It's worth scouring the benchmarks below just to see how impressive the scores are, all the time reminding yourself that this is a laptop that's rattling out those frames per second. We've said it before, but this is certainly no MacBook Air – you can play games on this beast.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285M SLI:

Two GeForce GTX 285M graphics cards in SLI combination. Performance is about 0-40% faster than a single GTX 285M and, due to the slightly higher clock rate, only a bit faster than a GTX 280M SLI combination. Problems with micro stuttering can occur with this dual-card setup, most notable if around 30fps.

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.  


940XM: Fastest Core i7 laptop CPU in 2010 but with a TDP of 55 Watt it is quite power hungry. Due to the Turbo Mode, the CPU can run with up to 3.2 GHz. Because of the Extreme tag, the multiplier is not locked, and therefore the CPU is easy to overclock.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


18.4": 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. 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.

5.6 kg: This laptop is heavy. Especially desktop replacements with 19 inch display fit in this class of weight. This class is too heavy, even for 17 inch DTR.


Cryo: Britsh laptop manufacturer with low market share


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