Reviews for the AVADirect Clevo W230ST

AVADirect’s Clevo W230ST is a laptop of extremes. From a performance standpoint it’s excellent, out-running the more expensive Razer Blade and blowing away every other 13-inch ultraportable we’ve tested. This praise carries over to the display, which somehow manages to offer the usability of semi-gloss while simultaneously delivering high contrast.

The AVADirect Clevo W230ST provides great performance at an affordable price. The more expensive Alienware 14 admittedly offers better build quality and a larger display, but the Clevo W230ST is $500 cheaper (with comparable configurations) and is even easier to transport weighing 2 pounds less.

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.  


4800MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.7 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.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.9 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for 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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
