The PSU under load for a laptop doesn't leave alot of headroom. I believe the 17 Sagar has a ~240w and mine is a 180w. That's fine for the 680m or the 7970M, and if a better card is released hopefully the architecture will shrink accordingly, and not demand more power. That said, the latest gen Sagars have these bigger power supplies, so the older gen would not be able to handle these cards due to PSU requirements.
