CyberPower released a new gaming laptop with the dramatic name "Fang Taipan".
The casing is based on the Clevo P370EM whitebook design, which integrates a 17.3-inch 1920x1080-pixel display with an integrated 2.0 megapixel webcam, fingerprint sensor, and an illuminated keyboard. The base system with an i7-3630QM processor, 16 GB memory, a 60 GB SSD, a 1 TB HDD, a DVD writer, two Nvidia GTX 670M GPUs, and a Windows 8 pre-order is priced at $1,819. Step up to an i7-3940XM processor, 32 GB memory, two GTX 680M GPUs, two 512 GB SSDs, a Blu-ray disc burner, and a dedicated sound card and you are looking at spending about $5,000.
According to Cyberpower, the Taipan, which got its name from the venomous Australian Taipan snake, weighs about 8.6 lbs in a basic configuration with one GPU.
