Asus's New Santa Rosa/DX10 Laptops

No reviews out yet and dont know what to quote. Think they will be as cheap as current asus laptops. I want either a A8j or a Macbook. Macbook is cheaper but has integrated gfx and that sucks.

I wonder when we'll see an 8800 series mobile GPU. I doubt the 8600 will run games at high res very well.

Well the 8600GTNot GS (GS is less then half as fast)
Benches close to 7950GTX (At least in 3dmark)
So the Mobility 8900 (They already said no 8800mobile because its too hot)should be good.

Lolz a DX10 laptop that will play DX9 games at inferior frames compared to a 7600/1600 and will play DX10 games (from the best indications) like mud?

No thanks

Edit: I do intend to get an asus lappy soon, but it will likely feature a x1700, or if ATI can ship the HD 2600m's (provided they fair better in DX9 than their nVidia counterparts), I may look into DX10 support.

Okay I went looking for the real game benchies that I saw last, but perhaps it was a case of driver infancy. Nevertheless, the 3x 3Dmark benefit to 8600GT is highly inflated in comparision to these benchies from anand.

A 20% increase at best for the 8600GT and at what price?
