Does this notebook exist?
I'm looking for a new notebook. I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Am I just looking in the wrong places or something, or does nobody even make what I want? Here are my preferences:
1. Under 17". 15" is best, 16" might be okay.
2. LED backlit screen.
3. Intel CPU. Those Turions just aren't all that great, but if it meets all the other requirements I might be okay with it.
4. Radeon mobility 4830 or 4860 GPU (M97/RV740) or GeForce GTS 150M or 160M (55nm, what, G92b? G94b?)
5. 6lbs or less. I might stretch to 6.5lbs on a 16" model.
I didn't think that was that all of an order but it seems like it is, because nobody makes it. I really like Dell's Studio XPS 13 and 16, but they haven't been refreshed to newer GPUs yet. :(
Weren't the Studio 15's just updated with new GPUs?

They're the OEM for quite a few manufacturers.
Yep. They default to a GMA4500, but you can get them with Radeon Mobility 4570s (256 and 512MB options). Unfortunately, the 4570 is based on the RV710. 80 stream processors, 8 texture units, 4 ROPs, 64-bit memory interface. Like a quarter the performance of the 4670, and 6-8 times slower than the RV740 based mobility 4830/4860 (which are the 4770 on the desktop).
