PC maker offers six-core laptop with 4TB of storage

The Panther 2.0 is due to ship later this month from Eurocom

A Canadian PC maker is offering a laptop with a massive 4TB of storage and Intel's fastest six-core processor, a rare combination of such high-end parts for a portable computer.

The Panther 2.0 is designed to be a workstation replacement for running high-end graphics and CAD (computer-aided design) programs, PC maker Eurocom said on its website, where it has started taking preorders for the machine.

The 4TB of storage equals or exceeds that offered with most desktops and even servers. It's housed in four slots, with a separate drive in each. Processor options include Intel's Core i7 Extreme Edition or Xeon 5600 chips, which have up to six processor cores and run at speeds of up to 3.33GHz. Those chips are typically found in high-end desktops or servers.

The machine has a 17.3-inch screen and comes with up to 24GB of memory and a 3.0-megapixel webcam, better than the 1.3- or 2.0-megapixel webcams on most laptops.

It can be configured to offer top graphics performance using multiple Nvidia GTX480M and Advanced Micro Devices ATI Radeon HD5870 graphics cards. It supports AMD's CrossFire X and Nvidia's Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technologies to link graphics cards together.

The laptops are expected to start shipping later this month. A system with Intel's fastest, 3.33GHz Core i7-980X processor, 4TB of storage and 24GB of memory could reach C$9,000 (US$8,634). A base configuration with a 2.8GHz Core i7 processor, 320GB of storage, an ATI Radeon HD5870 graphics card and 6GB of memory is C$2,999. OS options include Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, and are priced separately.

Eurocom staff weren't immediately available to discuss international availability.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
