One segment of the market that just hasn't grown the way enthusiasts would like is the ability to make your own laptop. The 15" laptop chassis that OZC provides is fairly customizable, except for one small component. You are stuck with a 8600M GT as your graphics chip, that is not customizable. Check out the full deal at PC Mechanic.

It looks like even ASUS might be getting tired of the Eee name. The company is apparently going to be launching a new notebook known as the S101 rather than be known as a $900 Eee PC. More than likely ASUS simply realized that selling a $900 Eee PC defeated the purpose of the Eee PC to begin with.

Rumors, rumors, rumors. We seem to be hearing these about Apple on a daily basis and most recently about a possible move away from Intel's chipset technologies on the MacBook line of products. Though we don't often delve into the world of Apple we spent some time researching where Apple might go for a chipset replacement and the pieces came together rather easily.

It is hard to place all of the blame on Alienware or on Dell who bought them, but the high powered gaming laptop seems to be going extinct very quickly. Even with the high end components in the Area-51 m15x, it can't keep up with a desktop system of less than half the price. Trying to display 1920x1200 on a 15.4" screen is a bad idea, there is no way to keep the components reasonably cool, and don't even think of using the battery, it will be flat in half an hour. ThinkComputers recently reviewed model was a bit less expensive, though still prohibitive.
