    It should come with a detachable stand, imho!

    • Yuan Taizong

      Agreed, this thing is huge.

    Can it run Crysis?

  • Yuan Taizong

    Such a big device, but the internal storage is dissapointing, thank the Gods we have Dropbox, Microsoft SkyDrive and others to make up for it.

      It targets a specific group of practitioners so the software that will get installed will be work-related to that group. But you can probably connect external storage to it. And you’re right, Dropbox or Skydrive should also help.

    The GT745M can handle Crysis 3 – albeit with excruciatingly low frame rates :)

    156GB – Typo alert

    • Tips_y

      Yes, that should probably read 256GB.

    Pretty impressive! But I wonder how much it would cost…
