Awsome specs but the price is less awsome...

nVidia is up to this upgradable video for laptops i haven't read much about it but I think I read it on THW,I'm not sure.
If it works,I might buy one...

As long as you submerge the entire laptop in Liquid Nitrogen!

It's not a "mobile" 6800, in the sense of a some special low-power version. They've just crammed a regular 915P motherboard into a laptop form factor, and crammed a lot of other desktop components in there as well including a 6800. Which is impressive, from a cramming-lots-of-crap-into-a-small-space sort of way (and assuming it can run any length of time without going into thermal stress, there's some impressive engineering there too). But notice it weighs 5.2 -- kilos, not pounds, so you're not resting it on your lap (where it would likely burn you anyway). I'm sure you can measure the battery life in minutes. And I wonder if the sound system can be heard over the fans.

Still, if you want some kind of portable gaming rig, or you need to do wokstation work on site somewhere, and don't mind spending crazy amounts of money for it, have at it. It's kind of the laptop version of this.
