    Gaming PC specialist CyberPowerPC launched its first entry-level notebook that leverages Intel's Iris Pro 5200 integrated graphics, the Zeus Hercules. Tucking in an Intel Core i7-4750HQ processor, which is a variant of the Intel Core "Haswell" processor with a larger integrated GPU featuring 40 execution units, and L4 eDRAM cache, the notebook features a 14-inch full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) screen. The notebook is also one of the first to integrate Intel's Hyperbaric cooling technology, which works to minimize hot-spots.

    In addition to the Core i7-4750HQ processor, it features 8 GB of RAM (expandable to 16 GB), SSD and HDD-based storage options, and connectivity that includes Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, gigabit Ethernet, three USB 3.0 "SuperSpeed" ports, and a multi-format card reader. Windows 8 Pro comes pre-installed. Backed by a 1-year warranty, Zeus Hercules notebooks from CyberPowerPC start at US $1,039.

    Integrated GPU only and still THAT fat?

    Why no one wants to learn a thing or two from Apple, regarding design and material quality (too much plastic everywhere)?

    If they start integrating metal everywhere (and provide a half decent touchpad), it will end up costing about the same as an Apple.

    apples overheat because of how thin they are that's basically why no one copies them

    It's fatter because everything is not soldered onto the mainboard and it uses a standard height 2.5" HDD.


    It's just a standard Clevo W740SU and Clevo has never really been a company to make metal laptops.

    Anand did a mini-review on the Clevo if you're interested in the CPU benchmarks.

    Never came across one which overheated. I tried diablo 3 on a MBA 11" and it worked just fine (aside from crappy graphics). Dota 2 on MBP worked just fine too. Granted both are not demanding games, but it should still tax the system quite heavily.
