Give me a chunkier laptop

Like many people I use a laptop as a desktop replacement, a lot of work with it at the desk, computing on the move a small part of its usage (I wager quite similar for many though obviously plenty of road warriors e.g. travelling sales / support people who want a lighter machine).by adding

When your laptop used mainly in one place (I'm occasionally on the road) then a bit of extra girth (allowing better performance as some of the ultra slim components a bit weedy and more "ports" ) is good.

Road warriors & desktop replacement users have very different needs - one size does not fit all.
