I'll be buying a laptop in a month and a half, and the best I can find are the Dell XPS line, I want the best graphics I can get, but still I also want some portability. The 15 inch one has an 8600M but the 17 inch has crazy 2x8800 in SLI I think that's going over the limit, SLI in a laptop... it's just too much. and 17 inches is also not very portable I think. Anyways, My question was basically, how long will it take them to upgrade these laptops? Probably no one knows but I thought this would be the best place to ask. I don't want to buy the 15 inch with an 8600M and the next day they release a new one with a 9600 or something better. By the way, this is all in Japan. So I can't buy anything on newegg or tigerdirect etc... still, if you know something better in Japan, i would gladly take a look.
