    Even a big ol' gaming laptop is still a hell of a lot more portable than a full size ATX gaming case plus a 22"-30" screen...

    The battery is pointless, why do they even bother with them still? Who uses one of these without plugging it in? They should ditch the battery and stick in extra cooling or something....

    why isn't overclocking even an option for the mobile workstation?
    is it cause of battery life?

    A laptop is best as a small and light portable computer .. you can get them that way now and there is many to choose from
    A laptop is best as a portable version of a desktop rig .. you can get them that way too

    Improving one leads to improvements that can be used in the other, cooling, procesors, power requirments, batteries .. I think there's room for both camps

    Mainly because of cooling, I believe.. Understandably, Notebooks don't get a lot of airflow.

    Having had a £2000 Dell XPS gaming laptop a few years ago, and then moving to my first custom built PC, I can confidently say that uber powerful laptops are a total waste of money. You're better off spending the £2k on a decent desktop and the rest on a 15.4'' laptop with reasonable power.
