The Kobalt Comanche seems kind of pointless: It's so heavy and the battery life is so bad that you wouldn't actually want to take it anywhere with you. Having experience with similarly overpowered/sized laptops I can say that you don't even want them to be sitting on your lap for any real period of time lest you get burned.

If you want a machine for LAN parties, you could built an infinitely more expandable solution in a MicroATX form-factor for much, much, cheaper. Spend the extra cash on a good bag for the peripherals, or use it to buy video cards and RAM much better and less expensive than you'll find for any notebook.

And why isn't it blue?
