Eurocom Monster 1.0 11-Inch Notebook with Core i7 and 1 TB HDD

Eurocom has a thing for high-end mobile personal computers, so it comes as little surprise to us that its newest model is a bit overkill. The company doesn't even try to hide it, as is clear from the product's name.

The name in question is Eurocom Monster 1.0, even though the laptop measures just 11.6 inches in screen diagonal, less than many ultrabooks really. From just a glance, it is easy to see that the hardware in this thing is not trying to be inconspicuous and light at all, not at that thickness. The spec sheet confirms it. As if it's not enough that such a small laptop has a powerful Intel CPU at its heart (Core i7 3820QM is one example), the Monster 1.0 uses a 2 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M discrete GPU. Four to sixteen gigabytes of DDR3-1600 RAM are part of the feature set as well. And now we reach the part that Eurocom saw fit to emphasize in its press release: the Monster 1.0 can be configured with a 1 TB Hitachi Travel Start 5K1000 hard drive (5,400 RPM). Needless to say, other storage drives can be chosen as well.

“In my case I have chosen the impressive Intel Core i7 3820QM Processor with 4 cores, 8 threads and 8 MB of L3 Cache with 16 GB DDR3-1600 RAM and a 240 GB Intel 520 Series SSD,” said Koldo Valle Garcia, Computer Science and Communications Services, Elecnor. “I can run plenty of VMs at the same time: w2k3 r2 sp2, w2k8 r2, CentOS 6... with no problem. The performance with MatLab and others engineering tools is amazing. Never seen that in a 11.6 inch portable.” Eurocom's Monster 1.0 has a battery that can last for up to 410 minutes, just short of seven hours. Unfortunately, we don't know the price, only that it's supposed to be “reasonable.”
