Getting in close
The actual details of the machine are rather similar to the 17" machine that we looked at last year
, just kind of... bigger. The same row of buttons is across the top of the keyboard, and the keyboard itself is full size with a number pad. The same DVI ports sits on the back, and the ports down the side are the same, too.
Just to give you an idea of how massive this notebook is, we thought we'd line it up next to some other products for comparison.

notebook in this group shot. Bottom right: the 19" SLI notebook next to a 20" widescreen monitor from BENQ, which also runs 1680x1050.
