    Beautiful piece of design also. Asus has come a long way from those crappy and weird looking laptops to these beautifully designed machines. Although I'm sure it's an amazing computer it must be heavy as hell and not very practical for carrying around. It must weigh at least 7 kg. Plus the adapter probably another 2 so were looking at a pretty decent amount of weight. Nevertheless, congrats Asus, amazing piece of engineering.

    Take care, Julie

    Thanks for your thoughts Julie.
    This laptop weighs around 6 Kgs, and is indeed not one would carry around. It wouldn't be a great desktop replacement too due to its high price which exceeds 2000 US dollars. But as you said an amazing piece of engineering!
    Cheers!

    How does it compare to Eurocom's Phantom D90xC PHANTOM-X?... I was always thought that was the world's fastest laptop... ??? :)

    @Guy They both are in the similar league. Meanwhile, Maingear has released a new laptop which it claims is the fastest gaming laptop. Check it out here
