It looks really bulky to me. Almost *too* bulky. Still, I've gotten used to lugging around my 8890 and I'm starting to think I'm in need of an upgrade. That's the first widescreen model that I could live with the port placement. Not sure why they stacked the optical drives, but I guess they did have to cram a lot into that behemoth. I'm not too bothered about it having an AMD either, so it's all dependant on price and what I can get for my 8890.
