Mice are small and timid creatures, right? Well, be prepared to see what this giant ‘Mouse’ is capable of: with the power of Intel’s recently launched Sandy Bridge platform backing it along with 16 jaw-dropping gigabytes of DDR3 memory, the new G-Tune NEXTGEAR-NOTE i730PA1 laptop from Mouse Computer is all set to make cheese out of the existing range of ‘killer notebooks’ in the market today.
Fortunately, it seems that a Japanese OEM by the name of Mouse Computer has got something up its sleeves for users who crave nothing but the fastest, meanest hardware in their notebooks. This ‘something’ comes in the form of a new mobile computer lineup known as the G-Tune NEXTGEAR-NOTE i730 series, but it is the most expensive configuration which really caught our interest:
Yep, you read it correctly. In addition to offering the latest Intel Core i7-2920XM processor (which is the most powerful mobile processor to date), a 160GB Intel SSD and a Blu-ray optical disk drive, the NEXTGEAR-NOTE i730PA1 notebook also comes bundled with 16 whopping gigabytes of DDR3 memory. This is twice the maximum amount of RAM most first-gen Core i-x series processors can support, so imagine the kind of performance gains and ease of multitasking one can expect to experience on a notebook with such specifications. Oh, and it also has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX460M graphics card which comes with 1.5GB of dedicated VRAM, so gamers can take this little monster for a spin without having to worry about their onscreen characters fire a gun in slow-motion.
Of course, don’t expect such a powerful laptop to be anything close to ‘affordable’, for Mouse Computer has listed the NEXTGEAR-NOTE i730PA1 as having a starting price of 279,930 yen or approximately US$3367. Last but not least, Mouse Computer does not appear to offer international shipping services, so the only way to get your hands on one of these monsters is to either use a concierge service or beg a Japanese friend to purchase it on your behalf.
