I struggle to understand how a huge display with tons of high performance hardware can be classified as "portable", but whatever. Nice specs for sure, not something I'd be interested in personally simply because I game on desktops. For portable productivity, I'd much rather use an ultrabook or Tablet + Keyboard.

Its portable because its self powered and cordless. It goes anywhere, does anything and does it well.

Desktops are fine, wonderful most times but you can't beat the utility of a gaming laptop. Love of gaming goes with you, keep it close to heart.

:D besides, you get bragging rights.

Gaming Laptops won't hit big unless they popularize swappable/upgradable mobile GPUs

If you travel a lot and need to game on the go this would be a great solution. I'd personally never buy a gaming laptop since I prefer a desktop but for people who need portability or don't have the space for a desktop, this is a good system.
