Asus Unleashes 18.4" W90 Laptop into the Wild, Equipped with a 4870 X2 GPU

Paul Lilly

Talk about a true desktop replacement - Asus' new W90 laptop packs enough hardware inside to leave most mainstream desktop PCs in the dust. It's also one of Asus' first notebooks to boast an 18.4-inch LCD display, and at that size, it better (and it does) support full HD with a 1920x1200 resolution.

The W90 comes with a speedy Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 processor (2.8GHz, 6MB cache, 1066MHz frontside bus) on the Intel X38 chipset, complimented with 6GB of DDR2-memory, a 320GB hard drive, and DVD burner. But it's the graphics that really makes the W90 a desktop replacement for gamers. The 11.46-pound lappy owes some of its bulk to a dual-GPU ATI 4870 X2 videocard with 1GB of video memory - sweet!

As is expected, the W90 doesn't come cheap, and is available now for $2,200 through That also includes a backpack, mouse, and 12-cell battery.
