    Congrats on the find.

    As someone who had a 18.4" Qosmio, a large screen like that is pure sweetness (makes 17.3" screens look tiny).

    Lets hope it is true.

    + for the find.

    This made my day :)

    Hopefully it will show up on the website soon without pre advertising, just like the old m17.

    For me the 18 will be perfect. I am a fireman and every third day this beast will go from my car to my room. To be able to watch HD/3D? movies will be just what the doctor ordered (still using my Inspiron 9300). It is already written, the AW m18x WILL be my next computer;/-

    rather than speculation, let's go with more from the sw (dell-lab.posterous) engineer, who has just released some new info/specs today:

    as for eta on this "avenger":

    +1 yeah, yeah, yeah... lol :p

    launch is the most speculative aspect atm - but with the place holder already up at dell's support site, along with all the fresh new details rolling in, maybe sooner than summer?

    It could be a good marketing initiative for Dellienware to open a 'marriage list'... Ups! sorry: I mean a 'boarding list' for people ready to make their order on the forthcoming landing M18x... ;)
    According to the quoted 'probably' specifications, many will be ready to start ordering and even advance a first payment for a 'boarding ticket'...:cool: (me among them).

    18in screen with dual graphics sound awesome. Still, if this is going to have hdmi input/3d/better screen then it's worth waiting for.

    That's probably because like the m17x-R1/R2 it will look like a dodge Avenger :)

    I hope the chassis/case won't look like an enlarged m11x. I've been drooling over the m17x r2's case/chassis since the moment I first saw it and am hoping it'll be an 18" version of the m17x r2's case/chassis.
