Packard Bell Unveils Gaming Notebook With 'Attitude'

A 17 inch gaming notebook is hardly a new concept in "mobile" computing, but when it has a "street art cover" with "attitude" that "shows the crossover between video game culture and graffiti culture" it's time to down tools and get writing.

Packard Bell's iPower GX will, like any decent gaming notebook, feature a 1,920 x 1,200 display and aside from its street cred destroying urban stylings, it'll come packed with some pretty serious hardware. This will include an nVidia 9800M GTS with 1GB dedicated GDDR3 video memory, but more interestingly Intel's first Quad Core mobile processor, the Core 2 Quad Q9100.

This system, which in its highest spec can produce a 3DMark 06 score of 9,000 points, will also be available with an optional Blu-ray drive and feature Draft-N wireless. It'll be available in October with an estimated retail price of 1,499 Euros and though it seems to be possessed by the spirit of Poochie the Rockin' Dog, it does at least have some substance to back it up.

It looks like the crossbreed of an HP and a Samsung.

To me it looks like the Gateway P7811 FX laptop


Cheaper in the states however - $1399 which is less than &#83641000. Even with VAT or similar, this is a big discount!

Gateway sell a very limited range in the UK through a supermarket (I forget which one) but not this one, which they sell at a ridiculously good price in the states. I am sufficiently unhappy at importing one, paying VAT & import duty and not being able to use the warranty to get one (they are occasionally on ebay) but they are dirt cheap <&#163900! Try getting 9800m gfx and 17" screen for that in the UK!

I remember when they were a direct supplier in the UK - my dad had a gateway P75!
