Our collective wishes have been granted by the fine folks at NVIDIA: you can now buy a notebook with high-end graphics that supports Optimus and thus is capable of offering excellent battery life. NVIDIA is refreshing their GeForce GTX 460M into the 560M.

so it is a 460M at 775mhz instead of 675mhz?
I guess it is better than nothing

Only Alienware and Toshiba are supporting optimus, so not really any big news here.

Cool, but semi pointless at the same time. More battery life is akways good, but dedicated gaming laptops tend to be bigger and heavier then most people like to lug around a ton. As such when they are plunked down they are going to stay there a while and will most likely be plugged in.

I guess it makes sense on some level for a college kid who wants to take notes or something, but once again is it really that hard to find plug ins in a classroom if you really need one?

Also, I see nvidia us up to their old tricks again... Way too many mobile gpus that are the same thing with just differing names

So if the big news is GTX 560M with Optimus, who's on board? So far, only Toshiba with their Qosmio and Alienware with an updated M17x—and the M17x will apparently offer customers the choice of Optimus or a 3D LCD, but not both. Finally, Alienware will also have an SLI GTX 560M with the gigantic M18x, if you're only concerned with maximum gaming performance.
yea thats kinda boring if you ask me...
