CyberPowerPC's 'Fang Taipan' Gaming Notebook Packs a Lethal Bite
The 17.3-inch gaming notebook starts at $1,819, which is reasonable for this type of machine. That investment translates into the following:
- Intel Core i7 3630QM processor (2.4GHz, 6MB cache)
- 16GB DDR3-1333 memory
- 2 x GeForce GTX 670M GPUs in SLI
- 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SATA III solid state drive
- 1TB hard drive
- 8X DVD burner
- 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
- Windows 8
Not a bad collection of hardware, and there are several free upgrades available as part of of a Windows 8 pre-order promotion, including a bump up to Corsair Vengeance RAM and 128GB SSD, which actually knocks $6 off the starting price. On the flip side, you can certainly deck this thing out if you have disposable income to spare.
"The CyberpowerPC Fang Taipan is a laptop beast that wields a lethal dose of power. It can accommodate two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680Ms in SLI model; a full range of Intel Core i7 CPUs including the fastest i7-3940XM (3.0GHz) Extreme Edition Ivy Bridge Mobile Processor; and features up to 32GB of dual-channel DDR3 memory for gaming at unparalleled speeds," CyberPowerPC says.
You can order the Fang Taipan today, and if selecting Windows 8 as the operating system, it will ship a couple weeks from now.
