    So... Any hints on when this is going to be available? I'm ready to throw my money at the first reseller that has it. :D.

    Updated OP with details we know, or at least think we know. Also any ideas what the Sager nomenclature will be? NP230ST? Or NP6130? ?

    I'd place performance around 670mx in shader bound titles and a bit below for rop/memory bandwidth bound situations.

    I have been looking at this for quite a while and looking at my W110ER I currently use for EVERYTHING. I do not think I will be switching, I don't see any "wow factor" for this machine as I would have hoped too, YET. I don't see any thunderbolt, I don't see display port, I agree that it'll only have 2 Ram Slots, the GPU isn't going to be much of a jump up and what about a touch screen?. (why would they want to sell a 1k laptop with a powerful GPU?? they don't want it cutting into the sales of the larger more expensive laptops!) I think I will pass unless more than 2 of my WOW factors have been met.. IMO! Can't wait to see everyone's review on the machine, though.
