Finally somebody who can give me a valid point. If you want to use the blade as is without ever hooking up a monitor and keyboard then sure that makes sense. What doesn't make sense to me is why someone would want a docking station if they don't want to plug into other stuff like a nice mechanical keyboard, speakers, 4K display, etc. The only benefit you will be getting at that point is a faster GPU, which is less of a value than being able to use more peripherals IMO. To each his own, I guess. The 14" blade is plenty fast for on the go. For when you're not on the go, a desktop will suit you better than the Core would. The only time I can see it making sense is if you use it for work and want to plug it in at the office, but even then do you need to play games at work? Do you need the extra graphics power while you are at work? The Core is for the stealth. People getting it for the 14" just have money burning a hole in their pockets and think they have to have it. Get a desktop, you'll thank me later. Too late? Too bad.
