While it might not be the world's "most powerful 17-inch system" -- like the recently announced (and similarly named) Area-51 m9750 -- the Area-51 m5790 is no slouch in the specs department. The SLI NVIDIA graphics are out, replaced with the more modest 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon X1900 but the rest of the specs are the same: Core 2 Duo processors are in, Blu-ray optical drive, dual HDD up to 200GB per and up to 2GB of dual-channel DDR2 667MHz RAM and a 17" WUXGA display capable of rendering a 1920 x 1200 resolution. The system ships with Windows XP, but is Windows Vista-capable so you can upgrade when Vista hits on January 30th (don't forget about your 50% discount).
