Most gamers worth their salt would definitely want nothing but the very best hardware for their gaming needs, and I suppose this is a subconscious way of ensuring that should you fail to make that particular play or shot in the game itself, the blame can be shifted to the hardware – or rather, its lack of proficiency. Well, CyberpowerPC must have done plenty of soul searching to ensure that whoever brings home the Fang Taipan M2 gaming laptop will have no more excuse other than the lack of gaming talent whenever they do not make the cut.
The Fang Taipan M2 gaming laptop is a gaming laptop that comes in just one way: that is, your way. It can be customized for just about every buyer using the latest in-game technology, and depending on the reserves of “poison” (read: money) that you have, that will result in the kind of innards that the Fang Taipan M2 comes with. For starters, in terms of its GPU, you can choose from dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M in SLI mode or dual AMD Radeon HD 8970M in CrossFire mode. Not only that, the Fang Taipan M2 will also breeze along steadily thanks to the Intel Core i7-4930MX Extreme Edition CPU, where it is capable of supporting up to 32GBs of dual-channel, high-performance Kingston HyperX or Corsair Vengeance memory. All of this wouldn’t be possible without a great set of PC cooling fans.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 and e-SATA interfaces, where the lightning-fast Thunderbolt input will ensure that you get to enjoy the ultimate in connection speed, not to mention boasting rear and front-facing cameras. As for the keyboard itself, it is color-programmable and has responsive tactile feedback so that you get to enjoy enhanced gaming capability. Your eyes will be pleased to take full advantage of the Full HD 17.3″(16:9) LED-backlit display at 1920×1080 resolution, while your ears will enjoy a perfect sound setup thanks to an Onkyo speaker system that is supported by premium Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 audio technology. The starting price point for the Fang Taipan M2 would be $1,869 and the sky’s the limit.
