Lenovo is usually not the first name that one would associate with gaming but it looks like the company is attempting to make a mark in that segment. One example is the Lenovo IdeaPad Y400 and Y500 high performance laptops that were released in last September but we would say that this particular product – the new Lenovo Erazer X700 Gaming Desktop - is Lenovo’s most obvious attempt so far.
Revealed to the world at CES 2013 earlier this week alongside tons of other Lenovo products (it’s their CES tradition, really), the Lenovo X700 Gaming Desktop is powered by the latest generation Intel Core processor with the options of up to Intel Core i7 Extreme processor. It also supports up to 32GB worth of RAM as well as dual graphics cards configuration from either AMD HD Radeon or NVIDIA GeForce flavours. Users can also choose to equip the PC with up to 4TB of hard drive or 256GB solid state drive.
Apart from featuring high performance hardware, the Lenovo Erazer X700 is fitted with a function that the company dubbed as Onekey Overclocking which enables users to activate the system’s overclock ability just by pressing the overclock button on the system. Additionally, the PC also comes standard with liquid cooling system right from the factory.
It is yet to be known whether Lenovo will actually release the Erazer X700 gaming desktop here in Malaysia but at CES 2013, the company announced that it will be out in US sometime in June with a price tag that starts from RM 4528 (USD 1499).
