    Yes, you would give up the 2.5" bays and shove the fans back further towards the middle extending the fin area.

    To cool something like the new 18 core CPU you would literally have to pull the fans to the front of the unit, have them at full depth and pushing along fins the depth of the rest of the machine to the back :p

    There are already machines out there with no 2.5" drives, more/bigger fans with front to back airflow actually sounds awesome.

    The cost of the machine in such a setup would ensure anyone is not worried about shelling out for one or more m.2 drive ;)

    Keep it LGA and MXM and I'm sure there are people here who would pay whatever they charge for it.

    18 cores might be overkill for a laptop especially its unlocked 18 cores. let say 12 cores were to go into p570wm, it could remove it's 2ndary GPU slot and turn its heatsink for CPU, basically 3 fans working on a giant CPU heatsink should do the trick, it'll be capable of something like 4.2-4.4ghz overclock on 12 cores depending on the chip quality, while still retain 1 GPU slot and all the other HDD slots. m.2 shouldnt be a problem if they were to make the laptop a bit wider, or thicker.

    Only having a single niche target market would make it DOA is the issue.

    no way!! 1080 is already so powerful man, who needs two 1080 in sli lol, especially next gen GPU is around the corner its gonna be even more powerful.

    having great CPU power isnt exactly niche is it? people always crave for more!

    It's usually more about what people want than what they "need" - although I'm sure making a case for not needing to play games in 4K at 60+ FPS would still be debated. :vbtongue:
