    You know a notebook is too big when it has space for two hard drives. And when the screen is bigger than the one your 13.3" laptop is connected to when its at home. Wonder if anyone has complained about the battery life yet.

    Bystander: "So what's battery life like on that monster"
    Owner: "Well, it takes two batteries just to get through the boot sequence"

    Dell and Acer have had these for years...

    Not to mention the talk we've had here.

    A nice portable desktop computer. Looked at one a couple of months ago. Nice rig.

    Easier to move than a twenty inch iMac.

    If HP and Sony have Blu-ray drives and 1080p displays, Apple needs to get cracking.

    lol.... 20inch laptop display is pretty huge, i think people are starting to use notebooks as their desktops..but idk

    Still only 1920x1200...and costs $200.

    Up to 2 hours battery life††† OH BOY!!!
    ††† Battery life varies depending on product configuration, model, settings, loaded applications, utilized features. As with all batteries, maximum capacity decreases with time and use. Battery life times based on MobileMark 2007 battery benchmark. Reported times are with wireless functionality off.

    And I thought Apple was bad with making new switchers pay $19 for the remote...with HP you have to pay $19 just to get system restore discs.

    Only? Isn't that the highest they go for laptops? It's almost the highest they go for desktops, too. There are only a few monitors that go beyond that resolution.

    That is true, but it is the same as the Hi-Res 17" MBP while being 3 inches larger.

    What's the point in a battery if it only lasts 2 hours?

    If it's that big, they could just make it a little bit thicker and fit a desktop hard drive in it.

    They could also make the CPU bit seperate from the display, and increase the size even more to bring the price down. It should if anything make it a little easier to carry.

    Oh wait...
