They're just so much more expensive for the same thing; the pads are annoying although you can put in a Trackball if you have a big enough Laptop Case; and they're far harder to upgrade and especially fix.

Yeah until I get a laptop I am waiting to see how nvidia's MXM tech is going to pawn out.

It will introduce mainstream graphical updates if the communinty accepts it.

I really hope that Nvidia forces it on people by only releasing the 6 series only in that format.
