Eurocom on Thursday added to its mobile lineup by announcing the Shark 3, a 15.6-inch laptop intended for users looking for an upgradeable and secure system with high performance parts. The Shark 3 comes stock with an Intel Core i5 4200M processor based on Haswell, Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU, and a 500GB hard drive (7200 RPM), though you can expand its storage well beyond that.
Eurocom's latest laptop is an ultraportable that starts at $825
Most of the time when we receive word of a new system offering from Eurocom, it's a desktop replacement-class laptop with all the bells and whistles, and price tag to match. This time around, Eurocom dropped us a line to let us know about its new Electra 2, a thin and light ultraportable that starts out at $825. It comes standard with a 15.6-inch Full HD 1080p IPS display and Intel Core i5 4200M (Haswell) processor clocked at 2.5GHz (3.10GHz Turbo).
Eurocom claims the M4 is the most powerful ultraportable on the planet
Put the kids to bed because Eurocom's M4 just might scare the children. Based on the specs, it certainly should scare any Ultrabooks that happen to wander by. According to Eurocom, the M4 is the world's most powerful ultraportable, a claim it makes based on its combination of up to an Intel Core i7 4940XM Extreme processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M (Maxwell) graphics.
You may have let cats, dogs, fish, lizards, and even snakes into your home, but have you ever adopted an Armadillo? Now you can, though it's not the kind that waddles around Texas weighing up to 130 pounds. This particular Armadillo comes from the Eurocom family measuring 13.6 inches (W) by 9.6 inches (D) by 0.91 inches (H) and weighing in at 4.4 pounds. That's Ultrabook territory.
Panther 5SE is packed with server grade components in a portable form factor
You may want to put your Ultrabook in the other room and turn on SpongeBob before reading any further, we wouldn't want that system suddenly feeling inadequate. With Eurocom's Panther 5S3 Mobile Server, it's not a question of whether it can run Crysis, but can it pull its weight as an entire network server for 20 to 50 users? The answer to that question is "Yes" and you don't even need a server room do it.
The Uno 3.0 has an integrated battery pack for back-up power in case of a failure.
Are enterprise customers clamoring for all-in-one (AIO) desktops? We're not sure, but system builder Eurocom is confident there's a large enough market to warrant releasing the Uno 3.0, an AIO desktop with a 21.5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) multi-touch display and integrated 6-cell battery pack just in case the building's wiring goes haywire. For the bean counters, Eurocom's also pitching this as an Eco-Friendly system that can result in reduced energy costs.
Humility isn't a trait you'll find lingering around Eurocom's marketing team. Instead, the braggarts at Eurocom unveiled what they consider to be "the greatest notebook of all time" in the Scorpius, a 17.3-inch laptop that's capable of wielding dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 GPUs, up to an Intel Core i7 3920XM processor, as much as 32GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, and three storage devices. Deck one of these puppies out and the Tim Allen grunt will come free of charge.
It's tough to outrun a fox, but perhaps even harder to match the pace of Eurocom's Fox 4.0, a well equipped mobile workstation packing 5.7 pounds of storage and muscle. Eurocom describes its 15.6-inch Fox 4.0 as a small form factor notebook -- most of us would consider 15.6 inches a regular sized laptop -- albeit one that's able to tote up to 3TB of storage when configured with three 1TB drives. It measures 14.96 inches by 10 inches by 1.61 inches.
Technically speaking, Eurocom's new Monster 1.0 laptop isn't an Ultrabook, nor is the company claiming it to be. Instead, Eurocom introduces the Monster 1.0 as a mobile system that "packs the performance of a gaming beast into a 4-pound ultraportable design." So it's an ultraportable, which means it isn't quite as svelte as an Ultrabook, but it's also better spec'd with up to an Intel Core i7 3820QM processor, 16GB of DDR3-1600 memory, Nvidia GeForce GT 650M graphics, and 1TB of storage.
Dell may be all finished with 11.6-inch gaming notebooks, at least as it pertains to the Alienware M11x, but if you're a fan of such powerful pint-sized PCs, don't feel obligated to cry yourself to sleep. The 11.6-inch form factor for gamers lives on, not only with Maingear's recently announced 'Pulse' laptop, but also via Eurocom, which is now selling its Monster 1.0 laptop starting at just $817.
