yeah and the SLI config. though thats probably what makes it such a short battery life anyway. maybe its 60 minutes under load. all i can see that being good for is a desk space saver and portability, but not for on the move.

Lmao!

I guess it's only advantage is gaming from a sofa in the living room while watching TV... can't do much more than MMO's though from the couch. FPSs take concentration and accuracy that can only be achieved through sitting down at a desk.

Then again, no MMO I'm aware of would benefit from more than two cores.

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
