Have you ever looked at your laptop and thought – gee, this thing is too portable and too slow! What I really want is a suitcase that includes a processor more powerful than 99% of desktops. Something that is really going to melt my face, or at least whatever table I sit it on.
You have? Then Maingear has you covered with the updated Titan 17.
As the name “Titan” implies, this is not your typical laptop. Measuring 2.2 inches thick, it looks like something out of a 1980′s vision of the future rather than a real, modern laptop. But the ridiculous profile becomes understandable once you realize that this laptop can pack a Core i7 3960X processor. Just to be absolutely clear, that’s the desktop version, packing six cores with a base clock speed of 3.3 GHz. As of the time of this writing, it is the most powerful consumer processor in the world.
The Titan 17 doesn’t slack in other areas to fit the larger processor, either. It can pack up two Nvidia GTX 580Ms in SLI as well as 32GB of RAM and up to three hard drives. Also included is a 17.3″ display with 1080P resolution and LED backlighting and a BigFoot Networks Killer wireless network adapter.
The base configuration of the Titan 17 runs $3,499 and is equipped with a Core i7 3930K along with a single Nvidia GTX 580M. Going all-out for the Extreme Edition processor and SLI bumps the price up to just over $4500. And you know what? That’s not nearly as much money as I expected.
