Another day, another new one from iBUYPOWER
. But this one's different, or so they tell us. You see, the M865TU is being hailed as the most powerful 15-inch gaming laptop ever
, and considering that Alienware's M17x
can't be included here, we'd argue these guys actually have an outside shot at being right. Within, you'll find a 2.93GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T9800, up to 4GB DDR3 memory, a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 graphics card and a 15.6-inch WXGA (1,680 x 1,050) panel. It'll also ship with an eight-cell battery, 250GB HDD and a dual-layer DVD writer, and it's available now for as low as $1,499. Don't expect that "most powerful" label to apply to Mr. Base Configuration, though.
iBUYPOWER Launches Most Powerful 15 Inch Gaming Notebook Ever M865TU is locked and loaded with 1680x1050 HD Widescreen display, NVIDIA GTX 260 1GB Graphics Card and 4 GB DDR3 Memory
El Monte, CA – June 2, 2009 – iBUYPOWER, one of the leading gaming systems manufacturers in the world, is excited to announce the most powerful 15 inch Gaming Notebook ever -- M865TU. Starting at $1,499, the M865TU offers gamers a slew of processors to choose from, including the 2.93GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T9800, up to 4GB DDR3 memory, the NVIDIA GTX 260 1GB graphics card, and a vibrant 15.6" WXGA widescreen LCD display with a 1680x1050 high definition resolution. Users can even configure their systems with the Intel X-25-M SSD for blazing fast load times.
The NVIDIA GTX 260 graphic card, the best GPU available in a 15" notebook, allows gamers to take full advantage of NVIDIA's PhysX Technology. The combination creates an unbelievably detailed lifelike gaming environment that was previously unavailable on a 15 inch notebook.
"Until now gamers looking for a notebook that could match desktop performance were forced to lug around laptops that were at least 17", and anything but portable," said Darren Su, Vice President of iBUYPOWER. "With the M865TU we packed desktop replacement type power into a notebook that gamers will enjoy traveling with. "
The M865TU Gaming Notebook is available now exclusively at www.iBUYPOWER.com. iBUYPOWER systems come standard with a 1 year limited warranty and lifetime technical support.
