WidowPC has just announced a new laptop that they are claiming to be the first-ever notebook to feature a dual core processor, the Sting 917X2. While the dual core lappie bit isn't necessarily true, the spec sheet for this monster 11.3-pound rig reads like a gamer's wish list (please excuse us while we catch our breath): AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ (other options are available as well), 17-inch widescreen 1900 x 1200 WUXGA+ SuperBrite LCD, nVidia 7800 GTX graphics card with PCI-Express, up to 2GB of 400 MHz dual channel DDR RAM, dual SATA drives for as much as 240GB of storage, dual optical drive bays for optional dual-layer DVD burners, 7-in-1 memory card reader, optional TV tuner with remote, front panel LCD with media controls, built-in webcam, 2 FireWire ports, 4 USB 2.0 ports, serial port, infrared port, parallel port, external keyboard/mouse port, DVI, S-Video in and out, audio in/out, digital audio out, and 802.11a/b/g. Whew! Anyway, the catch here is that they're only accepting preorders pending the arrival of the dual-core chips from AMD, but if you plunk down your $3447 (for the base model, naturally) it sounds like you'll get your sting-on before the end of the year.
