I might be the only person more impressed with the mention of Onkyo speakers an eSata,than the GPU.

Can't imagine this laptops battery life.

Some months ago system76 said it couldn't offer new laptops with Nvidia card because they couldn't work around the new generation of Optimus. What has changed now?

just cause the CPU is intel and the GPU is nvidia does not mean it uses the intel gpu

Can't imagine this laptops battery life.

was wondering about that. they didn't mention it. i mean 17" screen and dedicated (?) GPU and only 8 cell battery??!?! what is it 1 hour unplugget time or what?

and funny though they could have gone with AMD/intel hybrid or maybe even AMD/AMD but it seems they didn't went after hybrid at all. if it doesn't have Optimus or any power saving features it's basically just a desktop computer cramped into small space it would seem.

Actually battery life would not be a criteria for someone going for this laptop. It belongs to the "desktop replacement" category which means it's supposed to just sit on a desk and be plugged in most of the time. And maybe taken LAN parties...but a power source is always necessary for this kind.

I got it to look pretty for around $1800-1900*. But my standards are not that high since I have less than zero interest in gaming and the lowest end Core i7 more than suffices.

* assuming you can live with the screen at 1080p glossy without 90% NTSC.

I LOVE THIS THING. I will get this as my college laptop. I'm just happy 76 offers non intel graphics finally.

Lugging that beast to and around campus would be a pain if you ask me.

Weight and size isn't an issue for everyone; I opt for the biggest laptop I can find when I need a new unit. I once had a massive HP beast, with double-capacity battery replacement and a big secondary battery hooked up to the bottom. People used to mock its weight, but with 10 hours battery life and a decent screen, I thought it was awesome.

For many of us, the benefits of a laptop are a smaller all-in-one unit. Battery life, size and weight aren't concerns.

If you are primarily using a laptop as a desktop replacement (while only occasionally carrying it around) and will be hooking it up to an external monitor (dual monitor), then a 15.6" screen size would be more than adequate.

Of course it is a desktop replacement therefore battery life is irrelevant. Unless you to use it for body building why would you carry a laptop of this size around?

1000+ mhz GPU, as someone stated would be a dream for gaming, thats for sure :)

Just wonder how much heat this bugger would be producing in a cramped laptop cavity..
