    ^ I know... :D Bought the first one new and payed 600euros for it (came with an HP bag), then sold it when it was just 2 monts old for 460euros...And now this, The man that sold it to me had some financal problems and needed the money fast...I was like the 10. person that called him, but lucky for me he lives just 3km from me, so i did a litle drive and bot it. If i called like 30 min later, the lappy whood be shiped by then....:toast:

    I've got a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Xi 1546 at home and a HP Compaq 8510w at work. I'm planning a mobile semigaming laptop in a few months (think in the lines of Alienware m11 and Acer TimelineX series).

    I've been checking them out. Minimum graphics has to be HD 5650/GT335M and switchable. Not too many options there. Also only few Asus models ever make it here.

    Actually switchable GPU's are quite common. My N81 has a switchable GPU.

    I've been looking at N81jv too. I'd like a 13" or 14" screen and long battery life too. I've only found a couple that fit the bill.

    Most don't that's why this isn't easy. Asus is getting on the Optimus train quite well, but they usually use some of the lower end cards that suck at gaming.

    Its a beast at 21lbs. Just don't game with it on your lap or you'll burn the heck out of your knees. lol. I'm waiting for the cooler master notepal u3 for this. I've been folding on it lately. It's a sweet lappy. Games look amazing on it. I do wish I waited a bit on getting it. they have i7's in them now. And upgrading cost as much as desktop parts. I wouldn't mind trading in for an upgrade though but I don't think that's possible.
