IBUYPOWER sent over a press release Tuesday afternoon announcing its Battalion Touch CZ-11, a new multi-touch gaming notebook that houses Intel's Core i7 processor and AMD's 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5650 graphics. The "game-ready" configuration pricetag isn't all that bad either--$1,200--however gamers can configure the laptop to their specific needs and budgets for as low as $1100.
"Multi touch is one of the fastest growing PC gaming interfaces," said Darren Su, Executive Vice President of iBUYPOWER. "Pairing those capabilities with a Core i7 processor, high definition LCD and graphics card allows the CZ-11 to meet the mobile gaming needs of almost any user."
This portable rig provides a 15.6-inch, Full HD, multi-touch capable LCD with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080. Also thrown into the mix is Windows 7 Home Premium, a fingerprint reader, 4GB of 1333 MHz DDR3 memory, a 500GB hard drive, and an optional 2X Blu-ray drive.
Gamers wanting to max out this laptop can option for the meatier Intel Core i7-820QM processor, 8GB of DDR3, and a 512GB Corsair Performance Series P512 MLC SSD.
