Default Quad core Laptop

XtremeNotebooks launches quad-core Xtreme 917V laptop - Engadget

Although being in the presence of a quad-core laptop doesn't have the same allure it did just months ago, packin' a Core 2 Quad processor into a 2.35-inch thick enclosure still manages to get us all hot and bothered (literally, we mean). The latest mobile gaming rig to come equipped with such a workhorse is XtremeNotebooks' Xtreme 917V (yeah, a rebadge of Sager's NP9260), which also features a 17-inch display, dual NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX GPUs, a dual-layer DVD writer, multicard reader, integrated webcam / speakers, up to 4GB of DDR2 RAM, room for three 250GB hard drives, a dedicated GPU cooling solution, optional TV tuner, gigabit Ethernet, WiFi, and a whole host of ports to boot. Granted, this sucka can only chug along for 60 minutes or so on its 12-cell battery, tips the scales at close to 12 oh-so-solid pounds, and starts at $2,399, but we know there's still a few of you out there willing to give it some love.

**** dude, 2,399 isn't really that much when you compare an equally-priced Dell, Hp, Etc.

I hope it comes with a cooler to go between the laptop and your lap, cause i dont even want to imagine how hot that quad is stuffed in a laptop.

60 minutes sounds like a good battery life time. So beside the 12lb weight of the laptop, yoiu need to carry like 3~4 battery's with you.

Non the less, its cool they finally got quad core in lap-tops.

What a big beast. I wonder how hot it'll run though. 4 cores seems a lot for a laptop.

Unless the person is doing a lot of editing and design, on the go.
