Here is a new laptop from HP that I would not mind owning. It is their new EliteBook 8740w. There are stock configurations but how about this custom configuration:
i7-940QM Extreme Processor 2.13 GHz
17" 1920 x 1200 Antiglare DreamColor LED display
nVidia Quadro FX 5000m 2GB
32 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM (about $9,000 for this memory alone)
Two 500 GB 7200RPM drives (SSD's available)
Two USB3 I/O ports
Many other features but for some strange reason the OS that is included is FreeDOS without other upgrade options
All this for only $14,816 plus a current 18% discount ($12,149.12), maybe I will buy a new car instead.
First time I have seen a laptop from one of the big boys that really can be a real NLE candidate.
the issue with it is its using a mobile processor.
for $3800k you can get a desktop 980x in a laptop with 3 750g
HDDs. and 12 gig ram...
its underpowered and absurbly over priced.
but yes its interesting to see the attempt at pro level.
