper inside :D

    They just keep getting bigger. W110ER was 11.6". W230Sx was 13.3". Now this is 14". When does the buck stop?

    I'd say its all about weight, just to fill all niches available, in +/- 2kg range we had only W230Sx from Clevo while competition had other, more powerful options like GS60 with 970M. Some people just want lightweight portable gaming machine and P65x was too much for them while 860/960M was not enough.

    I think the machine has been following the maximum performance per watt curve which has shifted to the 970m.

    Pretty sure 650M DDR3 and 765M didn't have the best perf/W in their respective generations

    Was always hoping Clevo would replace the W230 series with a 14". I think as many have noticed, the weight and thickness seem to be more important than screen size. The w230 was great, but ultimately quite thick for it's time when it had to compete with the likes of the Razer and Gigabyte P34.

    Only problem now, is the toss up between the P650RE-G for G-Sync or this and save a bit of weight.

    The ~180 minutes battery quote is a bit worrying as that's worse than the W230SX :/

    It will be nice to have some more option in that 14 inch size, as there really aren't a lot of models that are powerful in that size. The 970m and 32gb will be a welcome addition as well. There are people out there looking for as small as possible, while still packing a punch.

    There are the Aorus X3 and Razer Blade which have had 970M for some time
