    I like some of the numbers for adding stuff from the basic package.
    £32 to add a floppy drive.
    £58 for a webcam (apparently £3k+ laptops dont come with webcams as standard these days...)
    £49 to setup RAID1 (thats after you pay over the top for the actual HDD's)
    £127 DVD writer...

    Oh, and unless you want to pay an extra £107 you only get 1 year warrenty.

    Wait is this where we re-introduce the battery backpack?
    hmm lets think about 4 Li Po car batteries should get about two hours of gaming out of this, weighing in at about 30kg in batteries alone.....

    I hope that £12000 gets me either a golf cart or a sturdy servant to lug this thing around for me.

    EDIT: Holy 220w power supply brick batman! That thing alone probably weighs more than some notebooks.

    True, but Mac fans will tell you that the mac book is still faster...

    Its a desktop Core i7 (Just like 'laptops' offered not so long ago with the core i7 920).

    As mobile workstations go this thing will be an absolute monster althought its a shame there is no mention of CF (CF HD5870m would be excellent - roughly on par with a HD5850/70).

    I've seen some look-a-like monsters but this is over the top, completely bonkus! Can I haz one?! It's useful for some solidworks creation on-the-fly
