Is it possible to gain something when one removes something? iBUYPOWER is proud to announce our ultra thin gaming laptop, the 17-inch Battalion Ultra-thin - where all excesses were trimmed, leaving only absolute performance.

Created from the ever increasing need to be mobile and be nimble, the new Battalion Ultra-thin sports everything a relentless gamer could want: a theatrical 17.3-inch Full HD 1920x1080 screen, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 700-series graphics, the latest Intel Core-i7 processors, and excellent battery life. And while all that's on the inside of the new Battalion hails to performance junkies, it's what's on the outside that shows "less is more" is a great thing. Built around strong yet striking dark aluminum, the new Battalion is the thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop.

I don't mean to bash, but doesn't the fact that it is a 17.3" model diminish the advantage of having an ultrathin laptop?
Offcourse thinner is always better (without taking the cooling 'challenge' into account), but it seems rather trivial for such a big laptop.
Also the thickness is 0.85" fyi, it is not mentioned in the article.
