PC and laptop company Velocity Micro has announced a new effort to build custom configured laptops that will be completed with lead times of three days or less.
The NoteMagix M17 starts at $1,199 with the following options: 17.3" full HD display, Intel Haswell Core i7 CPU options, NVIDIA GTX 850M options, integrated optical drives and integrated camera and fingerprint scanner.
The Raptor MX50 starts at $1,899 with the following: 15.6" 1920x1080 IPS screen, which can be upgraded to 3840x2160, Intel Haswell Core i7 CPU options, NVIDIA GeForce GTX970M and 980M options, and integrated camera, fingerprint scanner, backlit keyboard.
The Raptor MX70 starts at $1,999 with the following: 17.3" full HD LED display, Intel Haswell Core i7 CPU options, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M and 980M options, built-in camera, fingerprint scanner, and backlit keyboard.
The customized units will begin shipping later this month.
Producing custom products with three days lead time or less could be extremely appealing for consumers and businesses alike - many value-added resellers (VARs) sell products to companies, but the systems often aren't overly configured - and lead times drastically increase depending on changes that must be made.
"Our goal with these new laptops was to create a product with the same level of customization and attention to detail that we've become known for with our desktops, but to do it with a lead time of three days and back it up with our 100% US-based tech support," said Randy Copeland, president and CEO of Velocity Micro. "We're extremely excited by this opportunity to bring the Velocity Micro Experience to a whole new level of customer via this thrilling line of products."
