NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480M:

Mobile Fermi GPU comparable to a lower-clocked desktop GTX 465. Due to the 100 Watt TDP (including board and memory), the GTX 480M is only suited for large laptops.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.  

720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

3.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

Clevo: Founded in 1983, CLEVO is an important Taiwanese notebook computer manufacturer for distributors and OEM/ODM partners (barebone production). Service centers exist in  in USA, Germany, Britain, China, and Taiwan. Clevo laptops are rarely sold directly to consumers. Therefore scarcely any reviews for Clevo laptops exist as these are branded with other names.

100%: This notebook model is regarded by the reviewers to be exceptionally good. There hardly exist laptops, which are rated so good. If this rating can be taken seriously, this is a clear recommendation for purchase.
