    Alienware ship date for the r2 is 28th of may I think. But 'Copperhed' claims to have received one in iPhantomhives reply...

    There has however been a benchmark for the 650m, right on par with the 560m, Not sure if it was the DDR3 or GDDR5 version though.

    Just ordered mine (stealth black) with i7 3610QM, 6GB Ram, 500GB Hard Drive, 900p screen, and 1 GB GT 650M for $1299.99. However I'm thinking about getting the color changed to nebula red, although that might push the ship date a bit :\

    In some of these benches, the DDR3 seems to perform better than the more expensive DDR5. Weird...

    Wow! I got mine today. Had the FedEx slip on the door, went down and picked it up.

    core i7-3610

    I am impressed, didn't think it would be here the day after the press release.
