Reviews for the AVADirect X7200
Source: PC World
All this system horsepower contributes to a daunting price: nearly $3800. Since the machine is build-to-order, you can cut back on some components to save money--or you can go in the opposite direction and make the AVADirect X7200 even more of a performance beast by adding memory or doubling up on GPU horsepower. Despite the big price, if you want the raw performance of a desktop system, but need to schlep the PC around frequently, the X7200 may just fit the bill.

This is a gaming rig made especially for the hardware fanatics who want to brag about specs without hauling a full desktop. It's perfect for that crowd, but complete overkill for anyone else.

As much as I did not want this to be an enjoyable machine, the NP7280 turned out to be a machine that was just as adept in gaming as it was in schoolwork (providing the latter had an outlet nearby). Typing on it was a pleasure, listening to music through an external source, gaming, and even the looks people generated of "that's the biggest laptop I've ever seen" did raise a few smiles. However with the mass and power it requires, it may not be suitable to those who seek a lighter gaming laptop, or a more mainstream laptop. For that, a Sager NP8690 with a i7-740qm and a single GTX 460m (or 470m) will more than suffice, or a precision m4500 nicely loaded for the "brand-conscious" sort. Writing my Senior Thesis on this machine was a pleasure due to the outright speed in which it accomplished everything, as well as its near limitless ability to multitask. It is a machine I will genuinely miss.

Do you want a light laptop with great battery life? How about something that won't cost an arm and a leg? Or perhaps you'd prefer a nicely balanced system that does well in all areas even if it never truly shines? No? You want pedal-to-the-metal performance at all costs—weight and battery life be damned? Well, then, whip out your checkbook and get ready to blow your intended house down payment, because that sort of notebook doesn't come cheap.
