  1. Origin has launched a new 17.3-inch desktop replacement notebook that should make quick work of today's finest games. Pricing on the Eon17 kicks off at $2,499, which gets you a 1080p LED-backlit display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7-930, a 1.5GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M, 6GB of RAM, a 250GB HDD, a DVD drive, along with the typical scope of connectivity and Windows 7.

    I know some people will buy these but again it goes back to more money than sense. I don't care if your an avid gamer who is never at home, it isn't a justifiable investment to buy a $12,000 laptop.

    This is really just beyond absurd. And (again) you could build a desktop that would smoke this like a cheap cigar for $800.

    I just don't get it. Is the portability really worth that much? Who buys these things??

    It has nothing to do with gaming or price at all. It's about who has the smallest ween, and would need a beastly mega-laptop like this to compensate for it.
  5. and some people have tiny weens, so small they create a black hole.

    Somehow I can't imagine this thing running any game for more than an hour on battery.
  7. Hec, you'd probably have something like this: 1) you unplug laptop 2) laptop informs you you have 30 seconds of battery remaining 3) you plug laptop back in :(
