outlet item; just checked here in Georgia, none available anywhere - so I dunno what the deal is with Chicago, but probably not available anywhere else in the country.

Even without the graphic card, that processor, ram, and screen size would still be a good deal for 568. That graphic card makes it an awesome deal.

I really want this lappy, but sucks when a customer backs out on you on a build you did :(

Got it all setup, this thing is sick fast! And the resolution is 1440x900 but it isnt that bad. I tried DoD:Source and it didnt even stutter! I gotta get Crysis installed and see how it does!

I have a friend who bought one in January and luckily he ended up getting one of the early models that had the 1920x1200 resolution. But then again he paid the full price for it too.

The 9800 gts mobile chip has 64 stream processor at 600mhz, the desktop chip is much faster and has 128 stream processors.

The 9800gts mobile is abou 10% slower than the 9600gt desktop chip (600 mhz shader vs 650)

Remember though the resolution is 1440x900 which only has 56 percent of the pixels that a 1920x1200 screen thus having a gpu that is half the speed of its desktop contrapart is less of a big deal.

a store about an hour away from me had 3 about an hour after the thread was posted. I called and asked to buy all of them but they said one per customer. I got one and by the time my family members called to get me the other 2 they were gone.

Great heads up OP. Atleast i got myself one even if i dont have any to sell on ebay.

3dmark06 9300 @ default settings after removing bloat ware and updating graphic drivers

Edit: tryd calling around this morning and the lappy is now removed from all of the stores in my regions computers.

Grabbed the last 2 at store 492, Carbondale Illinois. We're about 90 minutes from St Louis and they are high and dry as of this afternoon. Setting one up now, very nice first impression, especially for the price.
