Recoiled and ready to strike

It seems the whole world is going crazy over Ultrabooks and ultrathins, but until Intel or AMD figure out a way to cram a pair of high-end GPUs into a form factor that's about the width of a pancake, there will still be a market for oversized gaming laptops built like a cinder block. Witness CyberPowerPC's Fang Taipan M2 gaming laptop (Clevo P375SM), a 17.3-inch machine that's capable of delivering a desktop-like computing experience.

The Fang Taipan M2 is fully customizable, meaning you can go crazy throwing fists full of dollars at the setup, or make do with a standard configuration starting at $1,869. What does that get you? Dual GPUs!

  • 17.3-inch Full HD 1920x1080 display
  • Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4GHz (3.4GHz) processor with 6MB cache
  • 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 RAM
  • 2 x Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M GPUs in SLI

  • 8X DVD burner
  • 802.11n Wi-Fi + Bluetooth combo
  • Backlit keyboard
  • 5MP and 1MP webcams

Where you go from there is up to you and your accountant. You can configure the Fang Taipan M2 with a different set of dual-GPUs in SLI or Crossfire, add more storage in RAID 1 or 0, upgrade the RAM, and so forth.
