It also comes in a more subdued black. That aside, this 8.4-pound beast packs a quad-core Intel Sandy Bridge i7, NVIDIA graphics with 3GB (!) of video memory, up to 16GB of RAM, an 8-cell battery, USB 2.0 and 3.0, HDMI-out, a 2MP webcam, and all sorts of storage options, including an SSD of 1.25 terabytes. Pre-order pricing for the VX7 appears to start at $2,269.</p>
