    Yeah, i don't know what the pricing would be but the high end Core Duo the 1710 comes with would definitely result in a high price, and the graphics card cost would add to that significantly.

    "Just to clear something, the name of the new XPS is not M1701, it is M1710."

    Lmfao... I thought I might be wrong. I was going to google it and edit it if I needed to... but I forgot to check. Ha.

    The 7900GTX alone will be over $500

    Think I'll be able to moan about my purchase of the 9400 and ask them to replace the 7800GO with the 7900GO?

    I hope so! :(

    But would you pay the price for such a beast??

    i've been reading this thread going back and forth between buying the new m1710 or waiting for the e1701 to get the 7900.....i think i'm leaning toward the first opt. i also wonder if the new M gets a makeover??

    Well, i somewhat think there could be a few changes.

    The reason i ordered my M170 right before this thing is coming out, is because Dell is really cutting back on the prices.

    Also, why would i pay $1000 more to get a newer looking XPS, Core Duo, and the 7900GTX, when there is a strong chance that M170 users will be able to upgrade to the 7900GTX. Which, if its true, leaves Core Duo, and better looks left.
