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+

This is according to their official website:

 

 

  • Processor: 4th Generation Intel® Core™ Mobile Processors thru Extreme Edition
  • Memory: 1600 MHz DDR3 (32GB Max)
  • Display: 17" WUXGA (1920 x 1080) widescreen, matte finish
  • Video Cards: Single or Dual (SLI) Nvidia GeForce™ GTX 770M or 880M
  • Video RAM: 6GB dedicated DDR5 VRAM for 770M, 8GB for 880M - per GPU
  • Hard Drives: Up to 2 SATA III drives, plus up to 2 mSATA drives, RAID 0 and 1 capability

 

 

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.

Yeah. Modifying your own PC/laptop is cheaper. It's possible to make a decent gaming PC for around $1,200. I bet the $4,500+ price tag for that laptop is for the name/logo.

No. I meant what do you mean by "low profile"? Like one of those skinny laptops? (Or the notebooks or whatever people call them)

That is absurdly overpriced. There isn't even an SSD drive included into that, complete waste of money, scew paying $4000 for a laptop.

Here, this is still far more expensive and probably more than you'd need, but better than over $4500 and these have better features as well, will definitely run all the games you want.

Asus Laptop $2200

- 24GB RAM

-4GB Nvidia 880m Graphics card.
- Two 128 gb solid state drives.
- 1TB HDD

- i7

Or this one for $1999 which is much nicer in my opinion, backlit keyboard, cheaper, lighter.
MSI
 

- 24GB Ram
- 1TB HDD

- 3 x 128GB SSD

- backlit keyboard

- 8.6 pounds.

- NVIDIA 870m 6GB

Both of their laptop series comes with a Crucial M550 256GB mSATA SSD.

Regular HDD are optional.

Cheapest pre-configured cost $2,769.85

For that amount, I can build a powerful desktop

Because home premium is the only thing that you can get for the price of 8, and that's limited to 16gb RAM.
