The first Sonoma I liked was the Acer 8104.
Then there was the Dell XPS Gen 2 (I never even knew it was coming.. just saw it on the website one day). Don't really like the black trim (prefer white, like the 9200/9300), but I really like the built in, color-changing LEDs.
Now I'm looking forward to the 9300, however, after reading these posts, I now realize that the XPS Gen 2 beats it with the GeForce 6800 Ultra... definitely makes things interesting for me. I saw an i9200 at a Dell stand a few days ago. I picked it up and was surprised at how light the 17" laptop was. Really impressed.
I'm gonna be buying a laptop in June/July/August for University in September. You guys think the XPS Gen 3 or i9400 will be out by then?
