Sager launches 15.6-inch Core i7 gaming notebook

Sager has released its first Core i7-powered gaming notebook, the 15.6-inch NP8690. The hardware maker is touting the portable PC as the world's most powerful gaming notebook of its size, with 1.6GHz, 1.73GHz or 2GHz quad-core CPUs; RAM is limited to a maximum of 4GB, however. The screen can be had with the standard 1600x900 resolution or a higher 1920x1080. Graphics are handled by NVIDIA's high-end GeForce GTX 280M. Security is also in place through a fingerprint scanner.

There is otherwise an HDMI output and optical audio port, while the full-size keyboard offers a numeric keypad. The notebook weighs 7.4lbs with its battery pack. Sager offers an optional external USB ATSC HDTV/analog TV tuner with a remote control.

The Sager NP8690 will cost $1,789 when it launches in October. [via Laptoping]
