iBuyPower outs its first Core i7 gaming notebook, the Battalion 101 W870CU & M980NU

IBuyPower is back with a good looking Core i7 gaming notebook. The 17.3-inch Battalion 101 W8u0CU packs just about everything you would expect from a top-tier notebook with the a price tag to match. Or you could opt for the M980NU and net a huge 18.4-inch 1080p LCD. That is, of course, if you don’t ever plan on moving the damn thing.

The W870CU fun starts out at $2,114 and comes equipped with a 17.3-inch, 1080p LCD three different Core i7 CPU options, up to 8GB of memory, a Blu-ray combo drive option, up to a 500GB HDD or 256 GB SSD options, and a 1GB Nvidia GTX280 GPU. But if you must have the biggest LCD option, the M980NU has the same hardware options but packs a 18.4-inch 1080p LCD instead. This boy has a starting price of $2,505. Both are available now.
