    Conversely, I wish they would offer the GeForce 7800 here for the E1505/6400! Now that would be a sweet machine.

    Not yet, though it did say it's available now - I bet it's not till later tomorrow. I suspect it'll price above 2K :confused:

    Holy hell! I want one! With the 512mb 7900GTX please! :)

    Oh wait I have no money, don't really need one at the moment and well I'm betting fully loaded this will easily top 4k :(

    Still concerned about the styling and build. I wish they'd get rid of the lighting and stickers and strange stripes and go with something nicer-black with flames like the 10k desktop they sell or something but the current/past design doesn;t cut it!

    ya.. definitely curious about the price.. i ordered the m170 with 7800gtx & m760 when it was on last week at $1520... i don't think i'll cancel because this'll probably be too darn expensive right now, but who knows, maybe if there's a version under 2.5k..

    how's the 7900gs vs. the 7800gtx?

    (http://forums.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=46925 is a good reference for non-7900s btw)

    I do prefer the red to the black though. Seems it is "vista capable" and can handle 4gigs of ram whoa!

    GS should perform at least slightly better than a 7800 gtx. I gurantee it'll be 2k plus. can't wait for reviews!
