Acer is about to unveil a new line of laptops meant to fit the needs of those looking for the most powerful desktop-replacement mobiles available. Weighting at 16 pounds, these have to be the heaviest laptops around but at the same time are easier to carry than any SFF system while still carrying a 17" screen, 7,200 rpm hard drives and the fastest desktop CPUs available.

The notebook model will also sport 1GB of RAM, a DVD burner, Nvidia's GeForce FX Go5700 graphics card and 802.11g wireless networking, according to Acer's Web site.
