Whether you want to consider Digital Storm's new Veloce an Ultrabook with a gaming punch or a gaming notebook with Ultrabook-like dimensions is up to you. What we can tell you is that it's a 13.3-inch laptop that measures just 1.26 inches thick and weighs 4.6 pounds, putting it in a thin and light class of laptops. Unlike most other systems with these kinds of dimensions, however, the Veloce has game.
It starts with an Intel Core i7 4800MQ processor and continues with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M GPU, both of which drive the system's Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) display. That's right, this thing isn't wielding a 1366x768 panel and instead went the distance with 1080p.
"Veloce is a gaming notebook the industry has been waiting for," said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm's Director of Product Development. "The notebook strikes the optimal balance of power and portability without sacrificing gaming performance and is the first Haswell based slim gaming notebook, to offer a stunning Full 1080 HD display."
Other specs include 8GB of DDR3-1600 memory, 750GB hybrid drive with 8GB solid state drive, 8X DVD burner, Killer Wireless-N 1202 LAN + Bluetooth 4.0 module, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, VGA output, and Windows 8 64-bit.
Veloce will be available to purchase on July 17th starting at $1,535.
