Notice something interesting in there?  Look at the last card listed in that last bullet.  "AMD Radeon HD 8950."  Could it be a typo, inaccurate, or a slip of the lip?  Since we've heard the Erazer won't be available till June and haven't heard anything official on the 8950 there's no telling.

A good looking case design and some interesting specs, including integrated water cooling, have us interested in getting our hands on the Erazer and running it through it's paces when it hits.

On graphics side Dual GTX 660 seems kind of weak solution and AMD Radeon 8950 sounds interesting. Also a micro-ATX motherboard inside that case also limits the capabilities of the PC expansion.

I'm actually shocked to see them doing something like this.

I would have thought they'd make a gaming laptop to go against Alienware (+ others) before doing a desktop.

Personally I would have liked to have seen a high build quality gaming laptop without the plastic/laser light show we usually end up with.

@orvtrebor The Y580 can work pretty well as a gaming laptop. i7-3630QM, 2GB GTX 660m, and a 1080P screen.

Certainly not an ultra-spec laptop or anything, but if you want a gaming laptop under $1k, it's hard to beat.

Ahh yup that's not bad at all, I don't like that style of keyboard (Prefer the style of the business laptops) but the look/spec is solid. 660's good enough, the price is great.

So strap some angled plastic and blue LEDs on the front of a standard mid-tower ATX case and suddenly it becomes a "good looking case design"??

Looks like you lose all your expansion slots for the cooling since they still had to fit everything in their generic ATX mid-tower form factor.

I see a chipset fan and a VRM fan. Airflow must be pretty shocking to need those, and how much noise will you end up having to suffer? Case plastic is OTT, cable management is messy and mATX is restrictive. Overall, this will have to be pretty cheap to make the design concessions and component limitations worth it.

If they're really putting an Extreme i7 in there, then it's an X79 chipset. Those chipsets and VRMs get hot as all hell when overclocked. The rampage IV extreme has a chipset fan too. Even the capacitors start getting really hot when they're pushing over 200 Watts, and it's not hard to take a 3960X to over 200 Watts.
