It features a Core 2 Duo CPU (the 2.4GHz T8300), 1920 x 1200 resolution, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, NVIDIA’s GeForce 8800M GTS GPU (with 512MB of GDDR3 RAM) and a DVD-R/RW/RAM optical drive.

The P-172X FX is available right now for $1,999 (£1,000) and kid brother P-172S FX will run you $1,399 (£700).
