Full agree. I have been going back and forth with the Razer 14 and this. In the end, both weigh about the same and that matters to me more than the dimensions. The W230st has a lot more to offer other than thinness. Fine by me to game at 1366 x 768 or 1600 x 900 at high settings on the laptop screen. Only downside is when I plug it to a TV or monitor. Quick question, are the new Crucial M5 SSDs any good? I've read reviews but would prefer someone's opinion of them. It's a toss up between this and the Samsung 840. Thanks.
