i have a p7811 fx. and i love it. but now i kind of want to buy a second laptop and am hoping gateway will come through soon with some of these features.
for one, i'd like to see a bump up from the p8400 to the p8600. this should be an easy task to achieve without changing the price of the laptop.

according to that link the p8400's and the p8600's are selling for the same price. so that would be logical. although a p9600 would be nice
secondly, i'd like a bump up from the 9800m gts 1GB to a 9800m gt 1GB. this is based off of the current FX being sold, as my p7811 has 512MB.
third, i'd like to see an even further bump in hard drive capacity. the 7811 has a 200GB 7200 rpm drive, the 2805 (not to be confused as inferior due to the lower model number) has a 320GB 7200 rpm drive. so how about that nice seagate momentus 500GB 7200 rpm drive?
fourth, an upgrade to the optical drive to give it blu ray reading capabilities. i don't care about burning blu ray.. i just want to watch them on that nice 1920x1200 resolution screen these laptops come with.
and lastly, fix the stupid volume buttons. instead of that touch sensitive slider, a simple plus and minus button would work better, but i'd even prefer a dial which i can physically turn.
ultimately, i'd be happy with a p8600, 9800m gt, and a blu ray video playback as well as a fixed volume controller
