While the 9300 is plastic, its very hard, there isn't any flex or anything like that. It's hard to imagine how they could improve the design. Furthermore, the paint is very good.

The M1210 has dedicated graphics, dedicated graphics will consume alot more power than the Intel integrated in the E1405 and the size of the battery will likely be smaller due to the smaller foot print of the system.
Exactly, that's what Dell is trying...

It should be an aftermarket accessory
9300/m170 compatible version too!
The XPS is already large. SLI uses a lot more battery power, and considering it's supposed to be two cards, what you gain in performance is not worth it.
Now there's a 19 inch laptop? I'd rather get a desktop!
(that coming from someone who's said he'd never buy a desktop again)

True, but the 12 inch screen will maximize battery life.

Very true, its basic economics. Could this mean that Intel will not rush Merom to market?
