    Dell's XPS M1730 gaming notebook has not been released yet, although its launch was planned for September 21st. Despite the delay, specs leaked from Dell’s official website say that the XPS M1730 will be configurable with the 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7300, 2.2GHz T7500, 2.4GHz T7700 as well as the latest Core 2 Extreme X7900 CPU at 2.8GHz. All these CPUs have 4MB of L2 cache and a 800MHz front side bus. Dell’s new 17-inch glossy TrueLife widescreen display with 1920x1200 pixel resolution will be powered by NVIDIA GeForce Go 8700M GT dedicated video card with 512MB GDDR3 memory in single or dual (SLI) configuration. The specifications also mention 2GB 667MHz DDR2 memory (4GB for an additional $375), AGEIA PhysX 100M physics card and 2x200GB 7200rpm hard drives in RAID configuration. The notebook’s price starts from $2,999 for the basic configuration and climbs up to $4,192 for the premium model.

    Well thank God. I mean, at those price points, maybe they should delay it forever.

    Wonder if the 8700 gt will outperform that 7950 gtx they're currently using. Oh and for the fastest.....defiantly Alienware, dual 7950 (or 7900) in sli.

    That's the price you pay for a desktop replacement. Desktop power in a portable package doesn't come cheap.
