    This is only a laptop if you are a stone carving of Abraham Lincoln.

    This is not a laptop, this is a portable desktop replacement.

    Why the HK CPU? I have a full i7 7700k in my laptop now, and for that money I'd want the same if I was in the market for a $10k+ replacement.

    Well here in the UK, by the time you add VAT and given the current poor value of Sterling, that machine is going to retail at around £10,000, if it comes here. Anyone who pays for it must be in need of help.

    Because it's a cherry picked, better, and more efficient version of the same CPU. I don't see how you can complain since you're getting the same CPU but guaranteed to be more power efficient and it costs more anyway.

    But it's significantly less powerful, isn't it? If you're building an absurdly heavy laptop that's clearly meant to be portable in the sense of "easily moved from room to room in your house" than the usual kind of laptop that goes where you go, and it's going for the "money is no object" base, then it should be the 7700k. A laptop like this is rarely going to run unplugged from the mains anyway, so power efficiency isn't a significant factor.

    Granted, a gaming user might not notice the difference, and I wanted the best CPU option I could get because my machine will undergo serious stress running creative software, but it was info such as this that made me go for the desktop standard:
