60% CyberPower Ultrabook Zeus-M Review
Source: Computer Shopper English
The Zeus-M runs Windows 7 Home Premium, but you can opt for other flavors of Windows 7 (but not Windows 8) or no OS at all on CyberPower’s online configuration tool for the system. You can also choose to add an antivirus app when configuring the system. (None was not included on our test system.)

60% Cyberpower Gamer Zeus M3 14.1-inch Ultrabook PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
The Cyberpower Zeus M3 is a surprising entry into the utlrabook market that isn't a first tier manufacturer. To compete, Cyberpower has included an insane amount of RAM and a larger than average solid state drive with good reliability to set themselves apart. This unfortunately is marred by a display that is certainly subpar thanks to some lackluster color and poor viewing angles.

Source: Comp Reviews English
The retail Cyberpower Gamer Zeus X7-200-W8 isn't necessarily a bad gaming system but the problem lies in the pricing of the package. It is nearly $100 cheaper to buy the same configuration direct from the company. Sure, it has solid performance for a series gaming laptop but it would have been nice to see less memory with higher speeds than what is provided.

Source: Maximum PC English
Still, we have to give CyberPower credit where credit is due. The M2 might fall short in the style and battery-life categories, but it succeeds in key ways that are crucial to the Ultrabook brand, by offering a thin and light portable with flexible features and competitive performance at a very competitive price. Budget buyers will be well-served by this device.

50% CyberPowerPC Zeus Hercules
Source: Laptop Mag English
Combined with an Intel Core i7 processor and a 120GB SSD, the integrated Iris Pro 5200 GPU can't compete with the Nvidia's and AMDs of the world, but it's powerful enough to place the Hercules firmly in the conversation. But the $1,082 Hercules still has some labors to overcome, such as poor battery life, a lackluster display and an unresponsive keyboard.

Comment

Cyberpower: CyberPower, Inc. is (as they assert theirselves) one of the nation-wide leading computer system manufacturers. As published in the Los Angeles Business Journal in 2003, they were the fastest growing private company in Los Angeles.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M:

An upcoming high-end graphics card for large notebooks expected to launch with Ivy Bridge processors in the first half of 2012

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

Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200:

Integrated graphics (GT3 + eDRAM) as found on certain Haswell CPUs. It is the fastest version in its family.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

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.  

3630QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

4750HQ: An Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Pro Graphics 5200 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.
