The name of Asus' media center laptop is as unwieldy as the actual machine: The NX90JQ-A1 is a 9.4-pound beast with Bang & Olufsen speakers that stick out of the side like ears.
The screen is an absurdly huge 18.4 inches, widescreen of course, and the highly reflective polished aluminum surface is cool to look at--but probably shouldn't be touched or used in environments with overhead lighting, which only knocks out 99% of potential users.
Two other interesting design features: 1) See those little black rectangles to either side of the keyboard? Those are dual touchpads that work in tandem, i.e. you can be "mousing" with the left one while button-clicking with the right one. 2) Having speakers mounted on the screen, while unwieldy, actually fires the sound towards your own ears, unlike the keyboard-mounted speakers of most laptops, which shoot the sound straight up.
