Eurocom's Panther 2.0 laptop sits in a PC purgatory place located between a traditional laptop and a desktop system. These are known as desktop replacements, and in case there was any doubt that the Panther 2.0 qualifies, Eurocom has added an Intel Core i7 990X Extreme Edition processor option to the list of CPUs that include both Xeon and Core i7 parts.
"The Core i7 990X gives our clients a super powerful, unlocked processor that is built for unmatched performance," said Mark Bialic, President of Eurocom. "Customers can now match the Intel Core i7 990X with AMD Radeon HD6970M or Nvidia GTX 485M videocards in single or dual configuration for a super computer experience inside a notebook form factor."
Base price starts at $2,631 and includes an Intel Core i7 950 processor, GeForce GTX 470M, 6GB of DDR3-1333 memory, 250GB hard drive, DVD burner, 9-in-1 memory card reader, 3MP webcam, two USB 3.0 ports, and three USB 2.0 ports. Some of the many upgrades include up to 24GB of RAM, Blu-ray drive, and four hard drive bays configurable with HDDs or SSDs in RAID 0/1/5/10.
