"When I read the title ,"6990" I thought immediately that AMD pulled out all the stops and went H.A.M (Kanye West ft Jay-z ) with a dual mobile GPU on one PCB, Damn. But its still impressive but its has to beat the GTX 580M. But I do Expect the GTX 585m waiting to come though, if this does what it claims to be.'
It really is impressive, but what will it mean for battery life in a notebook?
I personally can't see spending this amount on a laptop when you get so much more for the money with a desktop system. So, if it's a gamer you want, go with a desktop.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
I could not have said it better my self realneil. Though if you are a traveler and a gamer I could understand how a gaming laptop might attract a person.

When I'm traveling, I'm usually shooting pictures, driving, or meeting up with friends and family. I always get a room at the Hampton Inn if there is one nearby, because of how comfortable the beds are there and the stellar level of service I get. By the time I'm back in the hotel room,....I use the exercise room, the pool, check the email on my non-gaming laptop, and crash. By then I'm usually beat, so there's not much time for gaming anyway.
Lol that is true realneil. I remember last fall when I did my road gig in the SW united states I did not game at all. Of course I was driving from Nevada to California, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona then stopping and going in at 10PM then changing every register, computer and price gun in the given Walmart or Sam's club in a single night. I would then roll to the next city check into a hotel pass out and wake up that evening to do it again.
Oh and while Hampton Inn does have nice beds, but by the time I got to a bed I really did not care at all, and it was generally the first hotel I saw in my price range period!
It's not really true if you have multiple places you have to live at. Or a businessman who ends up traveling a lot. One other circumstance is Military. Anyways all of which must be willing to spend a significant amount of money on Gaming. It won't have anywhere near the bang for buck of a desktop, but gaming laptops are not without purpose. Not inside my (or most people's budget though).
Not everyone has the same life. I pretty much live in 2 houses that I travel between v. v. v. often. Would you expect me to un/pack my desktop all the time?!
Battery life is not important. Those laptops aren't designed to be used between A and B. They are designed to be used _at_ A and B.
As for the GPU performance on mobile...it's quite laughable. They're way too expensive for the little performance they give. Now the naming scheme is even worse trying to mislead people. Where the mobile GPU is usually so underclocked (or missing features or even a cores in this case) that they do half the performance, if not less, of their desktop counterparts. They should just come out with proper external desktop-grade GPUs already. Like that you don't have to worry about power (it would have its own power), about heat inside the laptop, having to replace the laptop if the GPU dies, upgrades etc. etc.
Lastly, if your aim is to look cool and annoy people with that ugly font then let me tell you that you're only succeeding on the annoying part.

I don't expect anything out of you, you don't matter to me.
Schmich:They are designed to be used _at_ A and B
Yeah, we know that.

Annoying you with my font? Aren't you a sensitive little bugger! You're welcome to fly on by and not read anything that I'm posting and I'll try to get over it. I use it because it's easier for ME to read. What you think about it is moot.
