A very niche market. Certainly cool, but how often do you need something like this?

Here's the answer they sent me when I emailed them asking about the battery in this model:

"We have a 6-cell Li-ion that offers about 1-hour and 10-minutes with 2-screens. We are working external flat battery options that offer 5-6 additional hours and weigh about 2-pounds."

That's about what I expected for battery life. I was hoping for 2 to 3 hours though. But the external battery is nice.

I understand the whole arguement about how it may not be the most wise investment to purchase high-spec laptops, suggesting cheaper, more powerful PCs, but I have a certain desire for portability. When I think ultra portable, I think netbook. When I think portable, I think easily movable. The reason I would invest in a high-end laptop is so that I can take it from desk to desk and city to city with ease. I never see people lugging around their desktop PC in their cars, or stuffing them into backpacks.

That said, This laptop is a good portable computer that would be valuable to musicians and video and graphic artists in particularly (or at least I would use it for such functions). And I was shocked seeing it priced at under $2k for entry. I was expecting around mid-$2k.

What's the battery life like? Can it even run on a battery?

one screen slides out from behind the other. leave the one screen out and turn the other off.

its ten pounds, at least some of that has to be battery.

Good question! Especially since they don't even mention the battery inb the specs for these on their website. I have emailed them and asked about it.

It probably has battery-saving modes that utilize low processing speeds to extend the battery life. Anyone that buys these sort of laptops expecting and relying on longetivity of battery should know better.
