We’re used to seeing gaming notebooks that resemble a portable device only insofar as they have a lid that closes, as all those killer components tend to make the units heavy and bulky, but we’re starting to see gaming notebooks that somehow pack in impressive specs in a svelte form factor.
Such is the case with CyberPowerPC
’s ZeusBook Ultimate series, which delivers a quad-core Intel
Core i7-4700HQ (2.4GHz) Haswell
GeForce GTX 765M (2GB) graphic card, and 8GB of 1600MHz RAM. It has a 17.3-inch (1920x1080) anti-reflective LED display and offers a 1TB HDD, Killer NIC, stereo speakers with a subwoofer, and 720p HD webcam with four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, two mini DisplayPorts, mic/headphone jacks, and S/PDIF.
There are two models in the series at present--the ZeusBook Ultimate 100 and 200--which start at $1,429 and $1,535 respectively. The machines weigh in at a mere 5.73 lbs, and at 0.85 inches in thickness, CyberPowerPC claims they’re the world’s thinnest. Indeed, that’s 0.03 inches thinner than Razer’s Blade Pro
. And if you like the thinness, look, and specs of the ZeusBook Ultimate, MSI has something for you, too
