At what point does a laptop become a desktop replacement? Debate that question all you want, but no matter where you draw the line, it's safe to say AVADirect's new Clevo P180HM gaming notebook crosses right over it. The P180HM brings an 18.4-inch Full HD (1920x1080) LED backlit display to the fight, which itself is powered by two GeForce GTX 560M GPUs.
Being first isn't always something to brag about. First in line to drink the funny smelling punch at an ominous cult meeting comes to mind, and there's no prize (or second date) for yelling "First!" during a one-night stand. In MSI's case, it's totally acceptable to prance around with a press release announcing a first of its own: the first to ship a "supercharged gaming laptop" in North America utilizing Nvidia's GeForce GTX 560M graphics chip.
Duke Nukem Forever is actually going to ship despite the absence of an apocalypse, and Nvidia wants to make sure you'll be able to play the long awaited follow-up on gaming notebooks. That's where Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 560M graphics chip comes in, one of two mobile GPUs Nvidia unwrapped at the Computex convention in Taiwan. As the more powerful of the two, Nvidia says "the GeForce GTX 560M and Nvidia Optimus mean gamers get 50 frames per second in Duke Nukem Forever and five hours of battery life in Microsoft Office," which translates into "real power and real portability."
