Reviews for the Ibuypower Armada Touch MT20X
Source: Maximum PC
The MT20X is more impressive on the CPU side, thanks to its Core i7-720QM, which offers eight effective threads of processing power to apps that can take advantage of them, as well as Turbo Boost. But it would be silly to buy the MT20X for productivity purposes, paying a premium for its touch screen in the process. As a gaming rig, it offers a novel, if still imperfect, new approach for enthusiasts of the RTS genre, but its GPU will likely hold it back on newer titles.

The iBuyPower Armada MT20X puts a slick Windows 7 multitouch screen on top of a fairly average laptop. Though the Magic utility permits a better touch-based gaming experience, it still feels bolted on.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650: Middle class DirectX 11 capable graphics card with a power consumption of about 15-20 Watt. Supports Eyevision (up to 6 monitors)
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
