Portable workstations (opens in new tab) don’t come any more expensive than the Eurocom Nightsky ARX15 (opens in new tab), nor more powerful. The latest addition to Eurocom’s roster is built around AMD’s Ryzen processor family and is available with the Ryzen 9 3950X, the most powerful CPU available in any laptop.
Eurocom Nightsky ARX15 mobile workstation - $12,000+ (opens in new tab)
Kitted out with all the bells and whistles, this monstrous mobile workstation from Eurocom will cost you a mint. But, then again, it does feature the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X, the most powerful CPU found in any laptop.
It's not crystal clear whether Eurocom delivers worldwide, so non-US customer may have to use a specialist parcel forwarding service if they want to take advantage of the deal.
It might outperform the MacBook Pro, but don’t expect it to resemble Apple's svelte and swish-looking device. At 2.6Kg and with a thickness of up to 32.5mm, this is a utilitarian laptop that will appeal to those looking for a device that is at least a little future-proof.
What separates Eurocom from other boutique workstation vendors is the bewildering array of options available, with a fully-kitted laptop costing more than $12,000 (roughly £10,000/AU$18,500).

A top-of-the-range Nightsky ARX15 workstation with all the bells and whistles comes with an RTX2070 (with 8GB GDDR6), 64GB Samsung RAM and 16TB storage (across three SSD), which should increase to a staggering 24TB once Sabrent 8TB SSDs are widely available.

The rest of the specs are less exciting: a 15.6-inch full HD 144Hz IPS display with 90% sRGB (not a 17-inch as some might expect), one GbE LAN with an Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650x chip and a 62WHr battery, which we reckon will deliver a rather disappointing battery life.
