    it also has a funky feature of having anssd mini card , that means i can put two normal ssd's in raid 0 and use a small capacity mini ssd to hold temp folders and pagefile etc

    its a very good chassis im glad they messed up my order for a m6400 core cpu is the way to go now shame that any power savings achieved from it from using an i7 cpu is negated by the 100w gpu i would choose in the quadro 3800m

    Most people don't get the M6500 for battery reasons :p I'm really glad they kept the high end WXUGA screen w/ 16:10 aspect ratio! This thing is a beast.

    I wonder if it uses Samsung's miniPCIe SSD w/ built-in I/O controller or if it has an I/O controller connected to it's miniPCIe... (since no other notebook supports SSDs over miniPCIe)

    well if running on battery it should show better battery life (slightly) due to using the core i7 and the newer powermizer for the gpu, shame they have made it so much hotter than the previous one

    although that should only make a difference when gpu is at full load ....

    yeh im sure you mentioned the samsung minipcie card to me in a thread where i asked if i could use one of the minipcie ssd's for a temp file/folder drive
