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.

I think the bottleneck would be gone if they made one of these that ran through thunderbolt if it becomes standard on PC laptops!

Wow how long has this technology been out. that's awesome. I'm buying this.

This will keep me from spending a thousand on a brand new laptop with a gpu.

I only have to spend 500 to upgrade my ASus laptop that has a nvidia gts 360 m

If so then we are talking.
That would be sick! One could plug in to express card and one could go in to your wifi card slot!

There are adapters for both!

MOBO SUPPORT? Think you guys forgot about that. I know of it because AMD gets shafted on that in the desktop world.
