Well this is meant to be a mobile workstation, not a gaming laptop. So, extremely powerful for CAD, 3D Rendering, engineers, architects, video editing. It is more geared towards people that need all that power, but travel often for business, and the laptop will either be plugged in at the hotel, or plugged in at whatever office they go to and present their work. It isn't meant for college students to bring to class, it isn't meant for teenagers that want to sit on the couch and surf the net, there are other laptops suited better for those purposes.
Oh, and $10,000 for a X8100 is nothing, the D900F they offer can easily hit $15,000.
