Its a Dell XPS, so yeah 17". Its not "massivly" huge, pretty portable (I take it to and form work every day on the bus) although when compared to a "standard" laptop its pretty big.

It's more powerful than a lot of desktops, more than one that i've got here and the one I've got at home, it isnt as powerful as the overclocked dual core, SLI, water cooled one that I have though, but that does a lot of heavy calcualtions that are running a lot of the time, so I cant really use it, as its at 100% a lot of the time.

And I can do work when ever and where ever I need to so I dont have to mess about with one PC to another, I also cant take a desktop to different locations to do any mocap/ demos etc etc.
