CyberPowerPC has announced in a press release that it is launching a new gaming laptop, called FangBook X7 that is part of the company’s latest Fang Series of high-performance portable PC aimed at gamers. According to the manufacturer, the X7 is a “blazingly fast, terrifyingly powerful, and absolutely unique gaming notebook” that is based on Intel's HM77 Express Chipset and comes with a pre-installed Windows 8 64-bit operating system.
