The stats read like a high end desktop, from the hexa-core i7-990X to the GTX485M's in SLI which support the 1080p display, though the weight of 12.1lbs is a little lighter than most desktops. TechSpot had a chance to review this $5,400 laptop and they had quite a bit of fun doing it. As you can see from the image below, this notebook produces a lot of heat and you'd be foolish to place it on your lap but perhaps it would be handy for reheating a snack. When they tested the power the notebook pulled 85 watts at idle, 336W under load, making the 8 cell battery more of a UPS than anything. Check out the full review to see the long list of peripherals and some incredible gaming performance.
"Today we will be looking at the notebook equivalent of the above mentioned Shift desktop system, known as the Titan 17. Our evaluation system consists of an Intel Core i7-990X Extreme Edition processor, a hexa-core desktop CPU operating at 3.46 GHz.
