The Panther 4.0 is being touted by Eurocom as a supercomputer-class notebook- and it certainly has specs to back that up, as it's powered by an Intel Extreme Core i7 processor, maxes out at a massive 32GB of RAM, and can optionally have SLI graphics cards (two cards running together). All that power comes at the cost of portability, as the Panther 4.0 weighs in at just over 12 pounds and tapers to be about 2.5-inches thick at its largest point.
