Intentional.

Last time they intentionally boasted how you could run several cheat DLLs for first person shooters on their laptops and not suffer andy performance penalty.

I thought that was Dell that advertised that?

Either way this is intentional since miners have been buying up not only GPU's but also Laptop's with the new 3000 series card's in them.

This is just a way for them to boost the sales of there laptop's and fair play to them, as it might take some of the people away from buying GPU's as a laptop probably has a better resale value than a GPU overall.

This was 100% intentional, it's becoming apparent -in China especially- that more and more gaming laptops are being bought to be used for mining so this is a huge market for them to advertise to.
