    I can see this would be good for me, if I ever decide to go and visit friends in Amsterdam. The flight is only about an hour long, the time I can actually use electroncis for is probably about 45 minutes, so it'd be fine, for a quick bit of gaming. Certainly better than my m1330, which likely gets taxed by Max Payne. Never go Intel for graphics...

    Oh, and a laptop like this would replace my main PC. After all, it's probably much more powerful (quad Xeon, versus OCed E6300, and dual G92s over single HD 3850). Although I'd likely make a stand for it to run cooler, although the four fans inside look like they do a somewhat okay job of cooling it.

    Just don't plan to host a LAN in that flight. :laugh: , so much RFI could mess with the flight's instruments.

    We here at M-Tech absolutely agree with you. We market the same laptop under our brand name and know its pros and cons.
    The 8800M is such a good video card that adding another at best only gives you about 14% increase in performance and only at the most extreme times. Yes of course that is when you want it, but you must consider the price you pay for that 14% increase. It is almost $700. Choke gag :eek: Think twice before you do that. SLI makes more sense if you are using a card that performs less but the 8800M hardly needs any help. I saw other responses about the size and battery life. Don't think of this as a laptop, think of it as a portable desktop. To market this as a laptop just invites well founded criticism. Nothing can touch the D901C (MTECH D900C) for performance but if you have an issue with battery life or portability, you may be better off looking at a laptop such as the MTECH M570UR or a laptop like it. Still plenty of video power because it too uses the 8800M GTX but it runs on the Penryn CPU and soon will be up and running on the Intel's Montivena. All the posts here seem well thought out I only wish Laptop manufacturers did not damage a laptops reputation by trying to cross market it in an area that just does not make sense. If this laptop were marketed as a desktop replacement then I suspect only positive comments would come forth. Because this is one heck of a mobile workstation
