60% AVADirect Clevo P375SM

I should also mention that getting the machine up and running took considerable effort. I spent several days troubleshooting repeated crashes with AVA’s tech support until it was finally determined the machine should be returned for repair. A faulty graphics card was diagnosed, but getting a fix took about a month. I don’t know about you, but if I shelled out some $3,500 for a laptop, I’d expect it to never crash once, and any repairs to be made overnight, with gold-tipped screwdrivers.

AMD Radeon HD 8970M: High-end GPU from AMD based on the 28nm Solar Series (GCN architecture). Compared to the 7970M, the 8970M just offers 50 MHz more core clock rate (boost).

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

4.3 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


AVADirect: AVADirect Custom Computers is a custom computer manufacturing company located in Ohio, USA. The company specializes in building custom computer systems including: Windows or Linux manageable and highly-reliable servers, high-end workstations and gaming systems, business PCs, and notebooks. The laptop market share is low, even in USA.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
