"We designed the LAN Warrior for gamers that need more power than a gaming laptop can provide," said Darren Su, Vice President of iBUYPOWER. "With the space for 2 dual-slot video cards and a liquid cooled Intel Core i7 Processor, the LAN Warrior is just as powerful as systems twice its size."

iBUYPOWER chose the sleek NZXT Rogue case for its 3 120mm ventilation fan ports (expandable to 5 120mm fans) to keep the LAN Warrior running cool during even the most intense battles. The LAN Warrior's ESATA, Audio out, Card Reader, and two USB ports are all conveniently located on the system's front panel. Additionally, the system's removable power supply bracket and motherboard tray make future expansion a breeze. The case also features a lock on the front cable and pad lock loop on the back panel to protect the LAN Warrior's components from theft.
The LAN Warrior starts at just $999 MSRP and is available now exclusively at www.iBUYPOWER.com. iBUYPOWER systems come standard with 1 year limited warranty and lifetime technical support.
