The studio behind Swordfish will flip out when they see this, and it will go on to inspire the sequel (FINALLY!): Swordfish 2: Even Cheesier

I feel it is quite impractical. While it is branded as a laptop, I don't see how mobile this will be. The size of the screens are not big too, and I rather have bigger screens but lesser screens, especially when you consider the price premium this will come with.

For when you want none of the pros (portability) but all of the cons (loud, gimped specs, limited I/O, etc.) of a laptop.

Seriously, at this point, just get an SFF pre-built or something. You can get a decently powerful Prodesk from HP that is the same size as this but runs desktop hardware with expansion slots and won't overheat at the desktop.

Y'all wanted more screen space right, I put monitors on my monitors, then stuck some monitors on those monitors on the side for you.
Bet that's one quite ass salesroom.

Need to be a wrestler just to lift the shit.

I blame it on shitty UI designs. Years ago you could comfortably work on an 800x640 screen. Now you need a 4K monitor just to open outlook. Then 4 more monitors for the 15 other portals you need to log on to...

This is obviously for a very niche market and for 99% of use would be pretty useless.

Could be useful for those law enforcement agencies that have multiple feeds going on at the same time for on-the-go surveillance etc. Since the company is expecting people to enquire directly it kind of speaks volumes about the type of customers they expect to be interested in something like this.

That's a good point, I can also see it being useful in a scientific setting where someone *needs* to drag a multi-monitor setup into exotic places with minimal trouble. You could be a geologist working deep in some cavern or near some volcano and it wouldn't look too out of place there.

For some reason it makes me think of Borderlands Claptrap.
It looks like something he would fail to hack and than more bots show up.
