Lenovo announces the Erazer X700 gaming PC desktop

Lenovo apparently thinks the time is right for it to launch a desktop PC made for the growing hardcore gaming PC crowd. Today, as part of its CES 2013 press announcements, the company revealed that it will launch the Erazer X700, which features a case design that looks a tad similar to Alienware's now discontinued Area 51 PC.


 

Inside the Erazer X700, Lenovo has put in what it calls OneKey technology which will allow its users to overclock the Intel Core i7 Extreme processor inside with one button, rather than entering the BIOS to do the same thing. Natrually, there's a liquid cooling system to keep things going if you want to go that route.

Inside the PC, users can choose whether or not they want to have an NVIDIA or AMD Radeon graphics card (or cards) inside. The Erazer X700 can support up to two NVIDIA GeForce GTX660 cards in SLI format, or up to two AMD Radeon HD 8950 card in a CrossFireX configuration. It supports up to 32 GB of RAM and up to 4 TB of hard drive space. It also has two hot-swap external drive bays which willl allow users to switch hard drives while the PC is still running.

Lenovo is going to make you wait a bit longer to get your hands on the Erazer X700. It's not due to ship until June with the starting price of $1,499.

I was looking for something like this a couple months ago but ended up building my own for the first time in ten years...Soooo glad I did, not difficult and you end up with better everything at a better price...what happened to the days when buying a ready to go machine was actually cheaper than building yourself?

anyone else notice the top hard drive in the picture isn't even connected, and the 2nd one only has a SATA cable to it, no power?

What freaking crackhead engineer came up with this frankenstein design???

O_O

Not only is there excessive amounts of wasted space, especially considering the damn thing is water cooled and doesn't require that much airflow, but look at the ****ing motherboard! See those two little fans that look like north and southbridge coolers? Those ****ing things die in less than 3 months! ASUS makes $60 budget boards that are 10x better than that piece of crap!!!

wasted space? ever heard of space for airflow? running this beast will get warm, and space for airflow is a good idea

And a 2nd GPU right over the northbridge is a great airflow design right?....

what a crappy looking system internally, so much wasted space, the image looks like someone make it in photoshop, why is the GFX card at an angle?... I'd expect more expansion slots on a gaming PC for future SLI type stuff if you wanted it... etc..etc.. better wire management...

Apart from the case looking completely hideous, what's with all that wasted space? Huge ATX-sized cased and they put a pathetic mini-ATX board in, doesn't even look like you could put a second GFX card in it, and they call that a gaming pc? Right yeah okay...

Liquid cooling on the CPU only.
And if you fit another GPU in there it looks like it'd be right up against the other GPU's fan, not good, plus on top of the northbridge cooling fan?

Exactly
I hate these cases which have to look like baby Lamborghinis. My 7 months old PC is faster than this hideous monstrosity.
