Proving that where there's a will, there's a way, these days higher-end desktop replacement laptops can beat mainstream gaming desktops on general-purpose computing performance, graphics performance, and even RAM capacity. But what about storage? For those with deep pockets, Eurocom now offers built-to-order notebooks with up to 28 TB of raw solid-state storage.

In its arsenal, Eurocom has two 17.3-inch DTR laptops — the Sky X9C and the Tornado F7W — that feature three M.2-2280 slots for SSDs, as well as two 2.5-inch bays for SSDs or HDDs.  Customers requiring extreme storage capacity can now order three Sabrent Rocket 4 TB SSDs (Phison PS5012-E12, 3D TLC NAND, PCIe 3.0 x4) and two Micron 5100-series 8 TB SATA SSDs for a total of 28 TB of raw NAND flash (the usable capacity will be lower). The cost of such a storage subsystem alone is about $10,700 without installation and RAID configurations, but if you need it, it exists: you will just have to open your wallet.

In addition to five storage devices, the Eurocom X9C can also pack Intel’s eight-core Core i9-9900K CPU, 128 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, and two NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics processors. A beefed-up configuration with 28 TB of raw NAND, a 4K panel, and other high-end parts will cost a whopping $20,500. Obviously, packing this amount of horsepower and storage capacity into a clamshell device is not a trivial task and requires usage of expensive components, so the price tag is not particularly surprising.

In addition to the Sky X9C and the Tornado F7W machines, Eurocom has other 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch notebooks that can accommodate more than one storage device. All of them can be equipped with a Sabrent Rocket 4 TB M.2-2280 SSD and/or a Micron 5100 8 TB 2.5-inch SSD to boost their storage capacity beyond that of a regular desktop, even though this is going to cost a small fortune.

    The article subject is "28 TB of Storage in a Laptop? Eurocom Has It" which sounds like something extraordinary. It isn't since 28TB can be fitted in other laptops as well.

    The HP Zbook 17 G6 can be fitted with 128GB *ECC* and a 5GHz E-2286M CPU. The RTX 5000 option is faster than a single 2080, and has 16B memory instead of 8GB...

    Nonetheless, the EUROCOM is like faster since it uses desktop components and the Zbook relies on much lower TDP components. The EUROCOM is a DTR with a small UPS strapped on, whereas the Zbook is a mobile workstation with many hours of battery time. Apples and oranges.

    HP doesn't offer 8TB SSD's factory installed, but you'd be pretty stupid to buy them from the OEM anyway. If I had to buy this EUROCOM laptop I certainly wouldn't buy the >$4000 8TB SSDs from them but order them from elsewhere for significantly cheaper. Micron 5210 8TB is available for $800!

    Thats moving the goal post. Which other laptop OEM give you the option for 28TB of storage? How stupid it is is irrelevant to the question asked. Reply

    Yeah but they are talking about 28 TB being offered from factory,we all know it’s stupid to pay the prices but surely someone will and has before. Reply

    The 5000 isn’t necessarily faster and they have completely different usage. Someone looking for ecc ram and workstation components will look ar euro workstation laptops which also offer those components you mention. Reply

    About time we started getting 4TB NVMe SSDs Reply

    Outrageous price, but the Xeon-based Tornado decked out with ECC RAM and lots of SSD storage could function as a portable server. Not sure if it can be had with a 10Gb ethernet adapter. That being said, the price is still stratospheric. Reply

    What would require this much storage? Reply
