The 15.6-inch laptop houses a Core i9-9980HK CPU, GeForce RTX 2070 GPU, and up to 64 GB of RAM with 16 TB of SSD storage across two M.2 2280 slots and a 2.5-inch SATA III bay.

If you're a hardcore gamer or professional content creator, you're going to want as much storage as possible out of your laptop meaning that you'll likely be limited to large chassis designs. The heavy 17.3-inch Eurocom Sky X9C, for example, can be configured with up to 28 TB of internal storage compared to just 1 TB on most Ultrabooks.

Eurocom has taken this one step further by offering up to 16 TB of SSD storage for its smaller 15.6-inch Nightsky RX15 laptop to be the highest available for any lightweight laptop of its category — according to Eurocom, at least. This was made possible by new 4 TB Sabrent Rocket NVMe SSDs whereas most other NVMe SSDs have been limited to 1 TB or 2 TB capacities. Since the Nightsky RX15 has a total of three internal storage bays (2x M.2 2280 + 1x 2.5-inch SATA III), the system can be configured with two Sabrent Rocket M.2 SSDs and a single 8 TB 2.5-inch SATA III SSD for a total of 16 TB.

The Nightsky RX15 is not unique, however. Eurocom employs Clevo chassis designs across its product line that are also used by other resellers including Schenker. Thus, it's not impossible to find or equip other laptops with the same 4 TB Sabrent Rocket drives for an insane amount of storage space.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
