Those crazies over at LAPTOP Magazine got it in their heads to do a bit of social experimentin' with one of Dell's 18 pound XPS M2010 monstrosities. They lugged the 20-inch system through the subway, a Starbucks and a park in search of reactions from Manhattanites, and while we won't spoil all the surprises, the fact that they even got noticed on the subway is quite a testament to the fact that this thing just doesn't belong off a desk. (We even got mugged and beaten for our RAZR one time, and not a person batted an eye.) In summary, you'd have to be a bit off your rocker -- and/or an editor at a consumer tech magazine with way too much free time -- to attempt a portable lifestyle with the M2010, but we're guessing you could've figured that one out one your own.

He Ken,
it looks like you need TWO helpers to carry this piece of 'SchlepTop'
(it's an german joke for this heavy LapTops of the '80s. 'SchleppTop'  sounds like 'LapTop' in german)






Here is the next generation of DELL Laptops:

I see in the original picture he`s using the laptop on the tube, sorry subway. What you dont see is the cable dangling from the window thats  touching the live rail to power the damn thing.
