Ubuntu 17" Gaming Laptop - Bonobo Extreme

System76 has unveiled what their CEO, Carl Richell, is dubbing as the "Worlds Fastest Ubuntu Laptop" and it's called The Bonobo Extreme.

The laptop has a large full-HD 17.3" backlit display. The stock CPU is an Intel i7 @ 2.6Ghz, which is a Quad core, but you can upgrade to a i7-3940XM Extreme CPU @ 3.00Ghz for another $530.00 approximately. The big reason this is a gaming laptop is due to it's dedicated GPU where the base model has an nVidia GeForce GTX 670MX with 3GB of DDR5 RAM and 960 CUDA Cores. Again there is an upgrade option to a GeForce 680M with 4GB of DDR5 RAM and 1344 CUDA cores for about $134.00 more. There's a full-sized backlit keyboard which is a nice feature for dark room

The only downside I see to this laptop is the weight, it comes in at a whooping 8.6lbs. But for the amount of power this laptop has in it it's a small price to pay to be able to play those high frames per second games on the move. It currently costs $1499 and that's with System76's Christmas promotion so who knows how long it will last. Head on over to System76's website and pick yourself up one.
