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.

Looking for ports? The X10 has an eSATA and IEEE 1394 port, DVi and HDMI output, S/PDIF and line in for audio, a TV tuner, gigabit Ethernet, a 7-in-1 media card reader, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless networking, and four USB 2.0 ports. The units also feature a 3D stereo enhanced sound system, a built-in mic, five integrated speakers, and a 2 megapixel webcam.

Naturally, all this hardware doesn’t com cheap: pre-order pricing starts at $1,859, although customers who order before October 30 will receive a 10 percent discount.
