  1. Hello dr_kim;

    ASUS, MSI, Dell etc., have nothing like you're looking for.

    Check out the Malibal 9 or one of the other Clevo X7200 models from other boutique builders like XoticPC SAGER NP7282 or OriginPC Eon17
  2. ^ Why, a maxed out Alienware m18x could do it...
  3. MSI GT683DXR

    Intel Core i7 2630QM

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570M (DDR5 1.5GB)

    1TB hard drive

    12GB DDR3 memory

    USB 3.0
