Big fat EON17-X laptop compares to desktop

New laptop has specifications on par with a good performing desktop PC. It has dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M video cards in SLI, for example.

More specs here: EON17-X Custom Gaming and Professional Laptop Product Details and Features | ORIGIN PC

Ideal for serious gaming, and multi-media work.

Quite a laptop machine. Amazingly, it's plenty expensive as well.

I like the "Battery life: up to 60 minutes"!

I've noted that it seems to be the general consensus that a pair of Geforce GTX 580M in SLI don't add up to the same performance as a single GTX 580 desktop card.

I also see that they ship dual power adapters if you go with the SLI option. See the image below!

60 minutes and unneeded SLI Vidcards. Hello, anyone home in this laptop lapdog assortment?
