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).

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.
