I think the GPU's are the weak link here. Nvidia can call them what they like, but they're really just rehashed 8 series GPU's.
I'd rather wait until a real new high end mobile GPU comes along.

Also, Display port is a poor output option. HDMI would be more useful.

The mobile GPUs being used are DX10.1... the GTS 250M is a 40nm chip supporting DX10.1

@VadimWolf, there is a desktop i7 and mobile i7. The Kobalt notebook uses a desktop Core i7, which also have a desktop CPU power usage. It's like if you would have slapped GTX295 in laptop body and then said "everyone else sucks, we have GTX295 in our laptop".

"Fast, but no mention of battery life."

because there probably is none lol or the battery weighs more then the laptop itself lol.

Seriously in an everyday laptop no see no point, in those highend gaming/3d laptops where you are always plugged into a wall anyways, that makes sense and I also wonder how ridiculously loud it must be with the fans trying to keep that chip cool.

I think that new NVIDIA mobile gpus come out in about a month so it will be interesting to see if that is for one true and second if they are going to be available for these new laptops. Without a minimum of a 260m it is really a pointless buy...

Wait, I thought nVidia weren't bothering with full DX10.1 support, only certain (unnamed) features? Something along the lines of 'it's not worth it' or 'we couldn't be bothered'.

Although this is about a different laptop, the comments in this review are about the GPU.

This GPU originally debuted in the GeForce 8800GT desktop card in 2007.
Are you saying the mobile 250 is newer and better than the rehashed 260? (serious question)
I can't really believe that.
Also, no Nvidia card officially supports DX10.1. Their current cards only take a few unspecified features of 10.1, that;s why they're listed as 10.0 cards.

Interesting to have an I7 with DDR2 memory, the laptop versions must have more -or different- features to the desktop ones.

I'd say "stupid" rather than "interesting". As DDR3 becomes more common than DDR2, the price of DDR2 will go up. Also I think I'm right in saying that DDR3 uses a lower voltage than DDR2. Surely on a laptop lower power consumption is important.
