How do dual GeForce Go 7800 GTX GPUs and AMD Turion64 power sound to you?

We brought you news of a dual graphics notebook from WickedPC last week and now Eurocom has announced a notebook with Dual-VGA NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX graphics and 64-bit AMD Turion64 processor technology.

The M590K Emperor can pack up to two NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX GPUs hooked up to a 19" 1680x1050 fast reponse LCD screen. If that is too much graphics power for your needs, lesser options are available including a single NVIDIA GeForce Go7800 GTX or a 256MB ATi Mobility Radeon X800XT Platinum Edition.

On the processor front, the M590K Emperor uses NVDIA CK804 core logic and can be equipped with either a Turion64 ML or MT processor. The notebook can also accommodate up to 2GB of PC3200 DDR RAM and up to a 120GB SATA-II 7200RPM hard drive. On the multimedia front, the notebook has an 8x dual-layer DVD burner, a 4-in-1 media reader,  four built-in speakers with SRS WOW audio technology, a built-in MCE TV tuner and an integrated webcam.

As far as connectivity goes, the M590K Emperor won't leave you wanting. It features 802.11a/b/g wireless, Bluetooth, GbE, five USB 2.0 ports, FireWire, S-Video, S/PDIF, HDTV, DVI-I and consumer-grade IR for the TV remote.

The M590K Emperor is truly a workstation/desktop replacement as it measures 18.74" x 13.5" x 1.16" and weighs in at a whopping 14.3 pounds. The unit will begin shipping later this month.

A 1680x1050 19" screen with a 7800 GTX SLI setup? WTF.

No kidding.

I'll keep my 1920x1200.

that's the native resolution.

It's Ok, Dell will come out with their version, the Renegade Commando XPS Type-R, with native resolution at 2972x2046, or some other proprietary and appropriately random screen resolution. Oh yeah, and it'll be a 7000:1 contrast ratio for instant-battery drain, which they'll tout as "instant de-charge (+20 a month)"

Ditto. Although you're probably talking about a laptop while I'm talking about an HP L2335.

yeah, nerds usually don't work out I guess.

However DTRs like this usually aren't meant to be on your lap, but replace the 30-50 lbs of desktop you might have with a tower, several loose cables and keboard, and an LCD...ofcourse the wegiht and bulk go up dramatically if you have a CRT.

Instead of taking a whole desktop too and from home to work or school, you use one of these. Granted you don't exactly lug them around to each and every class. If you only have to pick it up and move it once or twice a day at most then theres not big deal, and the power it gives you certainly doesn't dissapoint.


Weight really wouldn't be the weakness here, it would be the heat and noise. I've owned and worked with several DTRs and they can get quite annoying in quieter environments with the shrill whine of their small fans. I can take louder noise from larger desktop fans more than the annoying pitch of these screamers. I can't see how this one can be any quieter with two video cores.

Yeah, I have the P25-S609 and yeah, the battery life sucks. You don't buy one of these for mobility, but for portability.


Same as WickedPC's monstrosity

Based on the 3/4 view of both of these things, Eurocom and WickedPC are ordering this 'laptop' from the same OEM.

I guess this is something nice for those who are really tight on space, or wants something small an powerful for a LAN party. And maybe for some people who have money falling out of their asses.

the model is by clevo

however, eurocom actually does r and d with clevo so they could have a claim that it actually is theirs

widow, sager, alienware, are just resellers


How inspiring

You get one of the best laptops ever with a massive monitor and you go play a nice low-res CNN video...

WOW

Ummmm, crapola? Who wants to pay top dollar for a desktop replacement that's not dual core? Duh! A 12-inch core duo machine will probably be faster for any application that supports multi-threading than this heap, such as H.264 decoding.
