Looking for some gaming bang for your laptop bucks? SavRow has just launched what it calls the first Meganotebook.

The AXEN-X1 doesn’t quite justify the coining of a new genre but its specs are certainly at the Drago end of the power scale.

For on-the-move Half Life 2 action it has a 1.8GHz ,64-bit Turion processor and an expansive 19in, 1680x1050 pixel display. Even more impressively, there’s a double-barrelled graphics shotgun in the form of two nVidia Go7800GTX cards.

This dual graphics card action could be about to become a lappie trend – Sony’s new SZ series [story here] lets you switch between its cards to save juice, and Rock is rumoured to be launching a competitor for the X1 with two nVidias soon.

A standard X1 also comes with an 80GB hard drive, 512MB memory and an 8x DVD drive, although there are lots of customisation options, including an extra battery module, Office software and different paint jobs.

We’d suggest a little chat with your bank manager before you sign up for a pre-order on SavRow’s site. Without any of the tasty extras, an X1 costs £2825. Best take him a few bottles of fine wine too, eh?
