No really, I know that some have this but why would you want all of that on a laptop. The battery life woudl suck, and it would be heavy.
I think I'm beginning to understand this now. So if I take the 4 spindles of 100 disks cds I have in my cabinet, and prop one under each corner of my laptop. I would have just enough room to slide my Desktop underneath my laptop. I could then put my monitor on top of my laptop. Let's see. That would be a 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 no wait, yeah thats right a 9 spindle system. Shoot, this is starting to kick @$$. I no longer have a need for my XPS because I can use my 9 spindle 450 mhz system. Granted I will need a foot locker on wheels to haul the system around. And a car battery to power the thing. Wait a second, I have an SUV, this could still work. If I take out the back seats and the front passenger seat, that should make enough room.
Now lets think about this. If I did all of that I could have Dell remove the USB ports and Firewire that I planned on using for the other devices.
Let's see, that would be 622.4 lbs, minus the .002 oz that I would save by removing the USB and Firewire ports. Ummm 622.4 - .002 = (carry the .008) 622.308lbs of sheer 4 wheel drive 9 spindle power.
Yes Logically this should work
