I am thinking of buying an Alienware m17x which I will use for gaming mostly.

At the moment you can order dual ATI 4800 graphics but I am wondering if I should wait for the 5800 version. If so any idea how soon they will be available from Alienware?

Many thanks

I believe there is a mobile 5870 out there, but you'd have to contact Alienware (Dell) and see if they'll give you an idea on when they plan to incorporate it into their laptops.

The 5870 is available in the new Asus G73 line. I chose it over the m17x for that very reason. The Dell/Alienware online support had no idea when they would offer it.
