By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 6 comments

Here are four new GeForce GTX 800M-based laptops.

On Thursday, Digital Storm revealed four new laptops packed with Nvidia's new GTX 800M series of GPUs. To celebrate the launch, the company has decided to give away a "Krypton" laptop worth $1,478 USD. To enter, contestants must upload a picture of their "broke-down, dilapidated, decrepit" laptop to this address. Digital Storm will choose the best of the worst and announce a winner on May 1, 2014.

As for the new laptops, the company launched the 15.6-inch Javelin and Lance, and the 17.3-inch Krypton and Behemoth. All four arrive in four configurable models: Good, Better, Best and Ultimate. Starting prices begin at $1,196 (Javelin "Good") and extend up to $3,984 (Behemoth "Ultimate").

According to the specs, every model features an Nvidia GTX 800M series GPU. For example, the Javelin $1,196 "Good" model starts with a 15.6-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, an Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU, Nvidia's GTX 860M (2 GB), 8 GB of 1600 MHz memory, a 750 GB 7200 RPM hard drive, a DVD drive and Wireless N. The $1,630 "Ultimate" model builds on that setup but swaps out the CPU for a Core i7-4810MQ, 16 GB of 1600 MHz memory, an additional 256 GB SSD, a Blu-ray player and Wireless AC connectivity.

Feeling frisky? The company's Behemoth "Good" configuration starts at $2,289 and features a 17.3-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M GPU (8 GB). Also included is the Intel Core i7-4810MQ CPU, 16 GB of 1600 MHz memory, a 128 GB SSD, a 750 GB 7200 RPM hard drive, a DVD drive and wireless N connectivity. The $3,984 "Ultimate" version packs an Intel Core i7-4930MX CPU, a larger 256 GB SSD and Wireless AC connectivity.

"We've wanted to refresh our notebook line for a while and the Nvidia GTX 800M series launch provided the perfect timing," said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm's Director of Product Development.  "The cards' ability to deliver gaming performance comparable to a desktop system allow our notebooks to dominate anywhere."

    Bragging about 1080p res on a laptop is no longer hip. About 3 - 4 years ago when it was still new and uncommon yeh when I had a Asus G73. But halfway into 2014 with the hardware out now its common place. Also 256Gb SSD should be the standard OS hard drive now too.
