iBUYPOWER Battalion Touch CZ-11 gets Core i7 and multitouch

Recently it's been all desktops from iBUYPOWER, but the company has outed a new notebook and it looks pretty decent.  The iBUYPOWER Battalion Touch CZ-11 range packs Intel Core i7 processors, ATI Radeon HD 5650 graphics and a 15.6-inch Full HD 1920 x 1080 display, the latter of which is multitouch-capable.

Whether a multitouch display will actually help you with your gaming is open to debate, but we won't argue with the Touch CZ-11's specs in general.  As well as a 500GB hard-drive and optional Blu ray, there's 4GB of RAM and WiFi b/g/n, together with a DVD burner as standard.

OS is Windows 7 Home Premium.  The iBUYPOWER Battalion Touch CZ-11 range kicks off at $1,100, but expect to pay upward of $1,299 if you want a decent gaming configuration with the Intel Core i7-720QM CPU.
