    Given the fact that they are releasing a second line up, I have doubts Dell will release a bios version making Ivy Bridge backwards compatible with the current sandy bridge chipsets. I'm also assuming there will be an M11x R4 too

    Thanks for the info... I'd love to see some tech specs on the 7970m, but what happened to the nvidia 680m?

    680M being held back like the 7990M to get more money out of us. Staggered launch.

    Looks cool. I'll probably hang on to mine for a year or so. My CPU runs perfectly quickly :D however, I'll undoubtedly cash out when the 680m hits as long as it will run in the M17x R3. Anyone wanna fund me to be the first one to try it out? :D
