Customize a gaming laptop just like you would a desktop
Boutique builder iBuyPower is introducing OptiBoost, a fancy name for a customization program that will offer many of the same configuration options when shopping for a gaming laptop as you'll find when customizing a desktop PC. iBuyPower isn't really breaking new ground here, but presumably you'll have more options to choose from than when typically shopping a laptop PC. And to kick things off, iBuyPower will offer its OptiBoost program on select Gigabyte gaming notebooks.
"This is going to be a game changer. As customers know more, they also demand more. And when you’re serious about performance, you want to have things done your way. That’s the whole idea behind OptiBoost," said Darren Su, Vice President of iBuyPower.
Game changer or not, you'll be able to customize the core components of your laptop, including the processor, graphics card, SSD and/or HDD, and more.
"Gigabyte is excited about cooperating with iBuyPower on this new OptiBoost program," said Vincent Liu, sales director at Gigabyte notebook division. "Combining our leading edge gaming notebooks with the configurability and flexibility of the OptiBoost program will allow users to not only build a truly bespoke notebook, but to have exactly the system they need."
Initially the OptiBoost program will apply to Gigabyte's Ultraforce line of notebooks, namely the P3a4Gv2, P35Gv2, and P35Wv2, though iBuyPower says it will be expanding quickly.
