Eurocom rolls out ridiculously priced laptops with up to 28 TB storage
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.
