Yes, that humongous black brick which AFTERSHOCK PC marketing manager Joe Wee has slung over his shoulder in the photo above is the answer. The AC power adaptor for the TITAN notebook weighs the same as two ultrabooks, according to Wee, and is able to output 300 watts of power — as much as what the power supply units for some small desktop computers can push.
And if you still don’t think that the power adaptor is as titanic as the TITAN itself, here’s a photo with a Singapore 50-cent coin (silver) and a dollar coin (gold) placed on top of the unit:
Massive. AFTERSHOCK PC marketing manager Joe Wee joked: “We only recommend this laptop for people who want to train their arm muscles.”
Or maybe it wasn’t a joke.

Disclosure: AFTERSHOCK PC did not ask or request for this article nor was any compensation in cash or kind exchanged. I was just visiting their shop and found the power adaptor for the TITAN ridiculously… TITANIC.
