Eurocom Monster 1.0 11.6When Eurocom sent us their latest gaming notebook for evaluation, we expected the usual huge, heavy machine with obscenely powerful components inside. It’s even called the “Monster”, which seems to indicate a particularly beastly rig.

But when the box arrived on our doorstep, it seemed far too small to encase anything resembling the description above. Indeed, inside the small shipping container was an even smaller notebook. The Monster is barely bigger than a netbook, actually, with an 11.6-inch screen and a body that’s as thin as 0.5 inches...

Like I've said before, any display smaller than 14" is too small to be enjoyed as a gaming platform.

"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."

650M.. SSD.. i7.. 1866mhz RAM.. in THAT!? That is AWESOME.

I'd use it, but as InsideSin said, too small for a gaming platform. Definitely powerful enough as a mobile workstation though.

That packs a serious punch for being under 4lbs. I wouldn't mind that at all.

Looks can be deciving. But if you are a gamer theres only one way to play games.... on a pc. But good job on creating frankenstein.

Could always just hook it to a larger monitor and gaming peripherals!

While for portable usage, there's always a compromise but people try to game on just about anything they can. So while the enjoyment factor may be less, it won't stop people from doing it anyway.

This would not be a really fun screen to play most games on, but it seems to be really light for a gaming notebook.

A gaming notebook? That would work wonders for me!
