Where do you get those wonderful toys?
XMG have announced another new gaming laptop, this time going for the world’s thinnest 17″ gaming laptop title with the C703. You might think that’s an odd record to attempt but 17″ is the sweet spot for gaming laptops, with a screen that’s big enough to be comfortable, but small enough to make for a portable machine. With some hefty specs to boot such as the impressive GTX 765M backing it up this is most definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market. If we can get one to test we’ll bring a full review soon.
Introducing the world’s thinnest 17” gaming laptop
The XMG C703 forged from pure aluminum, just 22mm thin
London— 29th August 2013 — Schenker Technologies UK Ltd, subsidiary of Schenker Technologies GmbH, today announced their XMG C703 super thin 17” gaming laptop. Housed within its sleek black aluminum chassis is a 4th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 765M graphics making the C703 one of the most powerful laptops in its class; and at only 22mm thin and weighing just 2.6kg, it’s the worlds thinnest and lightest too at this specification.
“The C703 has to be our most stylish laptop yet” remarked Neil Richards, Managing Director, Schenker Technologies UK, “Not only does it look and feel beautiful; the sheer power under the hood, light-weight design and up to 6 hour battery life makes it extremely versatile”.
Featuring 2GB NVIDIA Geforce GTX765M graphics, Intel Core i7 4700HQ 3.4GHz quad core processor and huge full HD 1920×1080 pixel 17” matte screen, the C703 is perfectly suited to power users looking for a thin and light, portable form factor. The screen and graphics combination is perfect for gaming and creative design, and while graphics performance is not required, the built-in NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically switches the C703 to utilise low powered Intel integrated graphics to save battery life.
“Thin, light, powerful, great battery life, huge HD screen and lots of fast storage, you can’t ask for much more from a seventeen inch laptop” added Neil Richards. The C703 can be configured with up to 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD and two 512GB mSATA SSDs. “If you like the design of a Macbook, but prefer PC, look no further.” Neil concluded.
The XMG C703 is available today, shipping around 18th September, priced from £1,124 inc VAT and includes a class leading 24 month collect and return warranty. More information can be found at http://mysn.co.uk/xmg-c703.
