    for me it doesnt make sense to have 2 mobos, or actually have 1 msata and 1 mpcie (for sata express), since m.2 is physically different from msata, i.e. mpcie

    so its either msata or m.2 all around or clevo doesnt make sense and would avoid you to use a raid setup

    Looking forward to the testing. Any comments on the fan noise at load would be very helpful for me. Thanks LPL!

    Please could you tell us the system's temp (particularly the cpu and gpu) under load? Does it get hot like the w11?

    I'm curious as well. I'm afraid of that single fan... Acer went from 2 to 1 fan in the transition from the 3820 to the 3830 and screwed it up...

    Same question about heat.

    Also, is the graphics Optimus or the display is wired to discrete GPU or it is switchable in BIOS?

    If it was Optimus or it is switchable to integrated GPU via BIOS, I would expect a much longer battery life in case of need.

    It's Optimus, software switching only.

    Hope the cooling on this system is good. Don't want it to be idling like the W110ER/NP6110 at stock :p

    Sweet. Although I doubt you can overclock the W230ST with the limited power supply and the compacted size without overheating or throttling. But I have high hopes for its design, only time will tell if I'm right... or LightningPL.
