Desktop replacements are a small niche, so it's natural they charge a premium. Most people have no need to drag a high performance computer with them.

Love Your comment dude, I own a Dell Inspiron 9100/XPS Gen 1 which is a Desktop/Gaming Laptop and never had any cooling or stability issues with it. (Ideal Chassis Design for todays high end laptops due to cooling design) It currently is upgraded to Windows 7 HP 32bit.

They are great for overseas use or even on the road use.

I say this is the first time to see a single company offer both NV and AMD GPUs for their laptops, Im assuming the PCB interface on the laptop and on both AMD/NVs MGPUs are now universal like PCI Express is in a Desktop?

Some, not many, airline companies allows 8 kg plus laptop for carry ones, but yes not something that you what to have on your lap for a long time. 110 lbs, now we are talking ;)

MXM is a like a slot in port, like ram is on a laptop. Comes from MXM Type-I through MXM Type-IV or HE (can't remember) and is cross compatible with both brands. The only reason where this is not applicable is with many low-mid range mobile gpus where most likely they'll be soldered on.

My Alienware weighs just about as much and when I used to carry it with me (+ almost another kg for the power supply) it wasn't much of a burden. I used to carry it everyday to school and back in its backpack...a backpack will help LOADS with the weight, use a messenger bag and your shoulders are going to ache.

Honestly, this things price is amazing, CF 6970 setup for $1899 US, CF 6990's just over 2k, thats not bad at all.

I have the first gen Dell XPS 1710 laptop that weights 6kg. Never had any problem in airports with it. Nobody will weight it if you say it's just the laptop.

Anyways, the resolution is to big for such a small display; I know because my Dell has 1920x1200 for 17". Even if I choose the DPI 150% still everything is to small and crappy. Not to mention that I cannot play any game at full res...I mean from the new ones...

no 6990 = desktop 6870

6970 = desktop 6850 give or take

its essentially a laptop with low clocked sandybridge + 6870 crossfire in terms of the i7 extreme thats in it + 6990m xfire

Don't get those GPU numbers confused with their desktop counterparts.

You don't use battery power when gaming, usually lappys go into power saving mode where their performance (esp. GFX) is lowered, you can turn it off but...

The battery is probably only there in-case you kick the plug :laugh:
