Until this week I didn't know they made laptops this powerful. Pentium4, 3.8 GHz, 4GB of RAM, dual hard drives, SATA, built in bluetooth and wifi, powerful video and audio cards, etc. This will outperform many desktop workstations. 4 times the RAM of my Toshiba Satellite laptop.
But I suppose it's reasonable to expect some WOW for $6,000.
