That looks like a great idea for a laptop. I might look into this next summer when I buy a new laptop. I've always wanted to find a do it your self type laptop, or one you can build your self, instead of the premade ones. Asus seems to be going this way, and if they become popular, I can see them greatly improving on this idea, and coming out with better models.

But a laptop running a desktop processor? Thats pretty awesome.

I dont remember reading anything about a battery on it though. Does it come with one, or does it require continuous power from an outlet? Not that a battery would last long on it, even 30 minutes worth would be nice.

the slayer - It says near the end, that during an intense gaming session, the batter lasts about an hour, and for less intensive apps (like document writing, and music player, etc, I would guess) it would be double that, most likely...

Geh, I thought the benchmarks were bad compared to a similarly configured desktop...

Well, the second generation of this laptop will probably work out most of the worst of the limitations, so I hope that version is a bit better....

Course, what do I know? I'm not a do-it-yourselfer >_>

Looks like heat is one of the few main issues there, so I wonder what it'd be like dropping an upcoming Penryn CPU into that laptop? Nice and cool, and blazing fast, which should prove interesting.

Would any Neo Techies care to try this out for us?

It's too bad that it didn't perform great, but it is still awesome to have a user upgradeable laptop.
