This isn't the first laptop to have dual GPU's is it?

"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."

This is an incredible laptop that has strong hardware, But who is the designer? maybe i haven't been around the block enough to recognize the works by origin, is it a gaming laptop company? maybe comparable to say aienware?

Looks real nice.. Not a buy for me as I like to game on a desktop, but it's definitely a step in the right direction for "portable" gaming..

Might be a bit big. (:

That thing is a beast. I'm not sure i'd ever pay that much for a system I couldn't upgrade like I can a desktop but it is pretty amazing to have that much power in a laptop.

Maybe not the lottery but a huge bonus at your job would certainly help.  Like to see benchmarks just to see what it can do. Wonder if the battery will last more than 20 mins?
