Also, any chance the new 80GB and 100GB 7200RPM drives will be out in time to get one put in this laptop? I would really like the 7200RPM speed with more storage capacity, and they were supposed to come out sometime this summer I thought. Dell already has them on their website for the XPS Gen 2. When are you expecting them to come in?
Also, one more question. What's the big deal about bluetooth? The only use I can think of for it is a bluetooth wireless mouse, and those are really expensive I thought. Are there a bunch of other uses for it I'm missing?
I do believe I have finally found the laptop for me. I can't wait for this new Z70V.
I had a lengthy conference call with Seagate on Friday, it would appear that the 80/100gb 7200rpm PATA drives wont be available until mid August, this is dissappointing. These drives were originally due to be released late May, then mid June, then the end June, then beginning July, now August. Apparently, there is a shortage of a key component needed for these drives. We will be receiving 60gb 7200rpm Hitachi drives next week, we are expected to receive 20.
