    That Eurocom notebook is actualy made by a taiwanese ntoebook manufacturer known as Clevo. The notebook has NOT been released, and Eurocom is known for always jumping the gun and "releasing" Clevo notebooks before many other resellers. Be aware though... that the specs they claim are usualy changed a little by the time the notebook actualy sees release. This ntebook in particular has not been released, but you can get a very similar one from Sager, PC Torque, Hypersonic-PC, and several other places. The notebook that they sell uses the same chasis, but instead of having a AMD processor, uses a P4 processor.

    Your are correct on the issue of who makes the Eurocom model. For the record when it comes out it will be a super model. Initial previews of it have convinced our company to integrate it into our product line as well. However, in my opinion I feel that the Clevo model that uses the Prescott CPU and has Dual Channel RAM architecture (M-TECH 870P) is the top choice for anyone who does not need long battery life but does need tremendous power. The Dual channel gives it an advantage over other CPU styles that still use a single channel memory path.
    But if you are a AMD fan, then I would recomend holding out for the Clevo AMD version (MTECH D470K) No sure answer as to when you can expect it to be released. So many issue to iron out from the time Clevo releases it and it passing through customs and then our own QC. Like the Eurocom model though we expect it any day.[?]
