Nobody knows for sure, so don't trust anyone who says there will or won't.http://notebookforums.com/showthread.php?t=58609
is just a discussion.
The Xps has actually been around for quite some time, and the 9800 has been around for about 6 months, possibly being replaced by the x800. The 9800 had its glory time... but you can't compare it to a gpu released 6 months later, which is the case in all new releases (otherwise, what would be the point of releasing it?).
I dunno about that "fully upgradeable" stuff... I didn't buy my laptop on that assumption. But the 9800 is an upgrade to the 9700, which was made available, if that's what you mean. (Edit: also, you may freely switch cpu and ram... sounds pretty upgradeable to me)
