    Judging by the comments, most here don't even realize what Porsche's targeted audience is. This laptop is made for businessmen, managers, chairmen and so on, not for Gamers. It's made for the people who actually buy their cars. Of course you can get a lot of better laptops for the same money (not like the people who buy this laptop would really worry much about money), but the laptop isn't designed to be the best laptop on the market. It's pretty much for lifestyle. Opening a Porsche laptop is a completely different feeling and makes a different impression, than opening your everyday Apple and Windows laptops.

    After buying this device, I've realised that Prosche did not made it by itself, it just made the design idea. The actual company which made this device is called "TrekStor". To be honest, I tried using the device with some programs that requires higher graphic cards, and it worked well. For sure I do not recommend it for gamers, but it's not that bad as explained in this video. It's kinda fast and durable device and it currently costs nearly 1300 EUR.

    I have a gaming PC to play games and I have a laptop to do school work, I don’t want a surface pro 2 because I don’t see the need to combine them. if I wanted to combine them then you would most likely see me carrying around a razor laptop, but that is just me I suppose.

    While no GPU makes sense in this type of laptop, where design and usability is the first two things BUT if you only care about those two and no performance or no price at all, why dont you just go to the nearest Apple store and buy yhe most juiced up MacBook Pro instead of this thing. It a cool look, but honestly keyboard and the general design of the macbook pro looks better in my HONEST opinion.
