    Why a GTS 220? Why not something with a little more kick and future proofing like a 5770?

    Re: News - GIGABYTE adds external NVIDIA GeForce graphics to Booktop M1305 notebook

    Laptops should have something like this as an optional add-on...

    A proper docking station, with an upgradeable PCI-E slot for graphics card, extra storage bay for 3.5" drives (install the games on that rather than the built in drive if you can't play on the move anyway) and a beefed up power supply which also powers the laptop when docked. Doesn't matter that it's large - you keep it at home, attached to a big monitor, keyboard and mouse... come home, dock the lappy and go... hell you could even have a superlight laptop with no optical and have that in the dock as well.

    If we had that we could actually get rid of our desktops, it would be SO useful. Best of both worlds in 1 machine...

    Anybody listening?

    but you wouldn't get anywhere near the same pixel density or portability, and your power bill will be far higher.

    because it will use way more energy.

    But what I really want is more powerful than a Netbook, but almost as portable... and also capable of playing games when I'm at home... and doesn't require me to close things, copy them and open them somewhere else, keep things in sync etc...

    It'd be so convenient... especially if I had a dock at work too...

    I don't want my desktop to be portable, I want a separate laptop for that. Also, the power bill really isn't that big a deal when you consider the reduced performance you're getting with mobile parts.

    Re: News - GIGABYTE adds external NVIDIA GeForce graphics to Booktop M1305 notebook

    At least the ATI XGP used an HD3870. The GT220 is a weaker graphics card and the XGP using an HD3870 has been out for ages:

    http://www.guru3d.com/article/amilo-...ooster-review/

    However I am quite happy that BOTH ATI and Nvidia have decided to look at adding this functionality to notebooks!!

    Re: News - GIGABYTE adds external NVIDIA GeForce graphics to Booktop M1305 notebook

    In the future we might see things such as 17" Touchscreen LCD Panels (or w.e. technology they come up with) as the new laptops with lots of optional features such as graphics card docking stations etc. Then we could also have like a "main rig" that connects to it allowing us to do whatever we do now.

    But I'm happy with a desktop myself TBH. I'm not exactly gonna be playing Crysis whilst on the bus am I? Actually that could be the future lol...

    The Express Card slot was supposed to add this but it never transpired really. So it's basically useless except for SSDs as USB is cheaper.
