The specs are as follows: 12" WXGA screen (1280 x 800), Nvidia 7300 or ATI x1300 graphics, integrated optical drive DVD+-rw dual layer, Intel Core Duo, up to 2 or 4GB memory, Bluetooth v2 and 3945abg, webcam Option and front located media buttons.

    i bet it toasts your lap.. he he.. thow 7300 grfx isnt much neither is x1300 but it is all in a very small package..

    kinda pretend gaming really.. the higher numbers fooled me for second.. 7300 sounds better than 6600.. still 640 x 480 would praps look okay on such a small screen.. it wouldnt have the grunt for 1280 x 800..

    isnt there a 7800 mobile dedicated graphics for laptops? there was a 1.8ghz amd laptop at bestbuy in the refurb rack for $800, which said it had 512mb of ram, 1.8ghz amd athlon mobile, and a 7800 with 256 dedicated. that sounded like a beast of a mobile gamer laptop.

    the bottom left corner of the screen was all dead pixels. i think someone dropped it or maybe dmging in shipping, $800 for a $1800 laptop, and lft screen replacement was estimated to be only $200 for that model.

    1280x800 is too much for that screen, should be less

    Xps 1210

    The res on the 710m is (1280 x 800 resolution) which is being replace by the XPS 1210.

    That report is correct from what they have trained us on at work, yes I work there ;)

    I hope this clears up any confusion.

    They should have at LEAST an X1600... at the leats. Prefferably 7600. If they had mobile versions.
