outside speculation do we have a "rough" idea as to when this may start appearing in laptops? From the slides I've seen, seems to be pretty amazing of a product. 780/Ti/290 speeds in a laptop is pretty incredible.

Where do you see those speeds in a laptop?
http://videocardz.com/52670/nvidia-announces-geforce-gtx-980-gtx-970-gtx-980m-and-gtx-970m

At the bottom they are giving a slide about "double" your frames compared to the 680M. Plus other rumors on notebookreview, and others are saying it should be 20-30% faster than the 880M which should be about right given the recent track records of refreshes. And if you put where the 880M is, +20-30%, or you double the 680M (both come to about the same), it would put it within that area.

Might actually be time to get another gaming laptop. I have a 650m in my current, but it's pretty decent since the resolution is only 1600x900. Overall though some games are giving it trouble so I've been debating it for a while. Might as well wait and get the new stuff :)

why not compare 880m to a 980m? why 680m? [redacted] marketing.

The GTX 680M was based on the desktop 670 that has been underclocked, basically a partial GK104 chip. The GM204 chip can put the hurting on even the GK110, and with lower power use than either, so it should be no surprise now that a GTX 980M would blow the 680M out of the water.

This. 770-level power is the minimum I'd expect from a 980M. It should be close to the 780, which is ridiculous for a laptop! Imagine the SLI laptops...

notebookreview already has it pinned between a 280x, and 290x.

It's scoring 9300 marks in Firestrike D:

this, the mobile part, should go in the "When is the last time you were this excited about a video card?" - thread.

Of course knowing Nvidia, this will be priced exceedingly high. The 680M I believe was between $600-$800 apiece, nevermind SLI. The Radeon 7970M was closer to $300-$400. Since Nvidia pretty well dominates the mobile dGPU market at this point, I can expect a very high price for their top end mobile GPUs.

Guys, do keep in mind that Maxwell seems to just run Firestrike better than Kepler.
