That is correct. I owned a CX7 for a while and just recently traded it for a high end water cooled desktop but as a hard core gamer I say the 7800 gtx go chip / pentium M combo even at 2.0 ghz like I had will rock in games. Mine never hiccuped once in Battlefield 2, Counter-Strike Source etc even after hours. And never any artifacting or other thermal related issues either.
Just watch out and remember that if you want to game you better be plugged into A/C. Pentium M and 7800 GTX go chips both have power throttling features to help with battery life when only running battery. That kills 3D performace to the max.
I was getting 98 frames per second in counter-strike: source "Office" even in a fire fight when on A/C. That is saying something considering all the physics play on that particular map with things flying all over when hit by flying lead and tumbling ragdoll bodies After trying it on battery it dropped into the 30's frames per second. Definately a difference.
