Earlier this week, Nvidia officially announced its Fermi part for notebooks – the GeForce GTX 480M. Today that mobile GPU is ready for order in Clevo's monster gaming laptop, the 17.1-inch DF900.
The GeForce GTX 480M GPU upgrade option costs $588 extra over the stock GTX 285M, and will set you back around $3,000 at the default configuration levels.
At the spec levels, it's definitely a desktop replacement and not something that's build for any sort of mobility – at least for not any length of time away from a power outlet.
