To see a laptop like this without an SSD as standard is kind of a disappointment. Yes the prices are still quite high in comparison, but 128gb SSD can be found for $150 these days. 240gb models are probably more realistic choice for most people, but I'd rather see them take a hit on the initial profits to really say they have something unique. The specs are not bad, and they seem rather well balanced but you can bet battery life isn't stellar and an SSD as standard would probably add a good 30-45 minutes if not more to the overall life...if not at least offset the added burden of that somewhat clever LCD tacked on :p

For what it's worth, I really do like the idea of having a LCD trackpad, and think it would be even better to see a whole keyboard using such technology.

I don't get it. People constantly complain about price in the U.K. and Australia. Hey, this is a free world, if you don't like it, just move elsewhere?!? Sheesh! :mad:
Id be glad to, going to pay for my moving costs and get me a job?

The point is we get screwed over in this country with prices even though our dollar is worth more then the USA :shadedshu

After looking at this more I must say I really like its looks and it would be a fun thing to take to show your friends(If I won the Lotto). Now its not worth its price but you do have to realize how thin this is for its power and as a NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M may not be enough for ultra gaming its still not bad and a NVIDIA GeForce 580 would most likely create to much heat for a normal heatsink.

I would put this is in the category of Everyday Multimedia Thin and Powerful. like a Dell xps 17z It has more stuff and its only $1299:nutkick:

I could pick up 3 laptops with the same video card and current-gen i7s for the price of one of these. It does look pretty sweet though.

Love it how they advertised "pc gaming is not dead" and how everyone is frustrated with "shoddy consol ports". WELL YOU CAN'T PLAY ANYTHING ELSE ON THIS!:banghead:
I was truly waiting for something innovative that would give an edge for the pc users.:cry:

OMG is this post serious ?
Where is anything gaming about this ?????? :confused:

Even CrApple has better gaming laptops for less than this.

Price: US $2799.99
for
NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M with NVIDIA Optimus Technology

WTF ?? :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

$1600 xoticpc 6990m with i7-2630 is a thousand times more gamer than this piece of Razer junk.

Maybe the price is wrong and it should state the same as Dell for the same hardware $499 or maybe $279.99 is more like it.

said Mooly Eden, VP and General Manager of the PC Client Group, Intel. “Bringing together our engineering forces and utilizing our fast Intel Core i7 processor

What donkey s*** is this guy smoking ????

LOL yeah and we are complaining about the primitive single ATI6990m in laptops and concerned about maybe getting xfire ATi6990m but only the clowns Alienware 18" has this option for a $1000 more than a xoticpc $1600 ATI6990m 17" laptop.

I don't see how it's the first true gaming laptop.
No shit I have seen ones running crossfire 5000 series. I'd take it, but there are a lot better ones, The SSD is a nice added feature.

Maybe they'll release a cheaper version in the future without the over-the-top keyboard...

Hell. I know they're comparing this to a tank of a laptop, but it's just pitiful. I'd rather get me a damn tank for the same price!

SLI GTX 560m's with 6gigs DDR3 and an i7 950 (desktop). Those large cases offer something this doesn't... plenty of damn USB and other connections.
Maingear Titan 17
Price... $2799 USD.


The only thing they're selling is the keyboard and the body... and the body doesn't seem that great. It'll run hot sooner than later if you actually game on the thing. The aluminum absorbs heat quickly, but with more powerful cards (and the GTX 555 running at 1080p will STRUGGLE on most games) it'd just turn into a cooking surface.

2800$ for THAT? Yeah... no, not gonna happen.

So +1 for everyone saying it's overpriced. Plus, the keyboard and trackpad might be nice at first, but it'll probably get boring and gimmicky after a while.

It's all in the title

They never said it was the "The World's First Gaming Laptop"...

They said "The World's First True Gaming Laptop!"

That makes all the difference in the world because now they are basically implying that all previous makers of gaming laptops were fake and lying to us and trying to pull the wool over our eyes...:eek: and not like them because they are good and will prevail over evil, etc, etc...

the only new age of gaming is Windows 8 which will make or break PC Gaming. the laptop is nice but they have already priced it out of the market.

0.88" is thin, yes, but that has sacrificed both CPU & GPU. This laptop is not qualified as gaming laptop. Even my current 15" non-gaming laptop can perform faster than this in gaming.
