The kids may be dreaming of weird motorized hamsters, but you're dreaming of pwning your friends with a railgun on a hulking, immersive gaming PC. Well, this is your year, l33t gamer. Meet the Ostendo CRVD monitor.
Alienware has been hinting at the release of its new gaming laptop with a cryptic "All Powerful" campaign. But it looks like someone at the company didn't speak to marketing, and released info on the M17X anyway. It's a monster.
Voodoo Computers is the badass gaming arm of HP [NYSE:HPQ], and the company has acquired a considerable cult following. Now it seems the company is trying to leverage that loyalty with its new Envy laptop, which went on sale today. The computer is fully customizable (as gaming machines often are), and so the pricing scheme is variable. That said, any way you cut it, the Envy is a bit of a bank-breaker. The machine's lowest-end configuration starts at $2100 and the top model rings in at around $4000.
Apparently content to leave US buyers wanting, Asus [TPE: 2357] has started shipping its powerful gaming notebook in the UK. The G70 is a 17-inch beast of a machine, featuring a WUXGA/WXGA+ panel that is ultra-wide and optimized for watching Blu-Ray video. It also features a Core 2 Extreme chip, two (yes -- two) GeForce 8700M GT graphics cards, a rather measly 1GB of RAM and an optional Blu-Ray writer. In addition, there are the usual specs: gigabit ethernet, Bluetooth/WiFi and a bunch of LED lights that look fancy and high-tech.
