It's performance still won't be all that impressive, except maybe for the increased CPU and memory FSB which is supposed to accompany it. The Mobility X600 is pretty much a Mobility 9700 with a PCI-Express interface, and a couple of added features for LCD panel specific stuff.
Future upgradeability via AXIOM or MXM is the real reason for excitement about upcoming PCI-Express notebooks. The initial notebooks aren't gonna show breakthrough performance compared to the latest AGP/PCI notebooks with quality components, as they're pretty much the same components connected with different buses.
But, the fact that there's PCI-Express notebook prototypes out there already is pretty cool in itself.
