The XBox laptop thing was pretty fucking sweet.  Any idea what the cost was?  (Not that I could ever afford one, just wondering.)  I'm also wondering if there was a battery or if you had to be plugged.  I'm assuming plugged considering the lack of mentioning a battery.  Regardless, pretty fucking sweet.
