    Isn't the 3GB not even really 3GB that is strictly for the GPU? Doesn't it share 1GB of that RAM?

    So, I decided to do a little digging. Someone has proboly already said this, or may say I'm lieing, but go ahead. (*trolls* fake and =3) Anyways, I decided to call Dell Sales. Asked a dude about the M11x R3. Actually got a US guy. He said that his fiance wants one, and me wants an M14x. He said he didn't know when they will come out, but he said that the M11x R3 will start lower than the R2 out now, made sense since this has happened on all new SB dell models. (M17x, XPS 17) He also said it may be out in 2 weeks, since Dell tech training for it started Monday. So, I'm happy. Got a little info, and he said he'd email me when it comes out and make sure I got a good deal. ;) You guys got any comments?

    555 does not sound right for the M14x. I was halfway expecting the 6870 to pop in the M14x and say hi.

    It'll be embarrassing if dell gives the 555m ddr3 ram.

    9:22:36 PM Shoji M hi AJ
    9:23:50 PM AJ hello, I am wondering when the M11x R3 will be released. I have been waiting for 2 months now, following forums and hoping to see the R3 released this month. I had the R2 but did not like it too much because of the hinge and the screen, is there any info?
    9:24:14 PM Shoji M apologies on this but we do not hav yet the information to when it will be released AJ
    9:24:38 PM Shoji M we do appreciate your interest on this
    9:24:49 PM Shoji M but as of the moment the final layout and design is not yet finalized
    9:24:56 PM AJ Is there any trainings going on for preparation of the laptop?
    9:25:34 PM Shoji M we will do have one as soon as the final specs are available
    9:26:08 PM AJ I just do not want to waste my time waiting for a laptop that will never show.
    9:26:44 PM Shoji M once it is ready for release we will automatically update the websirte for it
    9:27:12 PM AJ ok, well thanks for the info.
    9:27:39 PM Shoji M most welcome

    You know, I have been looking into other laptops like the new Sony S and C series, but I just looked at them today and the C series is too clunky and the S series is ridiculously old technology, you need to manually switch the GFX cards and you also need to spend $250 extra on the CPU to get the higher (not so good) ATI GFX card.
    I am hoping that the new M11X R3 will be released soon, as I have no laptop now (sold the M11X R2). If it is not released soon, I might just have to get the L502X, good computer, just want a more portable gaming machine.
