    Dual HD 6970 would definitely give you the edge over games coming out.If you can shell out $900 for the upgrade though

    Having the same problem, can't decide if I should keep the M17X or go for the M18X. I can tell you I'm really enjoying the M17X right now, what a laptop!

    I'm pretty sure its a mistake for a single gpu card because it doesn't update the AC adapter to 330W but if it's not Canada is in for a treat.:D

    You seriously think it's gonna stay $150 for Xfire 6970m? It's obviously a mistake.
