I don't think some people really understand the term "desktop" replacement. Don't you think that the desktop this replaces would have worse battery life and weighs more than 12 lbs? The beauty of this kind of laptop is that you can lug it on an airplane with you and set up your office in five minutes once you get to a new location. Tried doing that with a desktop? Lemme tell ya, I've done it and it sucks. You try explaining a Fragbox to airport security sometime. And even with that, even then, I had to put a keyboard in a checked bag and borrow a monitor when I got to where I was going (and the monitor I got was a freaking CRT). If you want a laptop to carry around in your Hello Kitty backpack so you can update your Facebook page, use a freaking smartphone or a netbook.

Why they didn't use one of the new Mobility Radeon 4870 x2's.  Although they do only have 1GB of memory, wouldn't it be faster?  I know that's what I would put in the ultimate gaming notebook

Keep in mind that Eurocom is targeting the Phantom i7 to the server/workstation market, and not to gamers. At least for the time being, anyway.

Perhaps the battery should be viewed as a built in UPS for a desktop system that only looks like a laptop?

How stupid is this honestly? 12 pounds with just one hour of battery life...ok ummm that's a desktop. Why spend so much a "laptop" that needs to be near a power source anyway when you can get a desktop that would probably just as comfortable as hot 12 pound "portable" computer? There are soooo many dumb dumb dumb computer builds out there it's amazing.

Hey this is Maximum PC and who cares about battery life. You could always wear a gas generator on your back in a backpack to power this thing. 

Or better yet the solar panels off the International Space Station should power this thing a little longer than the battery.

BTW you know about Newtons laws about equal and opposite reactions and stuff like that? Anyhow the suns rays hit the solar panels and the light is turned into electricity but what effect does this have on the sun?

There's a few more tons of helium in the sun because of it. And yes, it would have gone off into space anyway.

none, the light would have otherwise gone into space, somewhere on some planet they are going to see a star eclipsed, the solar panel infront of the sun
