San Jose (CA) - Pick your part, any part, with OCZ?s do-it-yourself gaming notebook. This very simple idea lets power users customize most of the important parts while still leaving most of the ugly manufacturing to the professionals. The laptop is sold without a processor, hard drive and memory, but it does include a Geforce 8600 GT with 512 MB of video ram and an 8X DVD R/RW burner.
Buyers pop in their choice of an Intel Core 2 Duo mobile CPU, hard drive/SSD and up to four gigabytes of DDR2-677 SODIMMs.
The OCZ do-it-yourself laptop will sell for approximately $550 to $600 and this certainly seems like a sensible upgrade for people who already own an integrated graphics laptop. Just cannibalize the processor, memory and hard drive into the OCZ computer and BAM instant gaming laptop for cheap.
