The reviewers love the machine's performance, but are a little less impressed by its heft.

Check out this somewhat humorous review of what happened when a CNET reviewer lugged this 'laptop' around the terrorism-sensitive London public transportation system. This laptop even has a built-in handle ... I wonder if the next generation of portables will be so large that they come with a built-in hand cart.
