Is it possible to gain something when one removes something? iBUYPOWER is proud to announce our ultra thin gaming laptop, the 17-inch Battalion Ultra-thin - where all excesses were trimmed, leaving only absolute performance.

Created from the ever increasing need to be mobile and be nimble, the new Battalion Ultra-thin sports everything a relentless gamer could want: a theatrical 17.3-inch Full HD 1920x1080 screen, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 700-series graphics, the latest Intel Core-i7 processors, and excellent battery life. And while all that's on the inside of the new Battalion hails to performance junkies, it's what's on the outside that shows "less is more" is a great thing. Built around strong yet striking dark aluminum, the new Battalion is the thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop.





"It used to be that the biggest notebooks carried the biggest power, but that's not the case anymore," remarked Darren Su, Vice President of iBUYPOWER. "Our new Battalion demonstrates that you don't have to sacrifice on mobility if you desire incredible gaming power. For those who want the best of both worlds, this is it."

The new Battalion Ultra-thin laptops are available immediately from iBUYPOWER, and are available in two configurations starting from $1429.

To celebrate, iBUYPOWER is also launching Laptop Gaming Week, a full week-long sales event to celebrate just how powerful laptops have become. All laptops sold during Laptop Gaming Week come with free shipping, and may also have a number of other available promotions.

I don't mean to bash, but doesn't the fact that it is a 17.3" model diminish the advantage of having an ultrathin laptop?
Offcourse thinner is always better (without taking the cooling 'challenge' into account), but it seems rather trivial for such a big laptop.
Also the thickness is 0.85" fyi, it is not mentioned in the article.
