Their mobile naming scheme borders on false advertising.

Heh, this brings back memories of my old Hypersonic gaming laptop, with it's GTX7800M and 2.23GHz Centrino proc. Pulled about 130W through the brick while gaming, and it gave my palms a glossy shine from constant contact while typing. And it would overheat in less than a minute if I put on my lap and blocked the airflow vent. And that's small taters compared to what this would do, I'm sure.

I wouldn't consider gaming on my GTX260M on my Lap nor do I run 3DApps on my 6 Cell Battery...anyone purchasing these Notebooks with high end GPU's will know better than to try either.....get an $600 Notebook and play Majong on your Lap with your Battery........certainly not Crysis etc etc etc.....

Well if you want to nuke your nuts this will probably be the result of that action gaming with the laptop in your lap

I am guessing any laptop with this in will be too heavy and too large to effectively use in your lap. Definitely a desktop replacement only.
