And we all know the story of the 200m series..
So whats the story? Curious as my Notebook is brand new with that 200M Series (GTX 260M) and what terrible things am I to keep my eyes out for? As mentioned, they run hot, but thats the trade off for high performance and a Notebook.

^^^^^ Huh!? please speak English, that didn't come close to answering my "quoted" question. btw...I'm 45 yrs old and even I know their is no comparison between a GTX 260M and my teenage sons GT 9800M....so I still further don't get your comment..sorry man.
But whatever, nVidia ha always re-badged / re-named whatevr you want to call it, as a consumer you simply have t do your homework prior to purchasing...no biggie in my books.

A GTX 260m is a slightly higher clocked GTX 9800m on a 55nm chip. Shouldn't be that much faster then a 9800m GT

^^^ My sons is a GT 9800M not a GTX, ...... 65nm vs 55nm, higher clocks and 112 shaders vs 96....the BIG difference is my Core I7 and 4GB DDR3 1066 ;)........the I7 runs at 2.9 Ghz and the RAM at 1150 Mhz......quite a Notebook for gaming but it does get toasty!

I wouldn't necessarily say "fail"..!?
You prepared to drop 1.5k to 2k on a Notebook? My G51J with a 260M Card presently runs any game out thier on the Market with Med to High settings @ 1920 x 1080 Res......
I ceetainly wouldn't call that performance a "fail".....
