  • Wow, these are basically desktop replacements. No way you can lug around a 6-pound laptop in your backpack and not have to go see a chiropractor soon afterwards. Great power, though.
  • Ya, I think these are more like portable desktops than true laptops. You can grab them and go from one desk to another, or from one office to another, but I wouldn't commute with one.
