Not one to be outdone by the likes of Dell, Alienware and Gateway, Commodore Gaming is also offering up Core i7-based gaming rigs. Unlike the big boys, however, Commodore's choosing not to expand its current lineup any further; instead, it's simply offering up the new pieces of silicon as options in the machines it already sells. Don't venture over expecting anything to be cheap, else you'll be sorely disappointed. Full release is after the break.
