    Hmm, reads like it's shiny shiny shiny but then falls over on battery life, CPU speed on battery and to some degree GPU performance vs a 765M. Such a shame that nothing quite ticks all the boxes, W230ST feels plasticky because it is plastic but it has the performance and screen size, Razer Blade has the battery life and thickness but a terrible display, this has the case, keyboard and price about right but lacks battery life. I guess I'll just stick with my W110ER and wait to see if anyone does anything interesting (apple retina macbook maybe).

    A great comparison machine would have been the MSI GE40 ($1299). Other reviews have shown that model to get over 8 hours of battery life with similar specs. However, it has weak speakers and a 1600x900 screen.

    Re: Reviews - Gigabyte P34G

    My main problem with this laptop ...
    I have yet to see a Gigabyte laptop in the wild in a retail store. It looks nice in photos, is well specced and the reviews are quite good, however nothing can replace an actual 'hands on' experience.
    One of the reasons Macbooks probably sell so well is that there are (obviously) the Apple stores, the resellers and then the general sections in other outlets such as Curry's and once you have had a Mac you know that the next update model is likely to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary (though not always the case).
    The same could be said of Sony's Vaio's. Once you have had a Vaio you kind of know what a Vaio is going to be like.
    My pet hate on laptops is flex in the keyboard and the feel of the keystroke. No matter how good the review on a site such as Hexus the keyboard feel is very much an indivduals own user experience.
    Unless Gigabyte get their models out into stores its unlikely they will ever shift them in large numbers.

    Re: Reviews - Gigabyte P34G

    I'm choosing between the Gigabyte P34g and the Clevo W230ST (XMG P303 Pro) and I was wondering how certain things compare.

    The main things I'm concerned about are:
    1. Screen: Overall quality, matt finish, brightness for outside viewing, and dimness for dark rooms and presentations? Also, how apparent is the difference in screens sizes?
    2. Noise. How do fan noises compare under full load?
    3. Keyboard and track pad?

    If anyone has any input would be very thankful.

    RandomTaskManager, I am currently weighing up the same choices as you, which did you go for in the end? are you happy with your choice?
