Mother of All Laptops

By Deane Barker on August 17, 2007

First quad-core laptop hits U.S.: Here’s the mother of all laptops for you — quad-core processor, dual video cards, and up to three hard drives.

With no mobile quad-core parts in existence, the Xtreme 917V Accelerator turns to desktop CPUs, giving you a choice between the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 and the Q6700. Pricing starts at $3,359. Other niceties on this gaming laptop/mobile workstation include: a glossy widescreen 17-inch display (up to 1920×1200 resolution), one or two Nvidia GeForce Go 87000M GT or 7950 GTX graphics cards, and up to three hard drives in RAID 0, 1 or 5 configurations.

Nevermind cooling, how do they physically fit all those parts in a laptop case?
