As if those laptops weren't expensive enough already... Full loaded M18 with that kit could buy a hell of a nice desktop. Also, with those OC's, you won't be gaming on a battery :lol:

A cool feature that should make it run quieter, but OC'ing laptops? That's just silly.

You don't game on ANY gaming laptop on battery.

Those overclocks are not that great and could almost certainly be handled by air cooling methods. Just another Dell gimmick to take advantage of people with more money than brains.

Have hope there is new technology for batteries making them much much much better (Li batteries).

It's all due to this new wonder material called graphene, which are planar sheets of graphite just one atom thick. I wish i could link it, but the two big graphene breakthroughs i saw were both on the discovery channel. The first being some polish scientist making an industrial production method and other researchers incorporating graphene into Li ion cells, making them carry almost an order of magnitude more charge!

Gaming laptops might be realized within 5 years (and i mean ones you can game on not plugged into a wall!)

Running just low graphics on a laptop can produce massive heat. If it is hot on the outside I can only image the strain on the other internal componets. I would be curious if it helps put the lap back in the name rather then burntop.

As if the non cooled version wasn't heavy already. Eventually they'll need coasters to move that thing
