    Of course, you'd need a pallet lifter to cart it around on as well.

    that is not a laptop.

    anything that would kill you by being on your lap is instantly not a laptop..

    ..I'm looking at you too, Alienware

    I remember in 2004 buying bunch of these (Evesham Voyager 64 3200+ | Laptops | Reviews | PC Pro - we want 'powerful' laptops they said!). It is the only laptop I've every had that required 2 hands to pick up and made you grunt when you did so. A beast of a machine at the time though

    Reminds me of my old Mesh rebadged Clevo laptop. It had a desktop P4 in it, with a desktop graphics chipset (none of this 'M' stuff). Weighed a tonne, but was a beast of a machine at the time.

    The power connector even looks similar - it had a 4 pin connector for mine.

    That weighed about 3.5kg so this is a bit beefier...

    If only I had £5k to spend, and legs made of steel.

    We bought some HP 6560b this year and compared to other laptops-- they are bricks--

    still they are for the teachers-- if they can feel the weight, they won't accidently whack them into table wills they??? well thats the theory

    I love the way it is classed as a mobile server. In the same way all servers are mobile... With a trolley!
