since the 650 processor take about 25watt less then the 550 processor, would't that combination make easier to put the ultra in there. maybe that's why sager was so quick to put that processor in the laptop. i'm feeling confident that i made the good choice by returning my 9860 and get the 650 over the 550 because i though about the ultra. i also change from the x800 to the geforce 6800 so i can be prepare for the ultra when it comes in.
worst case will need also a bigger ac adapter (180w).
by the way i have own dell's laptop and they are very good and long lasting but i still think that sager is giving you more new technology (dual sata, raid,dual optical, emt64,easy video card upgradability) than dell.
