If you like the the bigger screen then the m17x will be your choice. It weights 2lbs less than the m7700. It comes with dual video cards by default. Unfortunately, single video configuration is not available for this machine.
We will recommend to contact our Order Status dept to obtain detailed information about your order. Please know we do everything possible to have the system shipped within the time frame given and if there is a delay on a part, customer should be notified immediately. We apologize for this inconvenience.
System is overheating either processor or video card, you may use an air duster to clean the vents, If you have the Area51 m7700, left side there is a vent for the video card, under you will see the fans for the processor and video, make sure they are also clean and back of the system you will find the vent for the processor. Give that a try and let us know.
