I rememeber ATI mentioning that they would be launching mobile parts "very soon" after their desktop counterparts came out. I would not be shocked to see something announced before the end of this month.
You can haggle, but your mileage really varies and depends on the person you are talking to. If you aren't getting any luck with the current person, try another. And remember to get them to throw in "freebies" if they don't go any lower on the price.
According to my friend over at NBR, the BX series will no longer have the X700 option but rather an undisclosed NVIDIA card. This is correct since the BX series no longer has the option for an X700 on the site, and the pre-configured model that had it was pulled.
The Sony S-580 Series now has the option to include the NVIDIA GeForce Go 6400. The upgrade requires the 512 MB option ($50) and costs $70 over the standard integrated graphics option.
The FS series will follow suit in the coming weeks.
