BFG intros Deimos gaming portable

BFG on Monday ventured into mobile computing for the first time with the Deimos, an 18.4-inch desktop replacement notebook meant for gamers. Like the Phobos desktop, video performance is the centerpiece and always has at least dual GeForce GTS 260M graphics; top-end models have twin GeForce GTX 280M chipsets. Unusually, none of the systems use Core i7, capping off at a 2.53GHz Core 2 Extreme, but in return they all have at least two RAID-striped hard drives with the option of a third drive for either a backup or to make 1.5TB of combined space.

Stock Deimos models start at $2,299 with a 2.53GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM, two 250GB hard drives and a 5.1-channel virtual surround internal speaker system. In addition to the faster processors and graphics, the PC can also replace the DVD drive with a Blu-ray burner, carry as much as 8GB of RAM and use a solid-state drive as the third disk. BFG should have the notebook ready by the end of the month.
