For those interested, I've just ordered the New Dell Inspiron XP9300 Laptop, which can be used as a HTPC, Fast Gaming Rig, or a general all purpose speed Demon. The Specs are:- New Centrino 2 (Sonomo) 1.83 GHz Pentium M Processor\Chipset. Geoforce 6800 Go 256Mb PCI-X16 graphics 17" Wide Screen WUXGA TFT Display 1 Gig of DDR2 533Mhz RAM DVI (so I can hook it up to a Largescreen LCD) Integrated Bluetooth 2 Module (Wireless Kboard Mouse etc.) Plus the usual USB2, 1394, Wi-Fi & 80 Gig 5400rpm HDD It can also play media without booting into the OS (apparantly) and when used in conjuction with an ext. USB2 TV Tuner and MCE 2005 it can double as a great HTPC (Hopefully). Sorry to sound like I'm bragging, I'm not, havn't purchased a Laptop since 2001 and that's just bitten the bullett, also a few members have expressed interest in this and the forthcoming Inspiron XPS Gen2 Laptop.
