Cyperpower Unveils Fang Taipan Gaming Laptop

The manufacturer claims that it is the most "customizable gaming laptop". Buyers can choose to equip the system with two Nvidia GPUs, Core i7 Ivy Bridge processors, and memory.

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.

    Not bad for about $1,800, but for dual GPU configurations everyone with at least a bit of knowledge knows that SLI and Crossfire can cause microstuttering and most games do not support SLI/Crossfire setups.

    I'd rather get a single GTX 680(which they offer) but how does going from 2xGTX 670ms to a single GTX 680m signify a $250+ increase? Shouldn't it go down a bit?

    Seems kinda of a rip off at this price.
