Reviews for the Eurocom Armadillo 14 inch

40% Eurocom Armadillo
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $1,901 Eurocom Armadillo is a power-packed but expensive notebook. You get a powerful Core i7 processor and a 1TB SSD, but at this price, we would expect a better keyboard and touchpad, as well as longer battery life. We also don't like the Armadillo's faux-metal plastic chassis. In this price range, you should get the real deal.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

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

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


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.  


4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Eurocom: Eurocom (founded: October 1988) is a UK-based video game developer founded specifically to develop games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Later, Eurocom has expanded to other platforms and also sells laptops with own brand. The official location of the company is in Canada. According laptops, Eurocom focusses desktop replacement laptops for the sell regions Anglo-America and UK.


40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
