    Well the A09 has been officially listed, did upgrade ... And. Have begun a clean install of win7 on my SSD ....however I am a bit confused on this point whether one has to install the intel gpu drivers and THEN the 7970M drivers during a clean-install....

    On this dell page (referenced by dell ppl. Here on NBR) seems to me one has to install IGP and then ATI's drivers...is that correct?

    Also, when I installed the 12.1 beta's, I had this mad flickering happening over the left side of my laptop......any idea why? Or is it generally experienced and goes away after some time?
    For the BIOS I'm on A04 and when i go through Alien Autopsy, it tells me I should upgrade to A09 for critical fixes and other stuff.
