With that said, don't waste your money, you could buy a complete badass gaming desktop for around $1,400...
You know, I know exactly how you feel, told my bro that his HTPC I sent him is great, and all he needs is a monitor, and monitors have superior quality over HDTVs...
He ignored me and bought the HDTV cause it was cheaper. >.>
I said dude, but all you need is a monitor, you already have the graphics card and TV tuner in your HTPC! You sacrificed quality because of your ignorance, you paid for the Graphics Card and TV Tuner again in the HDTV and got a really low quality smaller TV instead of a 23" HD Monitor of high quality. He said, but it's an 21.5" HD LED TV! I just facepalmed..
Some people JUST WILL NOT LISTEN NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY!
So there's no such thing as a gaming laptop and yet a medium-spec gaming laptop($999) will handily outperform your sig rig in both CPU and graphics assuming stock settings for both.
Also, monitors and HDTVs use the same panel technology, even in-plane switching. I don't know where you get your information, but stop getting it from there.

You do realize that those "crappy mobile GPUs" are variants of desktop parts but are usually under clocked and under volted right? Even entry-medium end GPUs will play every game just fine at .9 megapixels with a few multiplications of ant-aliasing.

Like the review says though. It's a good effort for a company's first try.
Razer is a relatively small company, so they can't afford to subsidize their products through other ventures like Asus, Dell, HP, etc. can.
A 11-13" Ultrabook would have been more profitable given that Intel already subsidizes them until manufacturing cost can be driven down. Hence, we have Ultrabooks shipping this year for $800 that would have normal been $1200+. Perhaps Razer is waiting on this chance?
