BFG Deimos X-10 Notebook Offers Dual GPUs, 18.4-inch Display

Some people want a notebook computer for portability…but for others, portability is secondary to raw computing and gaming power. Those folks might want to take a look at the new Deimos X-10 notebook computer from BFG Technologies, which offers all the bells and whistles of a high-powered desktop gaming rig in a form factor that doesn’t quite require a hand truck to move from place to place. Although the Deimos X-10 does ship with its own backpack for moving it around.

“The Deimos X-10 SLI notebook is perfect for gamers and media enthusiasts who demand desktop performance but prefer the portability of a notebook,” said BFG’s senior marketing director John Malley, in a statement. “Deimos X-10 comes fully locked and loaded to deliver the ultimate HD mobile gaming and multimedia experience.”

So what can computing enthusiasts expect to lug in that backpack? The X-10 can be configured with either Intel Core 2 Duo, Quad, or Extreme CPUs, handles up to 8 GB of RAM, and offers three HDD drive bays for up to 1.5 TB of onboard storage. The X-10 features a 18.4-inch TFT LCD display with a native 1,920 by 1,080 resolution and can be configured to pack dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 280M 1GB graphics cards with SLI technology.
