An overclockable quad-core Core 2 Extreme CPU with liquid cooling, up to 8GB of DDR2 800/1066 RAM and three NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX video cards.
If this year's Mobile World Congress taught us one thing, it's that no matter how interesting and innovative the gadget makers and software developers of our global community are, it's the top brands that end up making or breaking the show. Make or break the show for the press, that is.
