iBUYPOWER Goes Multi-Touch With 1080p Battalion Touch CZ-11 Gaming Notebook

Desktop replacement notebooks aren't as popular as they once were, but the big boys still have a place in the laptop world. A really, really big place. iBUYPOWER has just revealed what might be the most noticeable notebook of the year so far, not only because of the great specifications list, but the sheer size of this unit.

The Battalion Touch CZ-11 differs from most monsters, as it has some smarts to go along with the muscle. The main standout is the 1080p multi-touch trackpad, making it one of the first (and only) multi-touch gaming machines in existance. It also includes a Core i7 processor, a 15" display, 4GB of DDR3 memory, an ATI Radeon HD 5650 GPU, DirectX 11 support and an optional Blu-ray drive. It can be configured for as little as $1299 for "gamers," while a lower-end model can be purchased for $1100, but it's mostly for multi-media lovers who don't fire up Crysis 2 very often.
