This new compact gaming notebook arrives

Digital Storm unveiled a new gaming laptop called the VELOCE on Wednesday, packing a 13.3 inch Full HD LED-lit screen, an Intel Core i7 4800MQ processor, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M GPU and more in a slim, portable design. Pricing starts at $1,535, and the portable gaming rig will be made available on July 17 directly from Digital Storm.

Currently the laptop portion of Digital Storm's website is closed off with a countdown timer and a message stating: "We're working on a new line of 'awesome' gaming laptops. Featuring completely new models with new custom finish options! It'll be worth the wait!"

That said, there won't be a link to the new laptop for another six days. Meanwhile, Digital Storm's email states that the upcoming laptop will weigh a mere 4.6 pounds (including battery) and measure only 1.26 inches thick. It's "aggressive" esthetic matches its powerful configuration, the company said, with Digital Storm’s signature finish featuring a blood red logo slicing across the notebook’s black top cover.  A cold silver and grey interior surrounds the backlit keyboard.

According to the list of specs, the laptop will pack the Core i7-4800MQ quad-core processor (up to 3.7 GHz and 6 MB of Cache), 8 GB of DDR3 RAM @ 1600 MHz (2x 4 GB sticks), an 8x DVD writer optical drive, and a hybrid storage configuration spanning a 750 GB 7200 RPM HDD and an 8 GB SSD. Networking will be handled by a Killer Wireless-N 1202 Wireless module.

"Other key features include room for two storage drives (mSATA & 2.5 inch) with RAID capability, a dedicated internal network port, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 1.4, VGA video out ports and Bluetooth connectivity," the company said. Windows 8 64-bit Edition will be the platform of choice.

Given the laptop has a starting price, customers will likely be provided with a basket of option to choose from. For more information about the new VELOCE laptop, keep your eyes peeled here.

    Although it is small, you can get much better bang for your buck and spend hundreds less. I think the typical gamer is not so lazy that they won't haul around an extra couple pounds to get much better performance (GPU), but I may be wrong.

    Get the same laptop from Sager for a few hundred cheaper. And when I say same, I mean EXACTLY the same. The only difference is the brand label and the price.

    I've ordered these Clevo systems from xtremecomputers.net before. They are hundreds cheaper and they have always had nice customer service if ever there was a problem.
