Default New Asus laptops, sporting the Santa Rosa CPU

Is this in the correct place?

I posted this at NCIX already, but it seems that Asus is finally going to be releasing some new laptops with new graphics solutions and Intel's new Santa Rosa processor

My System Specs

Default

"2GHz T7300 Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1440 x 900 screen and perhaps most excitingly, the new NVIDIA GeForce 8400G mobile graphics card with 896MB of RAM."

You could play some pretty demanding games on this puppy (one track mind)- alot of griping about the screen resolution in the comment threads though.

I've gotta say, Santa Rosa looks like some really exciting technology. I think when the Santa Rosa Macbooks come out I'll snatch one up.

Has anyone seen solid benchmarks with the new 8xM series yet? I can't seem to find any performance reports at all, and the laptops have been out since Wednesday.

Here's a preliminary review from Anandtech- they call it disappointing:
