I'm pro-laptop and this is dumb. This is just stupid. xD Nothing should be above 17.3" for any reason. I mean... I... I'm floored at this design idea... It's so dumb. rolleyes.gif

...and space for as much as four terabytes of SSD storage, and you have a laptop that’s beyond obscene.
Sorry, that's not that much. I could get 10TB of SSD storage in my Clevo P650 right now, and it's 2.5KG! 2x 1TB M.2 SSD (SATA only, sadly) and 2x 4TB Samsung 850 Evo's... I haven't got that much, because I can't justify or afford £2500(!) on two SSDs, but the potential is there... wink.gif

Although I will agree that 1080SLI in a laptop is rather crazy/awesome. Shame about the screen; I'd prefer a 4K to a 21:9 (however 21:9 is nice for some stuff...)

I am the opposite really.

I find anything under 20" very unpleasant, well when it comes to gaming at least..

this is fancy, but a peasant like me gotta stick to desktop still. let's hope pascal mobile is a step in a good direction though.

Mechanical keyboards on laptops are so damn ugly with all that 'empty space' between keyboard and screen.

How far away are you going to BE from the screen? I'm maybe two feet from the screen here and I've got a 15.6" machine.
