    All credit goes to NBR member "do Malho" for finding this little tidbit: http://forum.notebookreview.com/wha...-gaming-worth-compendium-104.html#post9053035

    Basically it looks like we could have a 13" Clevo notebook with the following specs:

    Clevo W230ST
    13.3" 1920x1080 LCD
    Haswell quad-core CPU
    mid-grade nVidia GDDR5 GPU (760m?)
    Backlit Keyboard
    Sound Blaster Cinema Audio

    ETA: July 2013

    Here's to hoping battery life is halfway decent. Not to mention it should sport a 9.5mm 2.5" bay and an mSATA slot. I'm sure it's not going to be in the "thin and light" category. But if it's no thicker than the W110ER I'll be fine with that. Still be a good size and if specs are true awesome performer, in likely less than 5 lbs package. I'm going to assume 120W PSU required. I also hope they offer a quality LCD, with possibly IPS or high viewing angle/gamut/brightness panel as an option at least... and MATTE!

    Now if they can offer that same 13" with an AMD Trinity 2.0 APU with no dedicated GPU and drop the price $400, they'd satisfy a whole LOT of users.

    I like the sound of this!, a 760m gpu would be incredible. following in the W110's 650m wake I suppose (am I right in saying this was ground breaking performance in this form factor, I'm not aware of anything close to it?

    I'd like to see the 1366x768 and the 1920x1080 panel options. I agree fully that high resolution gaming can't be beaten, the more the better, I still miss Battlefield 3 on my Dell U3011 at 2560x1600 it was just stunning in comparison to 1080p!
    I do however find general computer use, programs, and browsing more comfortable at 1366x768. I know I can run 768 on the desktop and 1080 in game but I don't like the interlacing on the desktop - it's never quite good enough, things look slightly furry.................. I'm so picky :p

    Only concern here would be with heat buildup in the smaller chassis. But Clevo is good about addressing heat dissipation.

    It will be intersting if nvidia pull up the bootstraps of its series again.

    Will we get gk107 and 104 refreshes or will the 760 be a cut down gk106 or continue as the top end gk107?

    Im quite interested, maybe it will be the gtx770m....

    This will probably get the improved version of the current 660m witch will be named the 750m.

    Funny, I prefer a higher res for desktop because it's better for multitasking, but lower resolution for gaming because performance is better.

    I do not have a doubt in my mind if this comes out the way I think it will... this baby will be a top seller for Clevo - Sager! :)

    Can anyone resellers take a guess or have any idea what the price point will be?
