    Yeah I want to get lower power 35w spec chipset because I need to try to get the battery life up as much as possible. Does Clevo/Saeger ever make an extended battery solution? Or do any resellers offer such things?

    If the pricing on that Xotic link is the real deal, then this machine will be a winner for sure

    Dang this is tempting... ~$1,100 for everything I was wanting, minus a MSATA SSD.

    Just a couple questions. Is it possible to buy it with just one mSATA and upgrade to RAID 0 at a later date, and can you ask Xotic to not install a mechanical hard drive. I have absolutely no use for one since I already have another storage drive that I am going to drop in it when I buy it.

    You can usually special order without the HDD, but it will probably take longer to get it, and only save you a few bucks.

    But yes you can add a second mSATA later, preferably same kind and size if you're going to run RAID 0 but will have to reinstall the OS.

    Yeah that is pretty much what I thought. There is really no rush for me to get a new laptop so I suppose I will probably just have them drop the HDD and I will pre-order mine later this week.

    That pricing makes the Alienware 14 seem ridiculous. Moreso if the cooling and build quality are decent.
