One look at the imposing bulk of Digital Storm's X17E laptop and you'll know it has some serious gaming muscle bulging underneath. The driving force behind this 17-inch powerhouse is an Intel Core i7-3910XM, which Digital Storm throttles at a blistering 4.5GHz, an impressive feat but nonetheless means you won't be sitting this on your lap anytime soon. Its 1,920 x 1,080 display runs in tandem with either a GeForce GTX 680M or AMD Radeon 7970M (depending on which camp you side on). A customizable backlit keyboard, Blu-Ray, USB 3.0 and a 32GB RAM capacity comes in with the X17E's baseline price, although that's likely to increase should you want to splurge more on the hardware. Inspecting the beast underneath shows fan meshes for the GPU and CPU, with vents populating the laptop's entire right side, which should come in especially handy when the processor cranks up to its full speed.
