NVIDIA 790i SLI Ultra – has more radiator fins that my truck

I know heat dispersion is a hard thing to control, furthermore, I know that the more power we give these chips, capacitors, and all that jazz, the hotter they get, but look at the picture below, at some point you just need to start bundling liquid cooling and give up on the conventional cooling methods. However, the features are strong with this one and it’s a badass motherboard.

This laptop weighs less than the MacBook Air at 1.249kg compared to the MBA’s 1.36kg, and it’s only marginally larger than the MBA at 296x30.8x209mm with the thinnest point being 12.5mm. The only place where this notebook lacks is in the performance department, but it makes up for it.

I knew they had 33 consoles in stock, and given the lack of advertising Sam's Club has done for this event I figured I could wait until 10:30 or so. Thankfully I was correct in my assumption and managed to get there and secure a good spot in line.

I like that everyone seems to have already universally recognized that the Eee has won and hasn’t started calling every computer like it that comes out an “Eee Killer”, they’ve settled on competitor, and more precise term. This UMPC puts up some serious competition too offering up integrated HSDPA at 7.2Mbps and probably Bluetooth.
