Windows 7: Sandy Bridge laptop - Which one to get?

Sandy Bridge laptop - Which one to get?

While I was at CES, I attended both the Intel and MSI keynotes. They made me want to chuck my 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro out the top floor of the Venetian.

Basically, I want a new laptop, with a screen size of 15.6" (or something close), with a new Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor, and the option to have both a HDD -AND- a SSD. My MacBook Pro has both, and both Mac OS X and Windows 7 are blazzinnnnggg fast, so I want every future computer purchase of mine to have both.

Any ideas? I was looking at the CyberPower Xplorer X6-9699, but it doesn't let you put 2 drives in it (maybe I could replace the optical drive with a caddy like I did to my MacBook Pro, but I'm not too sure). The Alienware m17x is nice, but it's too big and a bit pricey.

Any ideas? MSI had a lot of nice laptops, but their website isn't the greatest. I might give them a call tomorrow to see what's up. I really want to dump my MacBook
Pro. I can live without Mac OS X. If I really need it, I could always run it in a virtual machine, or just use a hackintoshed HP DV1410US that I have.
