I looked at these about a month ago, they look nice, throw a gtx 460 in one and you can have a portable laptop w/ 6+ hours battery life and can max most games at 720p.

I'll have to read up on it but the last one like this I saw suffered from a connection bottleneck.
Still interesting none the less.

Seems like a max is a 250watt draw GPU? I wonder if that means my GTX275 would be out of the question.
