2 weeks ago, we published our review of the 17" Asus A7J laptop. In that review I stated that the primary SODIMM isn't upgradable, even though Asus' product page states it.

CNet has posted a review of the Dell XPS M2010 portable computer that was first spotted at E3 a few weeks back. This computer isn't quite a laptop considering it comes with a large base unit and a bicep-popping 20 pounds with the AC adapter! It has some sexy specs though...
