    Wouldnt be surprised if it (the pricing, thats is) was pretty much identical to this year´s 11inch model... with comparable specs, of course ;)

    Still hoping for something like 760m GDDR5. Please!

    There will be a variety of factors in pricing, but if it really does ship with a 1080p screen and if they do manage to get a 760M in it (I'm still betting it's just a 750M), you'll see a bump in the price compared to the 11". I believe the original source post stated the 11" model wasn't being discontinued, just wasn't getting a refresh. So the 11" would probably keep the same price point, maybe a little bit of a discount when the new 13" model comes out, but I'm thinking it's probably gon'na be $1099.99-$1199.99 base.

    I agree it will depend on the specifications and positioning and is likely (I have no special info) to cost more than the 11", just hopefully a touch more and not lots more.

    C'mon Meaker, you have any more insight on this? Spill it! :) I'm sure you'll push this beast to its limits too, lol, but that's good. Amazing that the W110ER can get over 3000 3DMark11 with a BIOS OV mod. ;)

    I'm not sure how well I would do owning a machine without an MXM slot, it would feel.... odd.

    Maybe if:

    A) The next gpu was pin compatible
    B) The Vbios was not a pain to get to being encoded in the system bios

    :p

    Will this be a dual fan design chassis or will they keep it to a one fan?
