Here is my 2c worth:

This is looking to be one very impressive machine.

Pro's

SLI capable in a 17" screen chassis

go7800 capable and probaby go7900GS as well.

WUXGA screen capable

Full sized keyboard with numeric key pad.

2.5 hour battery life capable with 1 VGA card

8.56lb (3.8kg) light for a power house like this (14lb for 19" SLI Sager machine)

Dual core 64bit Turion AMD processor, everything in 1 CPU

Dual SATA, RAID capable Hard Drives capable.

HDMI out for future proofng

Cons

I doubt this will take a 7800 GTX or 7900 GTX(power requirements too high)

Not the best looking machine, looks like a hostipal (too clinical)

Power supply output seems a little low, won't allow for GTX GPU's

Here is what I would like to see happen for this machine, to make it a dream machine.

This needs a SLI 512MB go7600GT's, it would have decent power and some battery life.

It will never beat the Sager NP5950 with SLI go7800 GTX or go7900 GTX so beat it with some battery life and the WUXGA screen.

I'm available to do any testing if needed :)

the ahtec is much better, it has a 17 display and SLI 2x7800 GTX. A 17" notebook is complicated to carry around, try a 19"... rolft.

By the way... does anyones knows if there are any intel notebook with mxm sli? or if there are plans to built one in the future?

The Ahtec machine looks like just what I need for Oblivion!

Not until Intel can sort out their chipsets to be SLI capable :)
