Eurocom launches £5600 laptop

A Canadian PC maker has just announced that it’s taking pre-orders for a £5,600 laptop.

While the expensive bit of kit, made by Eurocom and aptly named The Panther 2.0, isn’t made of gold as you may think given the price tag, it does have 4TB storage, which equals or exceeds that offered with most desktops and even servers. It’s housed in four slots, with a separate drive in each.

The company says on its website that it’s been designed to be a workstation replacement for running high-end graphics and CAD (computer-aided design) programs and is said to
be powered “by the fastest desktop 6-core Intel processors” as well as boasting ATi’s CrossfireX Video Technology with two ATi Radeon Mobility HD5870, or NVIDIA SLI with two GeForce GTX 480M or NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M or Quadro FX 5000M graphics cards.

The credit busting laptop also has a 17.3-inch screen and comes with up to 24GB of memory. There’s a 3.0-megapixel webcam  can support AMD’s CrossFire X and Nvidia’s Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technologies to link graphics cards together.

Credit crunch, what credit crunch?
