Parallel to that theme is a 17” 1920x1200 (16:10) display, 6GB of DDR3 1066MHz triple-channel RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 280M with 1GB of VRAM. Other base specifications include its 320GB 5400RPM HDD, 8x DVD drive, 3 megapixel webcam, a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, 10/100/1000 NIC, four USB 2.0 ports, Firewire and HDMI ports, 7-in-1 media reader and a 12-cell battery. It ships with a 64-bit copy of Vista Home Premium SP1 and a standard 1-year warranty with lifetime tech support.
I’m not sure I understand why the base specs include a 5400RPM HDD – especially with a price of $2,335. The system is fully customizable, though, and a range of 7200RPM HDDs as well as SSDs are available. I toyed around with the configurations a bit and after including a Creative X-Fi USB sound card and 80GB Intel X25-M the price shot up to $2,704. If you’re looking to game on the run and have the coin to match your taste, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better rig at the moment.
