    In the coming months, especially when the towers come out- will we see more customization in terms of processors (dual 2.0 ghz isn't really that fast, even for a laptop) and the graphics card? I'm especially wondering about the graphics card now that we can run windows- I'm hoping we'll be able to get something top of the line to play games on windows.

    o_O (hehe always wanted to do that). Dual 2.0Ghz is bloody fast when compared to the pentium M processor. If your comparing the Dual 2.0 Ghz to a Pentium 4 3.6Ghz, or an AMD 64, your battery is going to run out REAL fast with them, and your laptop will get hot real quick.

    2.16 GHz Core Duo is very fast (it is Intel's best mobile processor at the moment). Don't fall for the MHz myth . ;)

    And what's wrong with the 'ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 256MB GDDR3 memory'? Seems pretty nice to me.
