New Laptop

Posted 06 June 2010 - 01:41 AM

Hey Guys,

I'm in the market for a new laptop. Was curious if anyone knows of any that have higher specs than the following:


 1920x1080 WUXGA Display
 3.20GHz Intel® Core™ i7-920XM Extreme 8MB L3 Cache
 8GB 1333GHz DDR3
 Dual NVidia GeForce GTX 285M 1GB GDDR3
 Dual 160GB X25-M SATA2 SSD Drives RAID 0
 6X Blu-Ray/8X DVD+/-R Burner
 Intel 6300 Ultimate-N 802.11A/B/G/N LAN and Bluetooth Card
 IC Diamond 7 Thermal Compound, CPU & GPU

Price is not an issue. If you know of any, let me know. I've already compared some of the top brands but just in case I'm missing something, figured I'd post here. Thanks.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You're missing the right OS! Only one can run them all:

Yeah, I don't think that card will fit in any laptop.

This was 50% off the other day. $1100, just didnt get it because its a big 17 incher.

I like the 13 and 15" laptops nowadays.

The 260M is a completely different, and much smaller animal than the 285M.

Yes, it is doable. This was a config I actually pulled up after configuring a few different laptops to compare specs. That was the best I was able to find. Just figuring if anyone else see something I don't. As for wrong OS... I already have a Macbook Pro. I actually have several computers around here. Just really in need of a major upgrade, that's all.

I could be wrong here but that config seems less adequate considering it's single vid card vs dual and the FSB on the Ram is less albeit it has more RAM.

I just built that one for the thread, but I am more than positive that you can build one with dual video cards. I don't remember the stats but a friend of mine had built one on the site that totaled just over $14,000.

Nope it definitely was not!! Nothing really all that special aside from the processor and dual vid cards. I think part of that was because of the paint job on it. If you look around their site you will see thats a big deal with that company.
