    Doesn't look very portable on the picture (even the heatsink look too big for a mobile platform). Still, there will always be a market for desktop replacement laptops, so no, I don't think mobile a CPU based on the Nehalem is overkill anymore than the i7 is for the desktop. Some people may be better off with an Atom based offering, but the two are different enough that they can co-exist by aiming at different market segments.

    It's common for validation platforms to bear little resemblance to shipping products. Their purpose is to provide a proof of concept.
