A small laptop manufacturer, Xtreme Laptops has launched the first gaming laptop based on the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 and the Q6700 chipset. Yes, these people have found a way with which to cram the new overpowered processor into a portable package that weighs a hefty 12Â½ pounds(Ouch.. my aching shoulders).
The Xtreme laptop comes with a price tag that starts from a bare-bone configuration priced at $2,500 up to almost $5,000 for maximum feature loaded versions. Standard features included a 17â€ widescreen display, one or two Nvidia Geforce Go 8700M GT or 7950 GTX graphics cards, a maximum of 3 hard drives configurable to either RAID 0,1 and 5, a 4.1 version speaker(yup, thereâ€™s a subwoofer some where in there), a webcam, 12-cell battery and much-much more goodies. WOW!!!!
But, yes, there is a but, what do you use it for? Well, nothing much according to Cnetâ€™s Tech News for not much software is around to benefit from the advantages of the Older Core 2 Duo nonetheless the Quad core. So why make them? Maybe itâ€™s just to show that it could be done and done now. The Intel Quad core powered laptops might not have much of a use now but for tomorrow, who knows. We humans have a knack for making use of utterly useless technologies and making them into something very much useful. Besides, even the OEM manufacturer of the casing used for the said laptop hasnâ€™t certified itâ€™s use for the new Quad core with very much good basis. Yes they might consume less electricity but that doesnâ€™t make them any cooler than previous processors(Might need an external micro air conditioner or a cooling system with an external radiator(OOhhh.. ahh HOOOTâ€¦HOOOT).
So what do we do? Well what else, wait for a better use for the latest and hottest technologies that come out of their laboratories and hope they do make a good impact on life on this earth. In the near future we hope.(Can it stop global warming???)
