    Considering the Razer Blade Pro (at 3.6k GBP) only has a single 1080, this thing is at least that much.

    Now that you can quick-attach an external GPU to a sensible laptop, I don't see much future in desktop replacements like this

    True, and it's probably the best option for future-proofing. (That said -- maybe you've seen benchmarks that I haven't? -- although in theory the cable-connected options ought to be fine, they simply don't seem to operate at the expected level. Wouldn't be a deal-breaker for me though.)

    I'll probably never buy a desktop machine again, and I certainly am looking for a desktop replacement. I've always done it until now because my work requires a powerful PC, and because I enjoy games and the M-class GPUs used to be awful. Now, it's finally worth me spending the extra money given that performance is so high. I think there must be a pretty good market building up now for this, given the number of firms like Origin, Schenker and MSI who lead with their desktop-espue portables.

    I had to ship my PC abroad for a few months this year for work. It was exactly as stupid as it sounds. Suffice it to say, I'm never doing that again! I need my PC to be portable, but I don't necessarily care about using it on the move, or how much time I get out of its battery.
