Eurocom launches Blu-ray enabled laptop
In what may be the industry’s most over-achieving laptop, Eurocom is now selling the 17″ D900C PHANTOM-X starting at $2,726USD. Packed inside this 12 pound beast is 1066MHz FSB Intel Q6700 Core 2 Quad processors, up to 4GB of DDR2-800 RAM, and up to 750GB of hard drive space in your choice of RAID 0,1, or 5 configurations.

In case you were so inclined to use this 15.8″ x 11.9″ x 2.05″ computer for your home theater, you have the options to include a Blu-ray Disc drive, and TV tuner to go with the included HDCP compliant DVI output (DVI is compatible with HDMI with an adapter). The video is handled with your choice of NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX, GeForce Go 8700 GT or NVIDIA Quadro FX1600M video cards, or you can double-up and get a pair to operate in SLI mode. If that isn’t enough to satisfy you, it also comes with a built-in UPS for up to an hour of extended battery life. You can choose from a number of different Windows XP or Vista operating systems or install your own.

Other optional features include Bluetooth, Wireless SuperG 108Mbps or 802.11agn, internal 7-in-1 card reader, and a Matrox TripleHead2Go module to support up to three external monitors. There are, of course, a myriad of other options to chose from. This thing is billed as a “mobile workstation,” so it should meet everyone’s needs. Of course most people could probably do with the $100 laptop.

  1. I have no idea. Eurocom has the Blu-ray logo on there and they say it comes with a BD player but the customization options don’t even appear to show it available.
