    Yeah, that irked me a bit, too.

    I don't understand how a site can do such an in-depth review, yet leave so many common questions unanswered. It'd be nice to know the machines ACTUAL performance potential.

    Good pics though...I don't see a subwoofer!

    If you read through you'll see all the tests they did were on a single GPU.

    Usually hardware heaven has better reviews. This one left me very disappointed and what was Dell thinking sending them a midrange configuration?

    The users of this site give far better reviews than most mainstream websites anyway.

    I'd rather read what 5150 Joker has to say about the m18x over Hardwareheaven anyday.

    It's called "Brownie Points". They're all hoping Dell gives them m18x for free in exchange for a good review [my outrageous guess].

    Apparently they are adding SLI results later because they need to replace an early revision SLI bridge?
    I personally would have waited until I had the SLI results before publishing the review ^^
