Digital Storm, a manufacturer of high-end PCs, has announced four new heavy duty gaming laptops. All four notebooks, from the 15.6-inch Javelin and Lance to the 17.3-inch Krypton and Behemoth, pack new Nvidia 800M series GPU. As gaming notebooks go, Digital Storm’s newest offerings range from relatively affordable, to extremely expensive. So there’s something here for almost every budget.
At $1,196, the 15.6-inch Javelin is the cheapest of Digital Storm’s newest bunch. It features an Intel Core i7 4700MQ CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU with 2GB of RAM, 1080p resolution, 8GB of RAM, a 750GB 7,200 rpm hard drive, and a CD/DVD writer.
Stepping up to the 15.6-inch Lance, which starts at $1,430, grants you the same exact specs you’d get with the $1,196 Javelin, with one notable exception. At this price, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU on the base model Lance has double the RAM (4GB) that’s present on the cheapest Javelin (2GB).
With the Krypton, you trade in the 15.6-inch display for a 17.3-incher, though the resolution remains at 1080p. Aside from that, the $1,478 base version’s specs are identical when compared with the Lance, and include an Intel Core i7 4700MQ CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU with 4GB of RAM, 8GB of RAM, a 750GB 7,200 rpm hard drive, and a CD/DVD writer.
Then there’s the Behemoth. While the entry level Javelin, Lance and Krypton are bunched pretty close together in terms of price, the asking price for the most basic Behemoth surpasses the two kilo-buck mark. Starting at $2,289, the Behemoth enjoys a substantial upgrade on the components front over Digital Storm’s other new, base level notebooks, as you might expect.
The $2,289 Digital Storm Behemoth sports an Intel Core i7 4810MQ CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M GPU with 8GB of RAM, a 17.3-inch 1080p display, 16GB of RAM, a 750GB 7,200 rpm hard drive paired with a 128GB SSD, and a CD/DVD multi-drive.
Each of these notebooks is encased in a black, ninja-like chassis, and all but the Javelin feature keyboard back-lighting. The Javelin, Lance, Krypton and Behemoth are all configurable systems, and though you can snatch up a Javelin, Lance or Krypton for well under $2,000, you can customize all of Digital Storm’s new notebooks (save for the Javelin) and drive their price tags past $2,000. For instance, the Behemoth can be souped up to the point where it nears the $4,000 mark.
Regardless of your budget, there’s something here for almost every bank account.
All four models are available starting today on the Digital Storm website. To celebrate the laptops’ launch, Digital Storm is giving away a base model Krypton. If you’re interested, you can enter the contest right here.
