It is made by Falcon Northwest, and repeatedly upgraded and then reintroduced to the market since at least seven years ago.
They call it the "Frag-Book DRX" (Desktop-Replacement). Although if I was their CEO, I would just cut out the "Frag-Book" before some internet flamewars start coining the phrase "Fag-Book".
Depending on the build, it ranges between $4,500 to $7,000+

So uh... is this good enough to run GTA V when it comes out to PC and when I can transfer my toon from PS3 to PC? XD.
I don't know about you guys. But this looks like, straight overkill. I mean, I think if I were to spend my dough on a Lenovo Y50, which is a LOW PROFILE laptop that the salesperson showed me how to turn off the illuminated lights, would not get my ass-kicked over a machine. Doesn't anyone remember PS3 launch day? People got robbed at gunpoint!
At least I would be losing $1,400 instead of somewhere north of $7K. I even made mathematical calculations between my crappy 2010 MacBook and the processing power of my potential Windows-running replacement. Calculated the benchmarks for the processor, video card, RAM bus speed and capacity, the Y50 would be able to provide processing power of 18.5 times faster, with quadruple the RAM capacity.
