AIRWICK, I am not sure what your point is? It will probably be $200-300 more expensive than the M6BNE and CL56 but you are also gaining a better screen in both cases and better graphics over the ASUS. For people looking for the elusive combination of WSXGA or WUXGA, 9700 128mb GPU, and battery life - This is the Holy Grail! There is no other notebook out there (other than dell) that meets these criteria. $200-300 bucks is worth it in my opinion.
