    Here we go. So what is the point of Stealth Mode? To quiet down the fan? Why not use this to save battery power. Why did they disabled this while running on battery?

    well when in battery mode it automatically down clocks. so no need for it. stealth mode is used when your plugged in and not doing much like browsing, where you don't need all the extra power.

    makes sense. I'll just get a 9cell battery to get some more juice out of it. I only browse the web on battery. Most of my gaming will be on a/c.

    Oh god a new thread!
    Yeah get the 9 cell, its great to have a longer battery life and even though its a little large, it's gonna help your laptop cooling system!

    the current M15x with the pm55 mobo, supports all current i3,i5 and i7's. but does not work with the low votage ulv versions found in the M11x.

    the bios doesn't matter with the cpu upgrade, but i still do recommend getting the most current bios for your system.

What does the m15x get in 3dmark06 and what gpu cpu combo would be the best for the best price?
