when buying voodoo u pay for the name, the pride of ownership, the paint job, the community, and the great customer service
if i had the money id buy a voodoo
aqua- yea man i feel your pain, it seems like you really have had a chore on your hands with that laptop, i read your posts on voodoo forums
since yours has the 9600 gpu and mine has the 9700...i am assuming it has a different power consumption because of the different motherboard that was swapped along with the gpu (correct me if im wrong someone), so maybe some problems were fixed, or maybe they got worse i dont know i will have to find out in a few days. maybe there is a new fan as well, along with a fix on the wavy grill (i still dont know what that means or how bad it is).
when i get my g556e, if it runs perfectly or with less problems or even a quiet fan, then maybe you have hope in voodoo re-releasing the m460 as the m470, and it will have the fixes you desire...maybe they will upgrade/replace it with the m470 for free. or u can sell ur m460 for $1700 and buy what i bought
or of course mine will suck completely ass and will be an equal nightmare as yours
