Thanks for the memory, indeed! Ottawa, Ont.’s Eurocom has just announced the availability of the first 2.5-terabyte notebook computer, a “mobile workstation” with an unprecented anmount of storage.
If you really take your mobile computing seriously — as in, you’re into serious CAD applications, animation rendering or video editng – Eurocom says they broke the world’s record for notebook storage with 2.5TB (terabyte) of hard drive space in its Intel Core i7- based Panther Super Notebook (model # D900F).
To put this amount of hard drive space into perspective, this $4,140 server-class workstation has enough storage to fit 3,550 movies, 800,000 songs or 2.5 million photos! The 2.5TB is really 4x 640GB disk drives.
Other features of this 17-inch Panther PC includes an Intel quad-core i7-920 processor (upgradeable to i7-975), 6GB of system memory (3x 2GB of DDR3-1333 RAM) and on-board Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI, eSATA, DVi ports and full size keyboard.
The 64-bit Windows 7 machine is quite a beast, though, as it weights just under 12 pounds and only has a battery life of 1 hour (really, to serve as a back-up in case of power failure) – but depending on what you do for work (er, or fun), this Canadian laptop is one powerful desktop workstation replacement.
