Also folks like me that need a office rig, a laptop for presentations on the road and a home gaming rig. I've got $6k worth of software alone that can only be loaded onto a single machine. So why would $3-4k seem like a lot when the alternate is $6k of software x 3 machines? A laptop replaced a ton of redundancy in my life. The side benefit is working/playing by the pool or out on the deck on a nice day... how's your desk?

btw; that price is cheap if it comes with everything...

I personally don't have a desk, so laptop is a great choice for me. Grab the laptop in front of the TV while my desktop is connected to my LCD TV.
