    Just mailed my laptop back today. Curious to see how this whole RMA process will take place.

    Hope its appropriate to ask here, I didnt feel like it deserved its own thread. Is there any not so public news about when some updated nvidia drivers for the GTX680m are coming? The ones we have now have almost no options and I believe miniscule drivers are why some games auto detect low settings, as if it only sees the Intel HD4000 card(Witcher 2, Sonic).

    Otherwise this laptop is absolutely amazing. Witcher 2(I can get it to run after tweaking a bunch of stuff) is absolutely flawless. Saints row the third is beautiful. Cold boot in 10-12 seconds puts a smile on my face every time. Such a great Laptop.

    Note: I still have this impression after upgrading from a P150HM with a GTX485m, not exactly a slow laptop that I changed from.

    What's everyone's favorite color scheme with the back-lit keyboard? :)

    Hey, can one of you guys get me a copy of your default BIOS/EC image (The SAGER one NOT the CLEVO one)? Also, anyone with a 3720/3820/3920 cpu can you check to see if VT-d is supported with an app like CPU-z ?

    Just heard from Larry at LPC; Sager is going to cross-ship me a new 7970M. Crossing my fingers that everything will be fine with the new one!

    I got my p170em in today, and i am having trouble installing the 680m driver! i am using the driver cd supplied with laptop and when i click on install nvidia driver its telling me device was not found, please enable it before installing its driver. so i go to the nvidia driver folder manually and run the setup, and its telling me This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware! GRRRR. then i go to nvidias website and its telling me no drivers exist for 680m windows 64 bit! im getting frustrated

    (fixed it! called the manufaturer they told me they shipped me an old driver disk, only had 670 and 675m drivers on it and directed me to clevos official site)

    This person had the same problem. I'd contact Malibal, or whoever you got yours from, and see if you can get the driver he got.

    Looks like those are right on for the Quadro. Its not made for gaming so you'll see lower results like that. But it will fly as a workstation.
