    This is the kind of panel we have needed, the base needs to be a certain size but 17.3" was too big.

    Very interesting. Looks like it's just the P950 chassis with a new lid (with thinner bezels).

    I'm still hoping for a proper refresh of the internals though. Basically:
    1. Replace the ASMedia USB 3.1 controller with the Thunderbolt 3 Titan Ridge chip (as in the PA70 series)
    2. Add MUX chip (as in the PA70). This is the real gem of Clevo systems which I'm surprised they didn't capitalise on in the P950.
    3. Ditch the 2.5" SATA drive for a larger battery. While 2.5" is handy, it's not an effective use of space anymore now that people have realised you can get 6+ hour run-times out of large batteries in the GS65 and Aero15.
    4. Add a 2nd M.2 slot to counter the above lack of 2.5" slot.
    If they can pull that off, Clevo could really take on the serious contenders in the Aero15/GS65/Blade/AorusX5. Even if it means higher cost (or even just creating a new high end skew of the P950).
    Right now they're simply beaten on all fronts, especially when you consider the heavily throttled GPU in the 1070MQ.

    Where I am, if I spec the P950ER to a similar level as the above competitor, they're all within ~$300 which is well worth it given every one of those has TB3 AND superior battery life to the Clevo.

    I was looking forward to seeing this after hearing about it in this thread. But I didn't think it would be an existing chassis with reduced bezels. Neat, but I'm not too crazy about it.

    It's an odd panel size so is usually at least 2 generations behind in tech.

    What about them? They are expensive and still suffer burn in. High refresh rates are not common with them either.
