OCZ to enter DIY notebook market

Customize your gaming notebook

OCZ have been making a big push into new areas of the computing market over the past few years, moving into segments that include graphics cards, power supplies, coolers, memory cards and SSDs.


Their focus has now turned to the notebook market, and they plan to enter it in a rather interesting way. A little later this year OCZ plan to release their first Do-It-Yourself gaming notebook, whereby the buyer has more control over customizing the systems' specs with a range of components of his/her choice to better suit their requirements.


Although the shell/base notebook itself is one we've seen used by other vendors in the past, it's good to see OCZ enter the notebook market in this fashion. With a little experience under their belt I'm sure we'll be seeing some very serious and competitive models show up.


While most people know OCZ Technology as a memory company, it has recently branched out into many sector of the computing market. OCZ's portfolio has now expanded to include video cards, power supplies, memory cards and solid-state drives (SSDs).


OCZ hopes to branch out even further with the announcement of a new do-it-yourself (DIY) gaming notebook. End-users will be able to purchase the DIY notebook barebones and add components to the machine to build an entire system. OCZ venders, however, will be able to spec the notebooks however they see fit.
