Asus' C90 notebook gives gamers complete control over major upgrades

Asus is truly going after the DIY market with its new C90 gaming laptop. The 15.4" unit is one of the most upgradeable laptops ever offered to consumers and cedes complete control over CPU, GPU (via a MXM graphics module), memory, HDD and optical drive upgrades without fear of voiding the warranty.

The Santa Rosa-based notebook comes with a generous 1680x1050 screen resolution and supports Intel Core 2-based processors up to the range-topping Core 2 Extreme X6800 (2.93GHz). SATA HDDs are supported and the C90 can accommodate traditional DVD burners or next gen drives including HD DVD and Blu-ray.

On the connectivity front, the C90 features 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR wireless options. The laptop also incorporates an eSATA port, HDMI out, TV-out, Firewire, three USB 2.0 ports, fingerprint scanner (Trusted Platform Module 1.2) and an ExpressCard 34/54 slot.

The Asus C90 weighs 6.8 pounds with a 6-cell battery and is rated at 4.5 hours of battery life. The unit itself measures 14.4" x 10.6" x 1.7".

An overeager eBay seller is already listing the C90 for pre-order at $950 with a NVIDIA GeForce Go 8500 256MB graphics card and a DVD burner. All other essentials (including the processor, memory and HDD) must be purchased by the customer.

"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet.  A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
