For companies at the Consumer Electronics Show, showing off your latest, greatest, and flashiest gadgets is a sure-fire way to make sure that people notice you at one of the largest tech-based events of the year. For Origin PC, they're planning on showing off one of the craziest hybrid gaming PCs ever, making sure that they get noticed, and memorized, at CES in 2011. While it may look like a normal, albeit bigger than usual gaming rig, there's something extra thrown in for good measure: a liquid-cooled new Slim Xbox 360.
When it comes to gaming computer the cooler you can keep your hardware, the more you can overclock and the faster the rig will run. We all know about liquid cooling and air cooling, but there are methods that are more exotic too. We aren't typically going to get into things like liquid hydrogen unless we are serious about our overclocking. That typically leaves liquid for mainstream users or phase change for the hard core with bulky external boxes to get sub-zero temps on your CPU.
AMD makes some great processors that gamers and all sorts of other computer users like to cram inside their machines.

It seems that the bigger you get in the gaming laptop market, the faster the beautiful aesthetics drop off.

With a price tag that starts at $2,499, you can expect that climbing the options ladder only sees significant increases to that price.

When we see laptops now-a-days, the general rule of thumb is that thinner is better. But, when you want a small bit of mobility with your gaming rig, that thinness gets dropped out the window. After all, if you want the same guts that go into a desktop, shoved into a frame like a laptop, you can't expect every miracle to be granted. In the case of Eurocom's Panter 2.0 mobile gaming station, just from the looks of it you're obviously getting quite the powerhouse.
