L International Computers Inc., the re-born computer maker previously known as Lieberman Computers or L Computers, announced a laptop that can feature up to four graphics processors.

The upcoming Metropolis-series laptop will feature overclocked Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 processor functioning at 3.37GHz, will be based on Intel P965-series chipset, will be equipped with up to 4GB of PC2-6400 (DDR2 800MHz) memory, two Serial ATA hard disk drives, optional PuRAM solid state system drive, HD DVD drive and other powerful hardware.

“It is targeted at the uncompromising high-end consumer and business user, adding the performance and features set to a mobile form factor only available today in desktop and workstation boxes,” a statement by L International Computers reads.
