Eurocom's P5 Pro And P7 Pro, Gaming Notebooks Or Mobile Workstations?

Eurocom announced a pair of high-performance notebooks, the 15.6-inch P5 Pro and the 17.3-inch P7 Pro, both of which boast desktop Intel processors and 4K display options. Eurocom said the laptops are "fully upgradeable and configurable." Indeed, there are plenty of customization options, and depending on what you choose, you could have yourself either a wicked gaming machine or a powerful mobile workstation.

The main differentiator there concerns the graphics. On both machines, you can opt for Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M, 970M or 965M GPUs -- or roll with Quadro K5100M, K3100M or K1100M graphics.

They feature Intel Core-i7 4700 desktop CPUs, too (although Eurocom did not specify which SKUs, exactly), as well as up to 32 GB of DDR3L-2133 MHz RAM. The notebooks can house up to four physical drives (4.5 TB total) with two M.2 ports and two SATA 6 Gbps ports, and it offers RAID 0/1/5/10 support.

There are "high performance, high quality" copper heatsinks, with no fewer than 7 heat pipes, dissipating heat for the CPU and GPU.

The 15.6-inch model offers a 4K (3840 x 2160) option as well as a Full HD matte option; for some reason, the 17.3-inch unit only has the 1920 x 1080 resolution, although you can opt for either a matte or a glossy display. Both support up to three total displays.

There's a 6-in-1 card reader slot in addition to four USB 3.0 ports (one of which is powered), an eSATA/USB 3.0 combo port, headphone and mic jacks, S/PDIF, a line-in port, and a LAN port. For connecting external displays, the P5 Pro and P7 Pro offer two DisplayPort 1.2 ports and one HDMI. 

There are two 2 W built-in speakers backed by Sound Blaster X-FI MB3, which also enables 7.1-channel output.

The keyboard is full-sized and backlit, with a numpad and special WASD Gaming keys. The touchpad supports multi-gesture capabilities and scrolling. 

The chassis itself is actually all Heavy Duty ABS plastic, which we suppose could be construed as a positive or a negative, but the whole shebang weighs in at 7.48 lbs (P5 Pro) and 8.6 lbs (P7 Pro).
