    I rarely see more that 50% load on the cores while gaming with my 4810MQ.

    You average load over a second says nothing about your millisecond to millisecond loading ;) But yes strictly for gaming there are few benefits to the XM.

    Yeah XM is really best left for those who know what they are doing and really into benching. I got the 4900MQ mainly because of heat and noise concerns, and I'm glad I did. You can still get +600MHz on the 4900MQ and that's more than enough to play with for someone (like me) who is new to tweaking.

    There are few people who need guaranteed non turbo speeds and such but yes the 4910 practically covers every base.

    Ordering a P170 Monday and noticed that they all come preconfigured with a single stick of memory. I'm assuming 8gb is enough for gaming but wouldnt it perform better if I had a pair of 4gb chips running dual channel?

    It won't actually have a large impact and it makes it easier to upgrade in future.

    One more question, I have 1.5v memory (all else being equal) from my current laptop, will it work with the P170SM (4810MQ) or is it limited to 1.35v?

    Much like overclocking it's sample dependant, but there is a good chance it wont.

    Is it because the motherboard only supports 1.35v?

    Intel clamp the memory voltage to 1.35V in the specs.
