When I got my 9300 I wasnt wild about the white edges but they grew on me and Im sure if you got the m70 you wouldnt mind the precision print on the cover that much besides, how often will you be looking at it anyhow when you are using the laptop??
Or...there is the XPS Gen2 with a 6800Ultra card, the best out there for gaming which is a little cheaper than the M70 and has a totally unique look to it. For extreme gaming I would recommend the XPS Gen2 over the M70.
The reason that I am not getting the 9300 or the XPS 2 is because I already have a 17 inch laptop. Well, I don't have it now because I gave it to my wife but it is a Gateway m680 with X700 graphic card.
So now I want a laptop that is smaller and more portable. That is why I bought the 15.4 inch Asus z70va with X700 ATI. I received this great looking laptop on Friday, 3 days ago...but the constant spinning of the fan producing constant annoying noise make return it. I am in the process of getting it returned.
So now I turned to the Dell m70. The member laptop<3 hates fan noise and he actually stated that he loves the Dell m70 due to the quietness of the machine.
I can get a good m70 for $2200 from Ebay so I am looking into getting it now.
