I have read that the hybrid drives are not all that helpful. You may explore either getting the readyboost (built-in 1GB flash) or putting a 4GB flash card in an expresscard adapter. Either way will give some speed boost now, and hopefully more when Vista SP1 is ready.
Ah, my exam was Thursday and I was waiting from Monday. It went so fast like it's only 2 days. Now 4 days of waiting for my future will be m15x, it feels like 4 weeks. I know for sure I will hate the wait
This will be interesting. I'm not counting on the 15" version having the GO 8800GTX, even though the leaked screenshots would lead us to that. It's always possible that they hadn't completed the web design yet for the customization, and what we're seeing is just the template for the 17".
But, it would, indeed be very cool if the new 15" is a powerhouse.
