This is definitely a very powerful laptop nervelessness and will take care of all of the items you just outlined effortlessly. Battery life would be about two hours maximum, and an hour or so if you're gaming.

 
If you can wait a few days, we're adding new next-gen GPUs which will make this an even better laptop!

Aw, no wai... Are DS laptops as customizable as your PCs? Because I just ordered an x17, so if those new GPUs come out I'd be interested in swapping the one I'm getting for a newer one...

@Alex sorry if i came across unclear but i was not referring to the x17E i was talking about the one before that the x17 that starts at level 1 at just about 1,500. Is there any updates for that one soon? or is that as advanced as that one will get for a while?

@Falkus, the laptops are customizable, you can always upgrade the GPUs as it's a standard socket.

@Siikzhot, no problem at all, and yes, the X17 will and the X15, however, they may not until we get close towards the end of April.

@Alex - I just called and told them to hold off on my build until the new cards are released. I hope I didn't mess everything up now.

I don't mean to be a pest but I thought there was no additional charge for the upgraded card. I just received an email that its going to be an extra $110 added to the build. Sorry again but I just want to finalize the order, thx again.

We're still working on updating the laptop line, it's taking a little longer than we expected. I would just put your order on hold if you wish until the updates are done. They should be live by tonight.

Is the $110 added to the total cost of the laptop before or after the cost of the old graphics card is removed?

Once the configs are up, it'll be easier to see the price difference.

The gaming laptop line has been updated! Big%20Smile

 
As a side note, the $100+ price from the GTX 560 to the GTX 675 is a upgrade to something that is far more faster card. Instead of paying the upgrade fee, customers can stick with the faster and similar price GTX 670 instead.
