It will be interesting to see how the graphics switching plays out. I could probably get 2 hours out of my m1710 if I had this. Maybe even more.

Switching GPUs is one of the things that interests me the most about laptops, it's been talked about for ages, lets hope with centrino2 that it will actually take off.
