    Wow, that's a behemoth. I think the heaviest laptop I've ever heard about was a 15 pound Acer.

    I'm on the move a lot so having a light laptop was a necessity
    Why are ringtones always such a big issue? Don't people realize that they're obnoxious!? And why the Nintendo 'Wii'? What th-!?

    Thats interesting Jack...I would have thought most CAD users would prefer a desktop to a laptop but I can understand wanting to work on things at different places. Do the gaming laptops market themselves to CAD users or is it something that CAD users have just started tuning into?

    That 's transportable, not portable.

    Well we do . Nothing like working on a huge CRT. The LCD pales by comparison. But if I go out to a site and and have to make As-Built drawings, the "luggable" (3-6 lbs is portable, 7 - 10 is portable, after 11 lbs I use "luggable") , having the laptop is beter then taking some measurements, going back to office, cadding it up....repeat 4-5 times. Just no way to write down all that data for structural / mechanical / electrical wthout it tunning all over itself.

    In the office, I'll use the laptop for routine e-mail, spreadsheet work and small CAD edits and stuff but jump on the big box for any lengthy CAD sessions.
