I'm a big a Mac fan as anyone else, but there's no denying this is awesome...

    NO Compromises*

    *Except a laptop that needs wheels and is 5 times the thickness of a MBA.

    does seem a tad on the big side. sorta defeats the purpose of a laptop imo and id rather build a sweet gaming rig instead personally

    This has been posted before.....

    And like before, I can safely say this is not awesome.

    Desktop replacements aren't impressive, just depressing.

    I imagine it will seriously compromise your bank account.

    Meh, way too large for my liking. If I wanted something like that, I'd get a cart and wheel my desktop around with me. Much cheaper :p

    "Portable workstation."

    Key phrase there folks. This is not comparable to anything that Apple makes so don't start comparing it. My friend had a Dell portable workstation that was much less sexy but nonetheless a crazy desktop replacement. And it was massive. Oh lord it was massive...

    With 2 hard drives in there, won't that kill battery life?

    It's recent developments like this that make me have to remember I love OS X and can't leave it. I love the Apple software design, and its industrial design aesthetic, but I also use my macs as tools and certainly wouldn't mind a little more width or a few more seams if would bring more utility. I would love 2 hard drives (user replaceable, like the mac books) and quad core processing. And If I could get 16gb capacity to compliment it and help future proof it - that would be icing on the cake.

    The Clevo D901C has the same (mostly) specs and runs $1,800.

    Even though both of those notebooks are tanks, I really think, especially with the MacBook inevitably going Aluminum, Apple needs to stop focusing on making the MBP half an inch thick, and actually put some 'Pro' components in the thing.

    This laps-top (plural) is going to cost more than your entry-level BMW.

    I honestly can't make much sense of it's real-world application. There must be someone who needs to edit HD video on a plane, or draft some serious CAD 3D on the go.

    To each their own. :confused:

    I could so make excellent use of this thing. I work for a startup and everybody uses their own computers (and thus OSs) in the office. My MBP is quite a beefy machine, but I sure wouldn't mind something that could drive two HD monitors while cranking away at doing multiple compiles at the same time :)

    Then again, I don't want to carry a 20 pound weight around either.

    If apple had a version...I would buy it. I do a lot of post production on the go so it would suit me very well.
