If you want to get the absolute best laptop configurations, try out the new Eurocom Sky X9C with 4K 17.3-inch display, desktop-grade I9-9900K CPU, up to 128 GB DDR4-2666 DRAM, dual RTX 2080 GPU and up to 28 TB of SSD storage via 3x M.2-2282 slots + 2X 2.5-inch bays.

Looking to replace your desktop gaming PC with a more portable laptop solution? We have been seeing quite a few OEMs cramming desktop-grade components into laptop form-factors for the past several years, yet nothing comes close to Eurocom’s configurations. In fact, the new Sky X9C and Tornado F7W models could easily replace a server since Eurocom now offers storage options of up to 28 TB NAND flash memory.

These ultra-high-end laptops come equipped with three M.2-2280 slots and two additional 2.5-inch bays, so demanding users can opt to include up to three Sabrent Rocket 4 TB NVMe SSDs plus two Micron 5100 8 TB SATA SSDs for the “small” price of US$10,700. But wait, why not include a desktop-grade i9-9900K CPU coupled with 128 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM plus dual RTX 2080 GPUs and a 17.3-inch 4K display for the incredibly low price of US$20,500? A bargain, if you ask me.

At least the port selection on the Sky X9C is generous and includes 2x USB 3.1 Gen2 / Thunderbolt 3 combo + 5x USB-A 3.0 connectors, 2x miniDP 1.3 + 1x HDMI 2.0 video outputs, dual-GbE NICs, 6-in-1 card reader and the usual audio jacks. Throw in a Sound Blaster X-Pro Gaming sound card in there, it is practically free.

These little monsters weigh only 12.1 lbs and also need a 780 W AC adapter. If 17.3-inch is too big for you, might want to look at the 15.6-inch models with more palatable prices. However, the smaller versions only allow for 24 TB maximum storage capacity.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
