If this platform comes to fruition, how long do you think it will take AW's R&D to develop a new mobile laptop? I think we have a better chance of getting one more graphics module before they will release a new m3. I would have to speculate a new m3 late 2005 or 2006. You can also rest assured that Dell probably has exclusive rights to the new ATI PCIe in the mobile area. I would buy a new AW now while you can, the price is reasonable.
first of all, it would be uniwill's R&D (alienware just puts the stuff in, uniwill makes the case and mainboard). Second of all, a new graphics module for the current 766 chassis (i hope they don't change it for the sake of ppl upgrading lol) would be the 9800 and thats it, as there are no more mobile AGP solutions coming out. Third, if they do release it it'll prolly be soon.
Fourth, what the hell is an M3?
Fifth, if dell pulls another stunt like that, we should all send our money to sager to stop such tomfoolery. i don't think they would like to get pwned like last time....
