I am looking at the Asus z71v and the XPS 2. main differences are the brand, z71v comes with 6600go while XPS2 gets the 6800 ultra, XPS2 also gets UXGA screen (but how good are dell screens anyways??) and z71v is lighter. z71v is like $1952 for 2ghz, XPS2 is like $2526 (right now with coupon). Does anybody have any idea if the price on the XPS2 will drop once people start receiving them, or if better coupons than $800 off will be available? I am unfamiliar with how dell usually operates so I was wondering because I dont think it is worth the extra 600$, and would definitely buy if it came down to $2300s. Also when using the battery, does anybody have an idea how long it would last for dvd viewing and normal processing? I have seen a time of jsut over 2hrs for gaming, but I was wondering what it would be when not gaming? Thanks for any info..
