For mobile PC road warriors willing to spend top dollar on the best gaming laptops, Eurocom's massive desktop replacements usually do the trick thanks to its premium hardware components. The latest Scorpius laptop looks all set to faithfully maintain Eurocom's high-end heritage with support for both CrossireX and SLI configurations to go with its 17.3-inch display. A stock-configured Scorpius costs $1,793, but that can easily skyrocket when you starting amping up on the visuals, for starters. A pair of 4GB GeForce GTX 680M graphics cards or dual 2GB Radeon HD 7970Ms will comfortably fit in to the Scorpius' spacious (albeit bland-looking) chassis, along with some huge storage space equal to three SSDs or hard drives plus an optional mSATA SSD. Splurging on a Core i7-3920XM processor nets you a 2.9GHz chip (up to 3.8GHz) with the option to go all out on the RAM at 32GB. All that computing goodness crammed in to the belly of something barely portable is remarkable, and if you can afford the price tag, you might even have more power than some desktop PCs out there, too.
