Thin and light notebooks are all the rage, but if you're the type of professional who needs powerful computing in the field, you've got to be wanting a notebook with Intel's all-conquering Core i7 975 Extreme Edition processor.

Fortunately for you, you can always really on Eurocom, who is today announcing that its D900F Panther notebook - part of its Mobile Server range - has been upgraded to support Intel's flagship Core i7 or Xeon 5000-series processors, up to 24GB of DDR3 memory, and up to 2TB of storage. Oh, and it squeezes in NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 280M GPU, too.

The D900F Panther measures 397mm x 298mm x 60mm, and weighs a leg-breaking 5.4kg. Don't let the dimensions deter you, though, this isn't meant to be small and cute, it's aimed at military, medical-type markets, and its sole purpose is to provide workstation-class computing in the field.

Mark Bialic, Eurocom president, describes the D900F as follows:

It's a server or workstation-calibre computer complete with built-in Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) in a 12pounds notebook form factor. This is one extremely fast notebook that offers server or workstation calibre capabilities. It is designed to replace traditional desktop based workstations. It offers incredible high ROI by allowing companies to be more productive and offer new "on the go" CAD/CAM services while greatly reducing overall IT management costs.

The notebook's complete specification is detailed by Eurocom below.
