 Yes, I am talking about the "mobile" ones for laptops...  

I think the only one Fermi mobile GPU out now is the 480M and it is not in any affordable laptops yet.

Fermi based GPU's from Nvidia have been shipping since April under the 

Geforce 400-series GTX designation. When I picked up one of the cards 

last month there were two models available, the Geforce 470 GTX and 480 

GTX. The 470 runs for around $300.
