I didn't want to mess around with laptops, I just went for the XPS 2. I plan on upgrading the memory when it's cheap. 1GB is good right now, I'm hoping when 2GB modules come out for notebooks I can load up 4GB, since I'm not convinced that the 915pm chipset really has a 2GB cap.
As for the 7800....I might be willing to upgrade to that in a long time. $600 for the desktop part....that's just harsh. Mobile parts are just as much, if not more. At least the 7800's use less power.
To get back on topic, that's a damn fine mod you did. Going from a 9200 to an XPS 2 (effectively) is definitely impressive.
