Asus crams a terabyte into its new laptop

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Asus is hot. At CES they are set to unveil their latest offering: the world’s first laptop with a terabyte of storage. They’re going to use two of the brand-new Hitachi 500-GB drives to make worrying about space a thing of the past — or at least for those of us without 4,000 gigs of porn like some of my friends.

They’re also offering it in both RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations, which would be handy for power users editing hi-def video or some such. The screen will be 17 inches, with an impressive resolution of 1920×1200, so you won’t be downrezzing that 1080p video. Sounds pretty awesome, but it also sounds pretty expensive. We’ll have more info once we see it down in Vegas.
