You can go and get a sleek looking Voodoo for that much. Also, I don't know why everyone gets so excited about these upgradable GPUs. From everything I have seen they are much slower than a system with the GPU on board.
I went to one of those Dell kiosks. It's true the new XPS laptop is just plain pugly. I know how some people can overlook the montrosity, but this thing stuck out like a sore thumb. It reminds me of pancakes stack together in a heap. The good thing is the bottom half of it is mostly devoted to ventilation so overheating risk is probably minimal. Oh, another thing, after I configure the laptop, the ship date shown was March 29! That's more than a month away. Forget it.
