Vigor performance laptops

Vigor Gaming Computer has launched several new laptops, all targeting the mid- to high-end. The peak is the Atlantis PRO (pictured), intended to be a desktop replacement: it boasts a 20-inch widescreen, capable of resolutions up to 1680x1050. It is also equipped with a Turion 64 X2 processor, and has graphics supplied by twin GeForce Go 7950 GTX cards. Two 250GB hard drives are linked in a RAID-0 configuration. Prices start at $2,799.

The regular Atlantis is more closely targeted at gamers, with two programmable buttons, and the ability to boost storage up to 750GB through RAID-0. While keeping the same video cards, a 17-inch screen boosts resolution to 1920x1200, and the CPU is replaced with a Core 2 Duo. A base system costs $2,419.

The Artorius PRO ($1,925) resembles the Atlantis, but uses a Centrino Core 2 Duo processor and a single GeForce 8700M GT card. 802.11n wireless is an option. Lastly, the Ares ($1,299) and Ares PRO ($1,899) are both 15.4-inch systems, with GeForce 8600M GT video cards. The latter sports 2GB of RAM, 120GB of storage and desktop Core 2 Duo chips up to 2.93GHz; the former switches back to mobile Core 2 Duos, and forces buyers to pick between a 1280x800 or matte 1680x1050 display. Standard on all machines is Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, TV tuning and DVD+/-R/RW, among other features.
