The inside isn't the ugly part....it's the lid that was so ridiculously ugly the first time around. The problem remains that the thing is an obese laptop. I thought my 9400 was thick...look at this thing.
Physics card=marketing fodder
SLi=Nice (but available in other notebook brands)
Battery life=Laughable compared to the 1710 I'm sure
Port placement & availability=Severely lacking
Numpad=(smaller keys) and offset mousepad to compensate -ugggh...
Colors=Nice touch but not the main reason I will not buy one
(wonders where the hydraulic lifts are for raising the screen lid!)
this laptop mimics that 17 inch alienware. Can't remember the name, I think its the clevo case model (not entirely sure) that thing is thick and it was able to hold dual hard drive, sli graphics, and dual cd/dvd drives. Its thick, but I think at the same time they are trying to promote airflow for when the 8800's come out for the laptops
