20$ on Oct. Why October? Because everything I've read on Digitimes says that there is no new Dell 17" chassis currently waiting for approval for production runs.
And since the XPS m1710 went above the older generations by merging higher security and portability options (D/Port connector and SmartCard reader). Plus Nvidia is still working out alot of issues with the 8-series mobile. They roadmap'd an 8800GT and an 8800GTS yet neither of them have any buzz or news hitting the wiring yet.
Usually there is about 6 weeks notice before a product is ready for an OEM to release it to consumers. Right now there isn't a peep out of all the companies that would be getting press over in Asia if something was getting ready to hit soon. Once I hear some news I'll likely place a bigger bet for 6 weeks from that day to cover my smaller bet. =)
