I doubt it, there's nothing for me to say in a review format that hasn't been said already. And I've seen 7700 hardware setups here far superior to my own.
I can comment on my personal use so far. Most of all I intended to make the plain, simple point that the supposed flaws of the 7700 have been grossly misrepresented. When I woke up this morning I placed my laptop on top of my desk and turned it on. It's been on all day, apart from the several times I've rebooted it while performing various tasks. The ventillation/heat management on this is remarkable, especially when you know what kind of equipment is running in there.
For one, I lifted up my laptop a little while ago and felt the desk underneath it. It's perfect room temperature. I felt the bottom of the laptop and it's the same. This is without the aid of any docking stations, and the only way to feel heat from this is to put your hand directly across either ventillation duct along the rear or left side. The area surrounding the touchpad is admittedly warm but it's beyond me to relate what people's problems with this might be. It feels fine to me.
Where the complaints regarding noise are concerned, it hasn't made a peep as of this writing. I have both it and my desktop running on the same desk, and all I hear is my desktop (700mhz, Voodoo5): the normal humming of a single running computer to which I've grown pretty accustomed over the years.
The remaining complaint is that the laptop is heavy, and I was expecting something completely unmanageable. It's not all that heavy except when you're comparing it to other lesser laptops. I carried it a distance yesterday and didn't feel particularly encumbered by it. No more than if I were carrying my guitar or some groceries. It's not something you would want to take up a mountain with you, but why would you do that anyway?
So yes, I think the 7700 detractors deserve a verbal thrashing. The number of them all bringing up similar complaints made those complaints actually seem feasible. But five minutes out of the box and it was immediately apparent that the complaints were unfounded and I had been mislead. Fortunately, this was mostly out of curiosity and wasn't influencing my purchase decision, but I would hate to think of a person who decided not to get the 7700 because somebody told them it sucked.
I still retain some complaints of my own. I think that the extra keyboard space should have been used for the arrow keys and insert/del/home/etc. instead of numlock. The prior are infinitely more important for typing than the latter. The entire point of them is that they are shortcuts; as soon as you have to hold another key to use them they cease to be useful. This sort of function key nonsense is supposed to be reserved for $800 crap with an LCD screen attached, not +-$3000 'boutique' laptops for professional/gaming computer users.
I also despise touchpads, and look forward to the day when they stop being produced altogether in favor of a retractable trackball in their stead. They don't work for any purpose; not for typical functions within the OS, not for gaming, not for graphic design, nothing. I resent any suggestion that this defect in pointing devices should be remedied by tethering my purportedly 'mobile' computer to any number of peripheral devices. Again, for a laptop aimed at elite computer users it doesn't seem unreasonable to expect more than lesser laptops have.
