This is neat but so useless in real life. Fist off Flamming hot this thing must sound like a tornado with all it fans going full blast. And who wants to be staring at a little bitty 3d screen wearing those stupid looking glasses LOL. The power in this thing is awsome but eh.... I got a gaming laptop through work and its fun but unless I'm on the road it does not get much use sits in the corner and i game on a desktop.... Guess its personal prefrence but who wants to sit in fron of a laptop for hours on end playing games.
I agree with you jdog ^^ How can all this power can be sustained by current near worthless lithium batteries that can barely power those tiny smartphones.... laptops with full x86 cpu and gpus... forget it.
I am hoping big with Origin. I expect this laptop to be decent, as it is the "first" SLI laptop. This is only the first, now we can expect to see improvment on battery life, heat, and weight. The most important thing is that it was done.
Who cares about 3D? Its just a coverup for the fact that the graphics aren't getting better because of those stupid ()%*(&)#(*$#$ consoles. I want better graphics!!!! I'll be impressed when we get real holographic projectors. Pseudo 3D is still 2D in the end and nothing else.

Not to mention Clevo has been doing SLI for years. Had a Clevo branded SLI laptop rig many many moons ago in 2006.
[citation][nom]soldier37[/nom]2 580m in SLI for just a 1080p laptop way overkill and I'm a hardcore gamer but game at 2560 x 1600 with 2 gtx 580s 3gb versions. I also have a Asus G74 Sandy with a single 560 in it and it lasts about 90 min on high performance mode, cant imagine this lap lasting more than 30 min with those specs[/citation]GTX 580>>>>>GTX 580M

Exactly, this is what everyone who comments on this is missing. 3D is a joke for gaming and movies, but people are dumb enough...er... I mean cutting edge enough to pay ridiculous amounts of money for it.

I so agree with this that it's not even funny. The last 3-D movie I watched (Harold & Kumar Christmas) = the movie was decent - but the technology was an absolute joke in terms of the 3-D it actually used. It's a complete gimmick and I'd be surprised if game developers were taking advantage of this technology. I'm sure they think it's a joke.
if you are saying that 3d is a joke for gaming, you have never tried it on a proper setup.
3d in games is far different from movies, an entire second image is rendered from a different, adjustable, angle; in movies you are dealing with a fixed image.
Shutter glasses are the most comfortable way to view 3d as your head orientation has no affect on the 3d, and in a proper configuration there is little to no ghosting (or eye strain)
Parralax requires your head to remain perpendicular to the display, it is ok on my phone, but not desirable with a fixed display
polarization (circular anyway) is okay, but ghosting can still be an issue when your head is in motion.
I just have a hard time understanding the "if i have to wear glasses then i dont need 3d" argument. Are people so vain? you could make the same argument about headsets or any of 100 daily use items.
I guess what im saying is, you do not look cool out and about in public playing games; wearing some glasses to improve your personal experience isnt tipping the scales. Enjoy your self, and stop worrying about "gaming fashion".
For the record i agree about 80% of 3d movies are trash, though there are some gems.
