Reviews for the Ibuypower Battalion 101 CZ-10

50% iBuyPower Battalion Touch CZ-10

Good all-around performance can’t save this pricey touchscreen gaming rig from shoddy design. Despite putting up solid performance numbers, the $1,249 iBuyPower Battalion Touch CZ-10’s blood-letting design should’ve been scrapped in the design lab and given an overhaul before release, and we’re relieved that the company is changing the materials used in the logo.

With the Battalion Touch CZ-10, iBuypower presents a novel new idea in gaming notebooks—and, surprisingly, it doesn’t revolve around the touch-capable screen that this laptop features. It's this, instead: Make them portable and affordable. Your average gaming laptop weighs more than 10 pounds and runs more than $2,000. The CZ-10, on the other hand, weighs just over 6 pounds and starts at a buck under a grand. This winner of a gaming notebook features a multi-touch screen, surprisingly low pricing, and a truly portable design.

60% iBUYPOWER Battalion 101 CZ-10 Premium 15.6-inch Thin and Light Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
The Battalion 101 CZ-10 Premium from iBUYPOWER is designed to be a modest mobile gaming platform for the gamer on the go that doesn't want to spend too much. In order to achieve this goal, the laptop makes a few sacrifices in terms of battery life and peripheral ports but it does provide a very solid level of performance for its $1250 price tag. The price tag is a bit of an issue since similar laptops can be found for slightly less but iBUYPOWER offers a wide range of customizations to adjust the price of the unit.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650: The Mobility HD 4650 is based on the Desktop 4650 architecture, but features a lower clock rate of memory and core. Depending on the core clock (450-550MHz possible) and the used memory (DDR2, DDR3, GDDR3 with 600-800 MHz possible) the mobile 4650 can show a different performance. The current consumption of the chip alone ranges from 15-25W. Features Avivo HD video features.

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

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


P8700:

Mid-range dual core processor with 3 MB level 3 cache and a TDP of 25 Watt.

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.
