    Any stats on power consumption and Thermal output?

    Nice to See these graphics cards making their way into the mobile market.

    Now THIS is what I've been waiting for. Don't get me wrong, I like my GeForce 9400M, but the issues I've been having with their Linux drivers lately have been ridiculous.

    No chance of Asus doing that for you mate. would be interesting to see if they can be swapped out. It'll most likely be how the cooling solution is implimented which'll be there problem if they are using a standard MXM interface... (i'm just guessing atm)

    The newest fglrx works great with my 4870 on my desktop while almost every NVIDIA drive I install has problems corrupting my desktop. Maybe it's just me, but NVIDIA hasn't been able to provide me with a decent Linux driver since I've owned my laptop.

    I also am concerned about heat.... The 4000 series biggest flaw. Will that translate into notebooks? A little late too.

    "Now, notebooks equipped with one or a pair of these speedy graphics processors can take on just about any PC game and run them smoothly at their maximum option settings."

    But at how many FPS I wonder?

    Although my mobile HD2600 can play games nicely... I would really like to upgrade to one of these babies... Just hope that Toshiba can make the exchange :D Do they offer any €€ for my HD2600? I don't want to put in my graveyard of graphics cards... :/
