    so what's to stop the screen from cracking when some force is placed on top?

    Meant to be as a true All-in-one, not a laptop deh. The MSI GT80 Titan SLI is already ludicrously big as it is. 21" is just ridiculous! I would go to the max of 17" and do SLI!

    maybe for you, but i had a 17" gaming laptop in 2008,
    why wouldnt i want a larger screen 8y later?

    might be ridiculous for you, but doesn't mean for everyone...

    This thing just makes me cringe looking at it. I get what it is for, but damn that is just ludicrous. I could stack my laptop a couple times and still not be that big.

    if you have the room for it, this will be a true desktop replacement. none of this laptop to the side running off a separate keyboard, and monitor for this bad boy.

    i think i am one of the few that actually like the look of this laptop - but then again i am a real sucker for gimmicky products... to the point where i think i have a problem, lmao.

    and it had to be a curved screen...

    cmon, ultrawide 1080p for a 1080 SLI? do they even check benchmarks? a single 1060-70 would laugh at that res, and without the curved and oversized crap it could actually be an interesting 17-19" ultrawide gaming laptop with somewhat normal dimensions

    I wonder if the PSU-errr... battery, is even included or they make it an optional add-on

    Agree...
    A qhd ultrawide would have been more exciting.
    But considering that 21 inches is still pretty small for 2560 x 1080's diagnol length...
    The pixel density is not bad.
    But is that all the screen space?

    What is the image lit up on the board with?
    [​IMG]
    Is that a projector space that would be customised?
    Or a razerblade/deathstalker style touch screen?

    Also... I imagine I would use this to drive my 4k screens and HTC VIVE. for the most part ?

    I am wondering?...
    This is dual GTX 1080"M"s right? ( none of the articles I am referencing explicitly say? )
    Which leaves me wondering if it isnt some proprietary custom design of gtx 1080 desktop hardware?

    Also I totally fudged on the pricing which isnt released yet.
    I actually thought I could get this ugly sci fi monster fer $1800! Heheh...
    I am not to bright. ( seemed like it was to good to be true :bang: )

    There isn't GTX 1080"M" - it's GTX 1080 "laptop version". TDP about 180W, almost reaches desktop speed, slightly less boost and has laptop form factor.
