I think OCZ missed a golden opportunity with this product. As I mentioned in my news post, they should have made the GPU customizable.

ASUS has been selling D-I-Y notebooks for years, so a little innovation on OCZ's behalf would have gone a long way towards establishing them as a player in the enthusiast-oriented notebook market.
