    If I see this again I will shoot myself in the face, or maybe my next door neighbour.

    I kind hope they will simply make the m14x r2 slimmer, lighter, and replace the m11x line with it. There is plenty of bezel to chop off, but that is just IMO.

    I wonder if the new Razer lappies are going to be able to compete with these guys. Temps at this point with respect to space/bulk of the computer vs bleeding edge shrunk dies I think would be the way to go.

    im not expecting miracles from the new breed of cards, there wont be the performance increase we saw in 5870m --> 6990m upgrade. single 6990m can outperform xfire 5870m but the main reason for this is the fact that 5870m use 128bit memory interface, so 6990/70m with the 256bit was the big jump up in performace. as someone already mentioned the increase will be somewhere around 20% so atleast for me not enough to consider upgrading from current 6990m.
    if they manage to pack 660gtx into the m14x that will be much more interesting upgrade for current owners i guess.

    No chance. Razer lappies have mediocre hardware, barely sufficient to run demanding games @ medium settings. Their main feature is "gaming" interface, which looks nice but , IMHO, just another gimmick.

    BTW, nice to see that you still have the first gen chugging along :)
