Granted you have to mod it in, but true computer enthusiasts know how to do this. Not everything in life is put the money on the table and have everything done for you.

Inspiron 9300 will not be getting an upgrade to the Nvidia G0 7800 GTX or any other card not currently offered
XPS M170 is not currently being offered to customers in Australia and will be released at a later date (yet to be determined). I was told to call back next year and ask about when it will be offered locally.
So essentially at the moment.. even if i did want to upgrade my laptop to the XPS M170 to take advantage of the Nvidia G0 7800 GTX at the moment I CANT! because Dell isnt selling it here and wont be for who knows how long.
Im begining to wonder why I bought a Dell !!!
