Eurocom goes full bore with the D900C PHANTOM-X Mobile Workstation

It wasn't long ago when purchasing a notebook computer meant compromising on performance. Over the past few years, AMD and Intel have made great strides to improve mobile processor performance and provide feature-filled supporting chipsets.

There likely aren't many that would complain about the processing power of today's high-end dual-core notebooks, but for those that crave more power, Eurocom is laying it on thick. The company announced today that its D900C PHANTOM-X Mobile Workstation will be available with Core 2 Quad processors.

Quad-core offering will include the 1066MHz FSB Q6600 and Q6700 Core 2 Quad processors along with 1333 MHz FSB E6x50 Core 2 Duo processors. In addition, graphics options include the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX, GeForce Go 8700 GT or  NVIDIA Quadro FX1600M running in single-card or SLI mode.

Eurocom, however, doesn't stop there. Up to 750GB of storage space is supported with 750GB with RAID 0/1/5 via a SATA-300 interface. Customers also have the choice of a multi-DVD burner or a Blu-ray drive to handle optical storage/HD playback needs.

Other features include an integrated 1.3MP webcam, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11n or SuperG 108 wireless networking, internal HDTV tuner and a theater audio system.

"It's a workstation-caliber PC complete with Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) in a notebook form factor," said Eurocom president Mark Bialic. "It may be large, but this is one extremely fast notebook that replaces desktop based workstation with over 1 hour of built-in UPS battery."

The D900C PHANTOM-X measures 15.8" x 11.9" x 2.05" and weighs in at under 12 pounds. Prices start at $2,726 USD for a 17.1” base system with Core 2 Duo E6600 processor.

Not a single word mentions the screen. It better be a first class display if they want to market this as a portable workstation.
