The Sky X4C / X7C laptops can easily replace a gaming desktop system, as they integrate desktop-grade components such as the Core i9-900KS CPU and the RTX 2080 or Quadro P5000 GPUs. Additionally, users can add up to 128 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 20 TB of storage space through 2x NVMe slots and 2x 2.5-inch SATA bays.

Most laptop OEMs are looking to strike a balance between portability and features, but there are notable exceptions. Eurocom, for example, is clearly not willing to prioritize portability over power, as the Canadian company is well-known for integrating desktop-grade CPUs and GPUs into its high-end customizable laptops.

Eurocom even managed to fit the latest Core i9-9900KS gaming CPU from Intel into its 15.6-inch Sky X4C and 17.3-inch Sky X7C models. The specs also include:

  • Up to a desktop-grade RTX 2080 GPU from Nvidia (or Quadro P5000 exclusive for the X7C)
  • 60 Hz UHD or 60/120/144 Hz FHD display options
  • Up to 128 GB DDR4 RAM via two memory slots
  • Up to 20 TB storage space through  2x NVMe M.2 slots + 2x SATA 2.5-inch bays
  • Port selection: USB-C 3.1 / Thunderbolt 3, 3x USB-A 3.1, USB-A 2.0, 2x miniDP 1.3, HDMI 2.0, 4x audio jacks, GbE connector
  • Sound Blaster X Pro-Gaming or ESS SABRE HiFi DACs  
  • Improved cooling setup that allows for CPUa nd GPU overclocking


As previously mentioned, portability is not exactly a strong point for these laptops. Fully equipped, the X4C weighs 7.5 pounds with a 1.5-inch profile, while the X7C weighs 8.6 pounds with a 1.6-inch profile.

Prices for the i9-990KS versions start at US$2,520 (X4C) and US$2,499 (X7C).

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.
