DO WANT. Looks .. pretty large, though.. Not sure the idea of portability is registering with Eurocom at this point.
I've been seeing eurocom product releases on this and other sites for a couple of years now. They are all over powered over priced machines that look like real thick IBM laptops from 10 years ago.....
But my real concern is.... Who the hell owns a Eurocom?!? Do they even sell these in the states? Does anyone in the states own one? And how many do they sell a year here??????
Seems to me like it's a bunch of advertising for something we don't buy here.....
That is a desktop replacement if I ever saw one. Anyone who tried to carry one of those beasts around should have a chiropractor on speed dial.
Despite the name, Eurocom is a Canadian company, based in Ottowa, so I suspect most of their kit is sold in the United States (they are not, AFAIK, represented here in Sweden). Even though they do make notebooks, most of their production seems to be desktop replacements, which can certainly make for some impressive specs, but I have to question their uutility for most categories of users, who would probably be better off buying a high-end desktop for applications demanding that sort of machine and a much lighter, more portable machine for use when travelling. Given the cost of the maxed-out version of this monster - three large - I suspect there would be money to be saved, even leaving aside the issue of chiropractor bills....
I can't really criticize the weight because I own a similarly sized, overpowered laptop. I can certainly appreciate it's portability, even if it does have to be plugged in nigh-unto-constantly. If you want an easily portable machine go get a MacBook Air. You won't be gaming on it though. Or doing anything graphic intensive...You could probably watch DVDs, but besides that, I'm hitting a wall.:p
