    This thing sounds really neat to own. Like, if some dude was like "here's a laptop" and gave me one I wouldn't complain. Otherwise too expensive. I imagine most people are thinking the same thing. Except for the guys that are like, "What do you mean the Kaby Lake socket is incompatible with Coffee Lake? " Do you buy a new CPU every year?

    $3500 and comes with a 5400rpm HDD? Really? This is obviously not a system meant to run unplugged, so why skimp on the HDD, 7200rpm just to much...It's like putting a governor in a Corvette.

    for $3500 you should expect 2TB SSD and no Mechanical at all.
