Reviews for the Digital Storm x15-8690T-8

80% Digital Storm x15 15.6-inch Gaming Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English

The Digital Storm x15 gaming laptop is a fully customizable machine that plays games quite well, thanks to the NVIDIA GTX 460M 1.5GB graphics card. The high resolution screen is very nice, and the processor speed is more than adequate with an Intel Core i5-520M dual core CPU. This system is a great value at $1,479, but upgrading to a larger hard drive and more memory is definitely worthwhile.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M:

High-end DirectX 11 graphics card based on the GF106 chip using GDDR5 graphics memory (up to 1.5 GB).

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

Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.


520: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Digital Storm: American hardware shop, founded 2002, which sells an own laptop brand.


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