Looks a bit too blocky for my liking personally. secondly how thick is that laptop??

good thing though if that laptop does go kaput - you can use it as a serving tray due to it being so sturdy.

that is one honking laptop, would be nice to get a full size VGA in there, but considering the space constraints GTX580M SLi isn't anything so sneeze at.

Sometimes I wonder why these manufacturers bother to put in a battery when that space could be better utilized for something else (another HDD?).

Yeah, not like the battery will last for more than 15 mins when playing a game...
Anyways I personally like those desktop replacement laptops; to bad that the upgrade possibility is so limited...and expensive.
