Eurocom PHANTOM with Xeon

Catering to a niche of mobile pros, Eurocom today updated the PHANTOM-X to give the 17-inch desktop replacement its first quad-core workstation chip. The notebook is rebranded as a mobile server a 2.8GHz Xeon in place of its normal Core 2 Quad and Extreme processors to help handle professional-grade loads. The Canadian company also spins its multi-drive hard disk setup as a business option and lets users team up as many as three drives for up to 1.5TB of space in a RAID stripe or mirror. The larger bulk of the notebook also allows up to 8GB of memory.

The system has many of Eurocom's normal options, including a Blu-ray drive (now pitched for large data backups) and high-end dedicated graphics. Eurocom hasn't officially set pricing for the system, though pricing is likely to skew towards the higher end of the company's high-end lineup. [via Engadget]
