    It must be the Clevo W230ST, right? ;)

    What's the deal with the secrecy regarding the new 13.3 laptop? What is it and how likely is it to come out soon?

    Should be it I guess. :)

    Was supposed to be kept confidential.

    Been hearing different news on the release date though.
    One is April, another is July.

    Hoping for April.
    But then again, not sure whether Haswell will be out yet.

    I thought Haswell was not due to be released until June?

    Haswell improves 15% in performance, I dont think its worth waiting.. Ivy is good for now..

    From the last update from Intel, yes it should be around there.

    Just that there's a possibility that the model mentioned will only be out only when Haswell is out.

    So, it's either before or after Haswell waiting game.



    PS : I may be wrong at everything. So take it with a grain of salt. :D

    "W230ST: The W110ER will not be refreshed this year, instead it will be replaced with the W230ST. The W110ER is not discontinued, just won't be refreshed. This model is going to be the most popular one on the market in my opinion. 13.3" 1920x1080 FHD panel. New refreshed nVidia graphics, Sound Blaster Cinema audio, Illuminated keyboard. Sounds like everyone's wish list approval. ETA July"

    from link

    It says July as an ETA, but that could be just a guess. I have a felling it will be quite a thick beast

    I'm pretty excited to see the final specs on this W230ST model, as I am sure many of you are. But I am concerned about the 1920x1080 FHD resolution demanding a pretty beefy GPU. But if anyone can pull it off, Clevo is probably the one to do it.

    I'll be holding out with my 3820tg in the meantime, still performs admirably for it's age. But I do hope my laptop prayer's are answered - portable, good screen, good build quality and enough GPU horsepower to run the latest titles without too much compromise.

    That would be awesome. Hopefully it's not too thick.

    If April, then they would be silly not to wait until June/July. Many Ivy Bridge models were released in March/April before Ivy Bridge was available, but only because Sandy Bridge were backwards compatible with the socket/system so no harm loss. In this case I doubt they'd want to make a board for Ivy only to switch to Haswell a couple months later.
