I can see how a 330W adapter might be a little low for a laptop like the X9E2 with dual GTX 1080, 7700K, and overclocking, but are there really any laptops that actually need 780W? Does the extra power allow for quick-charging the laptop's battery while also powering the overclocked-laptop or something? Dang, that's a lot of power.

Yeah I'd hope for a 3 year warranty for such a beast. Figured a company might do the R&D to eliminate the need for dual 330w AC adapters.
Hope the 2 fans shut off if the adapter isn't being taxed.

@BRian- watch Mrfox review on youtub, he was easily drawing over 560watt power from a eurocom laptop with 1080 SLI. and that was with stock settings no overclocking. once u do some overclocking the draw can reach 600+ and maybe over 700 once the vbios of pascal gets unlocked.

Just make an external SFX-L powersupply case ... place any SFX-L inside for 100 $ only and enjoy is it hard to do ?

But laptops (externally) run on just one voltage, usually 19-20V. Just 1 rail.

DC to DC boards are very easy to make and very efficient (unlike AC to DC)

All what they need to add is a 12V to 19.5 V DC to DC converter inside that case and connect it to the 12V Rail of the powersupply.

and the Majority of the powersupplies are single 12V rails today , and they use DC to DC converter as well to get 5V and 3.3 V from 12V rail so if you never use the 5V and 3.3V you will still get the full wattage from the 12V port...... you dont need to worry where to plug the 12V port from the DC to DC converter (12V to 19.5V)

Powersupply 12V port ----> DC to DC converter ----> 19.5V output

alot much better than paying 10 times the price !!!

Hmm I see what you mean, price wise. If the resulting product is far cheaper.
Didn't know the 5v and 3.3v of desktop PSUs were taken from the 12V rail(s) instead of AC power. Might depend on the manufacture though? Thanks

Modern power supplies use DC to DC converters inside their power supplies ... look in the specs to know which uses DC to DC converter to get the 5 and 3.3 V from the 12V , this way is better because you get the FULL Wattage on 12V if you dont use 5 or 3.3V devices ...
