CyberPower Has a Thin and Light Gaming Laptop Too

On Tuesday, CyberPower Inc. announced the release of its Zeusbook Edge X6, a thin and light notebook packed with Intel's fourth-generation Core i7 mobile processor and Nvidia graphics. CyberPower reports that the notebook is its thinnest and lightest to date, measuring a mere 0.82 inches thin and weighing 4.75 pounds.

The specs show that this gaming laptop has a 15.6-inch IPS display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 170-degree viewing angles, and a 72 percent color gamut. Backing this screen is an Intel Core i7-4710HQ Haswell processor and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M with 6 GB of VRAM. Keeping all of this cool is the company’s Supra-Cool cooling system featuring dual fans and heat sinks.

In addition, the new laptop includes 8 GB of DDR3 memory, a 1 TB hard drive and Wireless N and Bluetooth connectivity. On the left side, CyberPower provides a Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports, microphone and headphone jacks, and an SD card reader. On the right side are two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, and mini DisplayPort outputs. The optical drive is crammed into the front. CyberPower includes Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater.

The laptop also provides a backlit keyboard, illuminated by LEDs, and it uses a light sensor to automatically adjust the brightness depending on the environment. The Windows key can also be turned off so that gamers aren't accidentally pulling up the Start Screen/Desktop.

"The Zeusbook Edge X6 is a loaded warrior that features Nvidia Optimus Technology combined with the power efficiency of the 4th Generation Intel Core i7 mobile processor," according to CyberPower's press release. "The duo works to prolong battery life and manage performance under different usage scenarios, whether it be doing battle in your favorite game, streaming video, or tackling your next big school assignment."

The starting price for CyberPower's new laptop is $1399. Memory can be upgraded to 16 GB, and customers can choose from a long list of mSATA SSDs, regular SSDs and hard drives if 1 TB isn't enough storage. There's also a dual-band option and several external sound options.

    OK, FINALLY there is a reasonably portable laptop with beefy hardware AND an IPS display. 72% sRGB color gamut is not amazing, but it is pretty good and the wide viewing angles will certainly make it easier to use on a lap. Hey Lenovo and Dell...take a cue from this playbook and make this kind of thing!
