hmm, lets see. Paid 2285 for my 9100, then another $169 for CC coverage, another $313 for a 9800, and another $220 for 1g memory.
So, if I wanted a new XPS2, it prices out at $3000 right now with the currect $500 rebate, and I'd maybe be able to sell my 9100 for $1600? So I'd be upgrading for $1500 roughly?
hm, a 20" dell WS display is under $600 as I recall, so that could give me a sort of upgrade for the display diff. can't match the gpu, so that's a loser for me. CPU isn't an issue, so the mobile cpu is a moot point.
I guess if it weren't for being able to run World of Warcraft at 1920x1200 normally above 50fps, I might want more GPU. But it doesn't seem the current games are stressing this enough to need an upgrade yet.
But I guess, if i could get around $1600, it wouldn't be terrible to get the new display and gpu for $1500. If the GPU were upgradable on the 9100 again, the 6800 would probably be what, $450? and if the display were upgradable, it would likely be over $500 option at purchase, let alone after the fact, where it would likely top $1000 to change a display.
So, maybe it's not that much of a stretch after all
if the new display was really wanted hehe
