Today we popped in at Clevo’s booth to snap a few shots of its mammoth M980NU.

The MacBook Pro 17-inch Laptop base configuration (a not-super-cheap $2,799) is outfitted with a 2.66GHz CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and the switchable NVIDIA GeForce 9400M / 9600M GT GPUs. The version we have came fully loaded with a 2.93GHz CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and (yes) an anti-glare display. Needless to say, performance wasn’t much of an issue — but the final cost ($4,899) might be a little extreme for most.
