I know eurocom had this as an option on their X8100 Leopard since before the new year.

And yes, laptop's with this can hardly be called a laptop.

Thats why they're called "Notebooks"......for folks like me whom spend a lot of time on the road (my job) on planes and in Hotel Rooms these are perfect!!!!

Even the largest Notebooks fit fine on the tray on the plane (Cathay Pacific International has 110v / Internet available for those long flights) and every hotel room has a desk available with both 110v and High Speed Internet.....of course its not for placing on your "Lap" on the couch and Gaming.
Still not a Desktop Replacement as I certainly can't take any of my Desktops on the road....

a bag should not be more then 10% of you weight or it will damage your back. How can we carry these notebook in a bag then? Rolling bag But well...I think that's a stupid Idea. The point of getting a notebook is unpluged time. Even on internet it will drain your battery at the speed of sound. One more bad move for Nvidia IMO.

Actually I think it goes well past the line of "false advertising" into outright lying. Sadly it's nothing new but I agree that this should stop.

I'd get a laptop with one of these, but I'm too out of shape to lug something that heavy around all day.

Not really - the whole point is that it's a self-contained system, with no separate monitor or keyboard. Just flip it open and go. And whatever it weighs, it's still far more portable than a desktop. Whether you're looking for unplugged portability or not, that's another matter entirely.

This kind of thing was a godsend during the five years I spent as a long-haul truck driver - at the end of each day/night, I could just plug the unit into the inverter and fire up whatever game I wanted. And in the winter, it helped keep my truck warm
