Probably, but this is the most complete and epic production laptop (Not counting Meaker putting a 3930k in a laptop) that I have ever seen.

Just hope the temps will be in check. Always liked Clevo, only quarrels were the temps and corresponding noise.

I'm not a fan of these systems, they require mains power to run at peak performance and why would you not run it at peak, which brings me to the elephant in the room.. the battery which with this level of hardware is going to last about as long as a packet of hobnobs at a weight watchers meeting. When ever I see these types of laptops I think the manufacturer just thought "We could do it so why not". For the price you could easy build yourself a complete tidy mobile Lan rig.

I'd hate to lug around a montior, mouse &kb, cables, screen etc if I need a powerful machine for working in different areas. Thats the appeal. Its more ease of transport as opposed to battery powered gaming rig. Thats why the desktop xeon based laptops are becoming more of a thing now too.
