M9 vs G3I am sure the M10 will be hot on the tail of the GeForce 4 or even the FX but the M9 is on par with the GeForce 3 without doubt.
I dont have proof of this but I have played games on systems with both these cards and the M9 is just as good as the desktop GeForce 3.
Just note what I said - you can play all current games maxxed out then what are you worrying about.
I'd trade a few months with no laptop for a year or two with a relatively top spec laptop in no time.
use your discretion and make your decision. No point in going by what I say and then regretting once the 8888 comes out.
I am very comfortable where I am because I have the 5660 and by the time the 5680 or whatever (with the 800Mhz FSB, M10 etc.) comes out I will be ready to sell...
Jus keep in mind though that I am playing games while you are pondering and I will be playing games when you will be playing games (with the M10 in case you wait and get it) and I still think I am the winner because I didnt have to wait that long to have fun.
But that is just my opinion and my opinion may be biased because of my financial situation which will allow me to buy the next 5XXX when it comes out.
lemme know what you decide...
