The sad thing is (4 me), there is no 3D support! Sad

For example, i bought mine (sig) for ~1550$, But that was 1 year ago

That Laptop, it...it's beautiful.

A nice piece of Technological Advancement there Wink.

The 5870 doesn't give off a lot of heat, it's just a Desktop GPU, so it needs vents like that, in fact, you'd need bigger vents for a 4870. Smile.

That would eat up battery life though, so I'd probably get it with a SSD. Since they take up less power.

Still, Crysis on a Lappy? FFFFFF.

Wait, no 3D support?

Say whaaaa

I think it might be referring to this, though I'm not certain.

Wow, a laptop with a decent cooling solution. I'm shocked. Too bad the mobile i7s have largely been *****...
