    Wow, how do they keep that bad boy cool.

    If we thought the MBP was hot, this will scorch your lap.

    Since Dell bought Alienware they lost a lot of their edge and design. I hope Orgin captures that again with the ex-Alenware guys.

    and some of their system is cheaper than alienware


    and, the base model EON 17 (not -S version) has a intel i7 950 in it (OMGWTF)

    Laptops with desktop CPUs aren't really a new thing, they just aren't very popular. this is a 12lb beast which explains it, it's not very portable anymore.

    This is the dumbest idea ever. If I really needed a machine with those specs, I'd buy me a desktop. Besides, this damned thing weighs 12lbs which makes it as heavy and has only an hour of battery life which I think is rather generous considering they SLI this thing.

    Crap laptop and I don't think its ever going to take off.

    There's a small market for this. It's niche, but it still serves a purpose.

    Much like the Mac Pro. :)
