    Well I didn't see one of these around and I don't know how swell it wil be considering the business notebooks seems to be well made and have few issues but I decided to start this up and I will post links to things that are helpful, whether its benchmarks, on site reviews, etc. I'll even post your stuff :)

    Benchmark Comparisons of the i7-720QM and i7-820QM and some i7-620M
    i7-720QM/i7-820QM (CPU Intensive applications will see a big boost otherwise there is no difference.)

    i7-620M

    I'll keep updating as things come in. Let me know of anything you think should be on here and I'll add it.

    im glad u got the 1800m cos im thinking of one with this in and i wud love to know how it performs in gaming in terms of frames. and maybe a 3d 06 score although we know it doesnt reflect on actual real life gaming.

    Yeah me too actually. I've been putting the ATI 8530 through its paces and so far I can play Farcry, Crysis Warhead, Bioshock, and Assassin's Creed I, all with maxed out settings at 1920x1080 on my external monitor with the laptop monitor still going. Essentially for gaming the 1800M will have to live up to that. I have yet to render any beefy movies or images in autocad or anything, I'll do that this weekend I think and compare that to the 1800M. For me, gaming isn't essential but its definitely the best bragging rights. No one gives a hoot (except my nerdy friends) how fast I can render things, but everyone can appreciate crysis maxed out at 1080p ;)

    What did your final price come out to be for your config?

    Would really like to see these 2 duke it out. GL based GFx are notoriously under tuned for games but should be great for CAD/design. Since the nVidia parts don't support DX11 nor openGL 3.0 yet its hard to compare feature for feature.
