Re: Give me a chunkier laptop
In fairness, most laptop manufacturers make a range of laptops catering to a spectrum of users. I think the ultra-slim laptops are promoted more frequently because it's an easy feature to point to, whereas demonstrating the workhorse capabilities of workstation-grade laptop requires someone to actually sit down with device and put it through its paces.
I'm with you, though: I traded my gutless XPS laptop for a Latitude, which is thicker but offers higher performance and is only slightly heaver. It also doesn't heat up to the point that I can fry eggs on it.
