    Now that's one heckuva panel, I was worried I'd have to take a step down from the IPS panel in my W550EU but nope, beats it in every respect. Shame about the battery life though, I hope that gets better with driver and bios updates or heck an extended battery (the 8 cell extended was a typo, there's only 6 cell normal).

    I guess now we see why sellers were saying "it's gonna be expensive", loads of top end goodies :D

    AWESOME LightningPL!

    Are you sure though that it's two mSATA as original leaked specs indicated one mSATA and a mPCI-e. They have the same interface, just wired differently.

    I find the battery life is still one of clevos worrisome flaws, 4h while idling, thats not really good actually. They need to get better engineers 62wh/4 = 15.5w that it consumes on idle, thats supposed to be when on light load

    its a very mobile system afterall, it needs battery life

    What is the Power Supply Wattage?

    And I know the W110ER started with a 4hr battery life, and updated EC and BIOS helped it a bit, out to 5 hours for me at least. Hopefully there was something not considered in the testing. Maybe as simple (and stupid) as not turning off the keyboard backlight. I did that once while running a battery test and then realized, oh $!%!@%.

    HTWingNut yes I'm 100% sure that W230ST have 2x mSATA and mPCI-e. I will tell you more about W230ST today or tomorrow when I will have it in my hands.
    I'll test this little beast deeply :)

    I've some connections to get it faster than normal order will proceed :)
    For sure I'll test ghosting and any other high under load tests. I'll post more info later.
