Now in its ninth iteration, our multi award winning 17.3" Defiant laptop has been completely overhauled. With a brand new sleek and high quality chassis, it's faster, lighter and more powerful than ever before. At the core of the Defiant 9 17" beats the mighty Core i7-8750H six-core Coffee Lake processor, 16GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory and an incredible gaming GPU – NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. This desktop class GPU is fully compatible with Intel’s hybrid GPU feature so when you are using your machine for something less demanding than gaming, the GeForce switches off and the Intel HD graphics take over, saving power in the process. Fire up a game and the GTX 1060 immediately kicks in giving you amazing detail and frame rates. The jewel in the crown, however, is the stunning 17.3” screen with a Full-HD 1920 x 1080 display.
The high-quality turbo response keyboard is ideal for long gaming sessions. It is RGB backlit for night-time playing and there is the facility to turn off the touchpad at the tap of a button. A host of shortcut keys run along the top of the keyboard allowing you to adjust brightness, volume, wireless and Bluetooth all at the touch of a button.
In terms of connectivity the Defiant 9 is truly next gen. It has one USB 3.1 port Type-C, two standard USB 3.1 ports, one USB 2.0 port, two mini DisplayPort connectors and a pair of audio jacks. You'll get to enjoy built-in 802.11AC wireless, Gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth 4.0.
All of this is provided in a chassis that provides surprising portability. The Defiant 9 17.3" measures just 395.7mm x 260.8mm x 26.8mm and weighs 2.4kg including the battery.
