    The battery life estimate on xotic is 2-3 hours, which seems quite low. However, the $100 670m->675m upgrade looks solid and overall this laptop seems great :) Now just got to wait for Ivy Bridge.

    Did the mSATA (second mini slot) make its way onto any of these new models?

    That $100 upgrade to the 675 is tempting, but it's seriously on the border of my budget then. Are there any comparisons between the 580 and 570 (because the 670 and 675 are straight rebrands) out there?

    Definitely worth the upgrade, the 675m is stated to be 4-5% performance increase over 580m.

    Although if you can't afford it I heard the 570m can over clock very well, and the 670m is already bumped up some.a

    GTX675M performs EXACTLY the same as GTX580M with the same drivers :)
    Some French resellers said that the 675M would run cooler than the 580M but I highly doubt it. If anyone could confirm ?

    Also got the 1st review of the P150EM/9150 here:
    Test Schenker XMG P502 PRO Gaming Notebook - Notebookcheck.com Tests

    From what I read thru, I can tell:
    Pros:
    - Beautiful matte screen, very bright !
    - Nice touchpad and back-lit keyboard
    - Battery life much enhanced with Optimus
    - Speakers and sounds much improved too (Onkyo speakers)
    - Very nice performances, 675M is exactly alike 580M

    Cons:
    - It gets hot inside (CPU and GPU), was expecte though as this is a similar layout to the P150HM. The barebone gets a bit warm too.
    - Very noisy, even noisier than GT780 with Turbo boost ON - Also we can read that the fans are always running even @ idle (didn't they correct the EC temps trip?) so similar issues as before (basically it's never quiet)

    Otherwise great design, really like it ! Still tortured with the GT 60 though..

    pau1ow, did the review mention that the EM was hotter and noisier than the HM? Or just hot and noisy in general?

    I demand +rep for this. Here are the numbers:

    1.) P150EM noise
    Idle 34.5 / 34.5 / 38.9 dB
    HDD 34.5 dB
    DVD 37.8 / dB
    Last (under load in german) 47.9 / 53.6 dB

    2.) P150HM noise
    Idle 32.1 / 32.1 / 35.2 dB
    HDD 33.0 dB
    DVD 38.6 / dB
    Last (under load in german) 45.2 / 45.2 dB

    P.S. NOTE! Anything above 50 decibels is CLEARLY audible and can **** you off if you listen to it for long enough! In fact, its louder than some laptop speakers. Here is your "shredder-book" that will get you kicked out of the room if someone sleeps in it.

    Wow. My friend and I are considering these laptops for school, but if we can't take them to class/library/have them in the dorms without bothering sleeping people, they might be a no-go.

    At least the DVD drive is quieter? :confused:

    Hopefully the P170EM isn't quite so loud.

    Just wait and see with Ivy Bridge and AMD 7970M. Not only will it be quiet, but it will be more powerful at the same price (or less!!!).

    It's not to bad...
    better then asus G series. I have g50vt 3.5 years old that -as a new- had louder volumes then that and it's still, this day, is hardley audible over night.
    can get better but it's not a deal breaker.

    But, if we take out the DVD and HDD instead use SSD only it won't be so noisy. Or I'm I wrong?
    For me, the epoc of DVD and HDD is over and if I want to move forward I would choose only to work with SSD even if they are more expensive.

    We don't need any more DVD to install windows or any other programs. If in some accident I drop my laptop I won't worry if it use SSD but if it's HDD, wow danger, all data may be lost. There many more advantages to use SSD than HDD and DVD, even if it's more expensive.

    Other thing, I'm sure that in near future all games will came in USB memory instead in DVD discs.

    Something tells me to wait a good amount of time before concluding anything way out of my league now :)
