Yeah. It looks really nice, but I want stats before I buy. If it cant make ALL of my games fly it isnt worth the $4600 someone is willing to spend on it.They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

Forget gaming. Throw a workstation video chip in there and you've got a portable graphics/CAD/3D station to bring onsite to clients. Tons of potential in the business arena for that much.
For home users, don't be stupid.

Wow, gotta give Dell some props on the originality and style of that beast. Although, with that type of price tag, it proly going to be another toy for rich kids. Crazy design tho, 4600$ is the base price?
Edit: 3500$ base price. Feel bad for a friend of mine last year who bought the 1000$ Dell laptop and upgraded it to a hefty 3000$ laptop. Its just an average lappy now. A year from now, this beast will still be a Beast!

For the price I find this to be increadably impractical for potential DTR and AIO buyers. I see very few uses for this released as a consumer product. $3500 base for a computer who's only real advantage over an XPS laptop is it's 20.1" monitor(at a lower res) while still not being very powerful in the graphics department. It doesn't come with a built in tuner and it's 10lbs heavier than an xps laptop. RAID also is a plus, but doesn't add much to the overall package when it pushes the price into the $4000+ range.
