Fortunately, most of these issues can be mitigated. You can save money by skipping out on the 3D monitor and second SSD. And you can overlook its battery, weight, and trackpad issues by understanding that the Scorpius is best used as a desktop replacement. Its performance is simply off the charts, and complaining about its other problems is like complaining about how a Ferrari is expensive, bad with fuel economy, and doesn’t have enough cup holders.

The oft used saying "you get what you pay for" is particularly true in the case of the Eurocom Scorpius. What you get for your $5,297 is the fastest mobile processor available, not one but two of the fastest Nvidia graphics cards on the market, a gorgeous HD display, Blu-ray reading and writing capabilities, and a multi-color backlit keyboard. It may be heavy, and it may not be the flashiest gaming rig out there, but when it comes to sheer graphics horsepower, nothing else comes close. That's why it replaces the Alienware M18x as our Editors' Choice for high-end gaming laptops.
