Reviews for the Eurocom Leopard 2.0

80% Eurocom Leopard 2.0
Source: PC Mag English
With its awesome array of high-end components, the Eurocom Leopard 2.0 is a mighty gaming machine. Sure, it's big and heavy, but not to the point where you can't haul it along to your next LAN party—and expensive, but not to the point of the Alienware M18x. Moreover, the stunning18.4-inch display, robust sound system, and speedy storage make this an ideal alternative to a desktop gaming rig. It's too bad that Eurocom has decided to discontinue this model, as it would have trumped the M18x as our Editors' Choice for $3,000-plus laptops. That said, the Alienware M18x retains its title as the best all-around (and available) high-priced gaming laptop.

Comment

AMD Radeon HD 6990M: High-end graphics card from AMD based on the desktop HD 6870, but with slower clock rates. UVD3 decoding and Eyefinity+ technology are still supported.

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.  


2960XM:

Fastest mobile Quad-core processor in the third quardter of 2011 based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

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.


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.


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