    I’ve got a Gigabyte M1405, the earlier version of this with Intel SU7300 at 1.3GHz and overclock to 1.7GHz.  The earlier docking station has a GT220 desktop video card and it’s good enough to multiscreen with (with the dock, there are two HDMIs, 1 DVI and one VGA sub D, plus the notebook’s screen!).  The PC runs for 3 hours/5 hours with secondary battery, and if this new guts setup does what’s promised, it’s twice as good.  I want it.
