AbN610, hold your tongue and don't bash a machine that wasn't built for you. I move a lot (every 4 months, sometimes less), and since I'm usually flying across (or between) continents, I can't very well take a lot of things with me. A laptop like this is built for people like me, the ones who don't necessarily want something mobile in the sense of taking it to Starbucks, but more mobile in the sense that I can take it on board a plane with the rest of my luggage.
Personally, the performance isn't enough for me, given how much I game. But for many of the other people I know in my situation, this is a great laptop for them. People like us can't carry TVs around, so we need something that will double as our TV and home-away-from-home workstation. This laptop IMHO is a great idea, and if it had a more powerful graphics card I'd be all over it.
