Evesham’s gone mad with the spring cleaning this year.

It’s given two of its flagship notebooks, the Quest A620 (above left) and Voyager C720 (above right), a fresh tech update that will tickle every serious gamer’s fancy like a duster to the nose.

As from next month, both 17in widescreen lappies will come with – take a deep breath - NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX graphics cards. As games heads will know, the 7900’s the top of the range job that’s designed for graphics-heavy titles and high-def video playback.

Aside from the performance pay-off, the new card’s also designed to be easy on battery life – the laptops should manage 2-3 hours, which is good for power machines – and is future-proofed for when Windows Vista launches.

Spec-wise, the pair are also well equipped. The A620’s the Big Daddy, packing the blistering quick Athlon FX-60 processor, 5.8kg of weight and ‘cheat’ 7.1 surround sound, while the C720DC kicks along with an Intel Core Duo processor. Both boast a 1.3MP webcam, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The Quest A620 and the Voyager C720 will hit the shops in mid-May, costing £1700+ and £1200+ respectively. For more info check out Evesham’s website.
