    The future is here, and AVADirect is readily expanding its offerings with hardware to prepare for it. For those who need ultimate performance on the go, AVADirect can feed your need for mobile speed with the Clevo P270WM. Based off of the Intel X79 chipset and Sandy Bridge-E processors, end-users can expect performance increases as much as 35-50 percent while keeping current and ahead of the curve for their much needed productivity, efficiency, and entertainment. Promising new features give the Clevo P270WM a name and reputation that is surely to leave a lasting impression for those who have it at their fingertips. The industry rookie, relative to age rather than experience, has no limits to its depth of functionality.

    The P270WM's design shapes the ground we stand on by creating new standards for mobile desktop replacements. The revolutionary X79-fueled P270WM, being the successor of the world renowned Clevo X7200, supports all of the functionality provided by its older brother. Three 9.5 inch hard drives, with optional RAID, two USB 3.0 ports, SLI support, HD LED screen, HDMI 1.4a support, and the recently re-designed express card slot for third-party expansion are still key features of the newly offered Clevo P270WM Gaming Notebook.

    The Nvidia GTX 580M 2 GB comes standard in the Clevo P270WM and offers SLI support for gaming duality. The GPU offers 384 CUDA cores, or 768 when in SLI. Furthermore, the victor of desktop replacements offers the Quadro 5010M 4 GB for the elitist AutoCAD or developing engineer. Combined with the support of Quad-channel DDR3 SODIMM RAM and speeds up to 1866 MHz, creating a configuration suitable for your tasks is as simple as a few clicks on AVADirect's website. The board features a total of four SODIMM slots expandable up to 32 GB. The P270WM includes full 3D support, which has never been provided in a desktop replacement until now. End-users will more importantly be interested in the first-ever backlit keyboard integrated in the P270WM notebook. Clevo has not received outstanding remarks in the past for their lack of aesthetically pleasing designs, but a backlit keyboard changes everything enthusiasts have grown to know about Clevo's design.

    AVADirect will begin to accept pre-orders for the X79 high-end gaming notebook as of today. The base price starts at around $3000.00 and will feature the Intel core i7 3930K, GTX 580M 2 GB, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM at 1333 MHz, 750 GB 7200 RPM hard disk, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    Taken off their website...

    Go buy a motherf**king PC then.

    you can build an absolute BEAST with $3000 and but that would be 'sacrificing Portability for performance'

    BUT LETS FACE IT something like this is hardly gonna be as light as an ultraportable. Im guessing at least 6 or 7Kg+ - Dell's M18X starts from at 5.41Kg and thats before you add SLi graphics and all the other junk to make it comparable to this one.

    Portability??? WHAT portablility exactly? youre gonna need a forklift truck just to transport that damn thing.

    The battery for this is actually just a cart with 10 car batteries on it...battery life is in the 25 minute range.

    Beast or not, still a lot easier than toting around a desktop, regardless of form-factor...I would rather plug in two cords (AC Adapter & mouse) than several compared to a desktop...oh, and let's not forget about the monitor, keyboard, and/or anything else you need to game to your liking...I see most people using this for visual editing work that are in the field, or are in and out of the office.

    Laptops are a volatile ground. From the Ultraportable to the Ultraperformace. This like Ultrabooks make no sense to me. As it's been mentioned the battery life has to abysmal as well as the weight. If ya plan to leave it plugged in and use it as a compact desktop computer, then win all the way. However, that "portability" was just defeated hmmmm...

    Why do Ultrabooks make no sense to you? A thin lightweight extremely portable notebook doesn't make sense? Why?

    thats just your personal preference.

    Ive been to a fair few lan games with some of my older full ATX rigs and sure its bulky and takes a bit of time to set up. but on the plus side i get to use a bigger screen, have better sound, better performance and better thermals then all of the above crammed into a laptop.

    as for being out and about with this beast - refer to my forklift truck comment. Its obviously going to be heavy and it is not recommended for 'use in the field' due to the weight, but in an office its fine. Many times have i lugged a heavy old 14.1" laptop to work to load up some CoD2 or oblivion while on shift

    Portability for people like me: I travel halfway across the world to study, and in summer I go back. I move my laptop a grand total of 2 times a year, so this is rather "portable" compared to a full tower.

    But a desktop machine and display just looks so out of place on my yacht. And don't even get me started on the rear seat of the Bentley.

    (e.g. there's your real target market. Not people who "need" anything but rather have tons of cash. Like W1zzard. :roll:)
