Oh enough with the outdated/slow complaints. Really. Not all of us need our laptops to simultaneously play two accounts of Call of Duty and stream pron.
I've got an i3 in a Toshiba Satellite, and it's zippy as hell. I use it for business applications, for watching movies online, and for browsing the living hell out of teh internets. I can have multi-tab Excel spreadsheets calculating array forumlas while watching Netflix and photoshopping cat pics, and it works just fine. I've never had a complaint. (Oh, and my keyboard is backlit, nutcrackeres.)
For some of us, things like screen size, quality of speakers, number pads, keyboard/mouse feel, durability, battery life, etc are more important than a few milliseconds more speed or the ability to engineer our own rap beats from home.
Not every user is YOU. Some of us are US.
ETA: I had a 17" Lenovo ThinkPad at work. It rocked. But they meant it when they dubbed them "desktop replacements". It weighed a ton!
