The CyberPower Zeusbook Edge is a 4.75 pound notebook with NVIDIA graphics and a 15.6 inch full HD display. Origin’s EVO15-S has similar specs, but weighs 4.3 pounds and the company offers an option for an even-higher resolution display.

CyberPower’s notebook features Gigabit Ethernet, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, and DisplayPort, a backlit keyboard, and optional upgrades including up to 16GB of RAM or mSATA solid state drives for faster storage.
