    Looks awesome but I don't consider it a desktop replacement. It uses a laptop CPU 8950hk. Sager & Cybertron use true desktop CPUs such as the I9 9900k, I7 8086k, I7 8700k, Etc.... I think Alienware is coming out with a true desktop replacement also. Sager has been doing it for many many years. Anyway I'm sure they have a bunch of other companies that do it also. Totally wish this Mothership was capable of using an I9 9900k.

    Kudos to them for INNOVATING if nothing else. I think it's a really cool idea but impractical for me personally. I have found that a light laptop with long battery life and gaming desktop go together best for me. I don't think I need a portable solution that can do both.

    I have been thinking like 2 hours straight, and couldn't find the audience for this product.
    They advertise this as a laptop, who the hell will you use ths in a coffee shop or school? Second, they also advertise it as a desktop replacement, which can be for sure, but honestly, with the size lf this monster, you will mostly keep it on your desktop like 99% of the time, in that case, you are much better with a proper mini itx desktop : expandable, much much cheaper and more powerfull.
    Maybe you are thinking : "But of course this is better, it's portable", but you guys honestly will use this outside of your house? .

      [Alpha]-0mega- 2 months ago

      I'm in IT, and I also do freelance stuff. Any contract in which I have to travel around a lot *and* program on location would give me a lot of use for this. It's more ergonomic than a laptop, so I see this as a literal desktop replacement. You go to another location, set up your desk with your portable desktop and go. That said I'd probably still go with a laptop instead, as it allows actual use on your lap / in the field, and a laptop cooler can help a lot with the ergonomics there.

    But I just bought a new gaming laptop.
    I see no reason for that to be that expensive. Sure, it's a brand new form factor, but it shouldn't be much more expensive than any other laptop with those particular specs. But how big was that monitor? I wanted a "laptop" with a 21" monitor.
