I appreciate it would add even more time to the review process, but it's something that I like to see in a notebook review.

Tell me, how many of bit-tech readers are interested in buying let alone wanting this?
You said something about moving this beast around the house... to game? so, instead of gaming in your room, you game at the kitchen, then living room... and why? what difference is there? so you can game half heartedly while eating your dinner? or game while spending time watching TV? And honestly, I don't find moving a computer (I have mid tower) extremely hard or "cluttering" with wires...
Bottom line is this is impracticle. I'm not saying no one wants it, how many of us are interested in buying this... I mean, by reviewing that 19" beast and that Alienware system, everyone's already sick of these portable desktops... how do I know this? This article has been up for a day, yet there are only a few comments...

c) You can show off to other gaming nerds that your laptop is better.
However, i do agree with you. A desktop suits me fine personally.
