Asus W90Vp-X1 Proves You Don't Need a Desktop for Raw Power (But It Helps)

The fellers at Computer Shopper just gave a rave review to this 5kg 18.4" monstrosity from Asus, saying it "raises the bar for all comers." Isn't it just a desktop in disguise?

Look at the breakdown: Sure, it's got a 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 and 320GB 2.5" hard drive, but it also has 6GB of RAM and dual ATI Radeon HD4870s. No wonder it "sets new 3D-graphics and productivity-speed records." Computer Shopper goes on to praise its "beautiful HD display, a powerful audio system, and an easy-to-use overclocking utility" plus a "generous" warranty, all to the tune of $US2,200. It's seriously impressive engineering, especially at that price; Asus should be proud. But man, why wouldn't you just get a desktop at that point? Or build one? Did I forget to mention its power adaptor alone weighs an extra a kilo? [Computer Shopper]
