Windows 7: Maximum Overkill!

Maximum Overkill!

Nobody has seen overkill until they've seen the pure insanity that is iBuyPower's most expensive laptop...

Quote:
Intel® Core™ i7 990X Processor Extreme Edition (6x 3.46GHz/12MB L3 Cache)
12GB [4GB x 3] 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM [Laptop Memory] - Corsair or Major Brand
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M 1.5GB GDDR5 3D Video [X7200]
480 GB ADATA S511 SSD SATA-III 6Gb/s (two for nearly a terabyte of SSD!!!)
4X Blu-Ray-R/8x Dual Format DVD±R/±RW + 16x CD-R/RW Combo Drive [X7200]
I don't even want to know the temps of that thing... or how long it'd take to pay off that loan for a $6493 laptop! I'm fairly sure this is one of the most powerful laptops ever made.....

What would anyone do with almost a TB of SSD space, 12 GB of RAM, and a 3.46 GHz hexacore laptop?!

How did they get a desktop CPU in a laptop and what are they going to use to cool it? I'd hate to have to carry it around. Better get a good cooling pad.

Hmmm..... I wonder if they're water cooled?

Funny thing is... I thought that the i7 740 QM would overheat in a really thin laptop... I couldn't have been more wrong. Even when my mobile i7 turbos all 4 cores to 2.93 GHz, the laptop seems to remain cool and quiet. This is what I really love about technology. You really never know what is going to happen next. I mean, look at iBP's new AMD A8 system. A 32 nm quad core desktop for $430...

Replace the ADATA SSD for an OCZ Vertex III and your talking.

After you click on the link, add a closing bracket ")" to it.

The correct link.

PS. If you get a file not found, go to the browser address bar and press enter. Seems strange

That's weird, I even find that address in a google search. Here is the cached page, see if that works:
