I heard that the 9860 can't handle any more heat (it makes sense since the 9860 is an excellent stove/lap-top already).
Looks like Sager will be happy to upgrade a 7700 with the Ultra card for the low low price of $895....and without mentioning names, there's this one fool over on the AW boards who can't seem to wait to dump the $895 on an Ultra card for his 7700. He goes on to say "The XPS 2 just got a lot smaller, and we AW owners don't care what we have to spend to reclaim the crown (At least for awhile ;-). A ULTRA equipped AW/Sager is gonna kill the XPS 2 as long as its the same card and not underclocked. "
Now why would anyone with an IQ past double digits say something like that when a non-ultra equipped 7700 doesn't even kill a 9300? Maybe his expectations aren't that high...after all, when you read his review of his new 7700, one of his comments was "The Alien head on the clam shell was bigger then I expected and the glowing eyes must be seen IN PERSON to be believed."
