Just click the link and bow down. That's a truly innovative piece of hardware. There's every reason to shell out instead of building your own.

Pretty cool piece of machinery, but by the time I put the stuff on it that should be standard, the price had risen to $5,001. It's a bit ludicrous to say that the baseline software is WordPerfect with no Microsoft Office software.

I am not impressed.

Its a nice laptop, I guess. When it comes to laptops you do have to buy them rather than build them, and this would be a fine choice, but... its still a laptop. Complete with all the crappy limitations of a laptop.

My system which I recently built is better than this thing at a fraction of the price. Size and portability? Pfft, big effin deal. Who the hell REALLY carries their computer around anyway. If you have a legit professional reason to need a portable computer, you dont need this thing. This is pretty much an entertainment device, and last I checked I dont haul my playstation or TV everywhere I go, while paying a sick amount of money for the priviledge.

I see no limitations. Maybe you can point them out.

I don't get the point of it either. Its too damn big to use as a laptop and you can build a better desktop for a fraction of the price and get a larger monitor.

yeah, I've been scouting a new computer and saw that...cool design..but that price is stupid....for 3500 I shouldn't have to upgrade anything...it should be maxed out and made of diamonds...first interesting design I've seen on a "laptop" though...

Hmm, lets see

1) For all that people like to claim that laptops are somewhat "upgradable" to a limited extent, they are basically disposable appliances. In a system, if a new video card comes out that I want, I can buy it and sell last year's model off on ebay. If they come up with some new cool wiz-bang quad-layer dvd burner or whatever, I buy it and install in an empty slot. If you got a laptop, too effin bad, get rid of your now-useless pile o crap and buy a new one for another 2 or 3 grand.

2) May God have mercy upon you if anything breaks. If my memory goes out (which actually happened 2 weeks ago), I can buy a temporary cheap-o set of ram at Best Buy while waiting for the RMA. Hmm, not a good analogy since this is one of the few things you can replace on a laptop. Try power supply, or motherboard, or hard disk, or cooling system, or... hah, hell if the screen goes out, your f***ed. Meanwhile, I have an old dusty 17 " monitor that works somewhere in storage. Oh sure, you can plug the laptop into a monitor, but at that point, you now have a crappy gimped system instead of a portable laptop, so whats the point?

3) I am an overclocker. With a laptop your stuck with crappy stock speeds, while I'm cruising way ahead beyond the manufacturer's recommended specs, supported by a very steady power supply and a good cooling system.

I can think of more, but I'm tired. Anyone else want to add to the list of why laptops suck?

The good far outweighs the bad. Most users could care less about upgrading to the latest technologies or top performance. Basically just use it for a few years and buy a new one when its too dated.

They are extremely useful if you actually use the portability.

Shit ... Put 4 GB of RAM and dual HD in it with a few more bells and whistles and I got this:

Sub-total $8,140.00

For $8K this needs to come with a chick that pops out and sucks off your tech wang at a whim for 1year included.
