    I appreciate that this is a desktop replacement and it won't be carried around much. But is it excusable to have such an ugly thick chassis being sold now? Not for me at all but I think it's uglier than alienware's normal c**p

    It looks plenty chunky, then you realise that the screen is 18.4" and that base much be a couple of inches plus. :\

    I'd consider something in this form factor. I'd actually quite like something like this without the screen and keyboard, even.

    With mobile maxwell gtx980m etc being released the timing isn't great

    Good job some people consider cooked testicles to be a delicacy.

    As per usual very beautiful on the outside but not very well built on the inside for the price.
