Okay so I am thinking if they might announce a M11X R3 at CES 2011?? I think if I wait till then I might get a bargain on the M11X R2 i7, 8gb of ram...then when the new intel ssd's come out in hopefully spring throw one of those in there with say 240gb and it would last me a long time.

This is of course if the R3 isn't much of a change. I was really on the fence between getting a ASUS g53jw-a1, but since my desktop could use a new video card or two for SLI, I am thinking of just getting a M11x because I am always on the go, either at the lab at college working on a programming project, or house sitting for friends and family. The extra money saved on one of these could help land me a good gtx570 to replace a almost dead vga card!

Furthermore, I rarely ever play any new titles. I mostly stick to FEAR series, L4D, Crysis, WoW, and LoTRO. I think that the m11x r2 would be a good idea. The graphics card is more than good enough. I am more of a realist and having a gtx 460M, and a quad core i7 sounds like a good idea at first but when reality sets in within 6months the battery will be dead, it will have overheating issues, and dx11 games are glitchy as all getout for atleast another year. Usually takes the new version of directx to take around 2 years to fully mature into games.

So does anybody think a new reversion will be announced at CES2011 or do you guys think that the new years's sale would get me a good price on one??
