|hey i was wondering what ever happends to the m9800 that everyone wanted to get.I know dell had the deal on it, but who wants a dell? so now everyone wants pci-e well its going to take along time for pci-e to really takes of,so where is the m9800? well I found something interesting there is a notebook orther then dell that the m9800 and 17in. Its called Orca-6000 and it looks like a sager now I never hard of this company but.I have a sage 8790 and area 51m and its a very good notebook check out the site and tell me what you think
|Eurcomm has reserved one for me but ship date is still probably not until Nov.
|The mr9800, although a excellent video card, has been passed by Sager. Sager deceided to jump into pcie instead of designing a laptop around old and dying technology. The mr9800 is not pin compatible to the mr9700 nor are the power and heat requirements simular. The Dell 9100 and XPS were built with this upgrade in mind. The 9860 based on pcie offers so much more than any agp mr9800 laptop can offer. Even if the performance is not up to par on the first pcie video cards the ability to upgrade makes it all worth it.|
|Does it? The GPU will probably be crap in 4 years anyway. I'm still a bit skeptical about all the hooplah...When it all goes PCI-E and everything is upgradeable then yeah, maybe. But really, I think a laptop will get changed every 4-5 years tops no matter what. If PCI-E is really all that, I think I might want the 2nd gen uber laptop.|
... And that Synergi is as hot as her avatar picture.
Which helps distract those of us who can't wait for this notebook to be released.
It's all good.
