    Is there any info on the dimensions and battery life? I'm looking seriously at the NP8230 as well since either size will work fine for me and I think the 1080 screen would be better for the 15.6 anyhow. What's the main appeal of the W230ST over the 8230? other than size?

    I'm sure size/weight are the only benefits of the W230ST. I am hoping that it is also a quieter machine, but we don't know that yet. Aesthetics may also be better.

    Otherwise, the 8230 beats the W230ST on GPU, # of hard drive bays, and value for your dollar (in specs).

    Size and weight. This is true for any laptop. If size or weight doesn't matter to you then you will find plenty of 15.6" notebooks with same/similar hardware as the W230ST and likely for cheaper. But in that regard, you'll likely find a 15.6" with a 770m that costs not much more than one with a 765m so you're better off going that route.

    And I don't expect any official news on this for a couple more weeks. So go away and enjoy something else for a while. Although your posts for passing the time are welcome. :)

    Posting as much of that info as possible here:

    No word on battery life yet because nobody has one and the NDA for details haven't been released yet despite some resellers/builders posting them on their site.

    Well here are the dimensions, I haven't heard news on the battery life but in about an hours time I'm gonna be calling up and asking question. Will keep the thread posted.

    We can surmise battery life. I'll say 4-5 hours unless Clevo actually improves their BIOS and there's no issue with the Optimus graphics switching the GPU completely off.

    I'd guess 3-4 if it's anything like the W110ER.
