Reviews for the Ibuypower Battalion 101 LX-797

60% iBUYPOWER Battalion 101 LX-797 17-inch Desktop Replacement Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
iBUYPOWER's Battalion 101 LX-797 is their new Core i7 based 17-inch desktop replacement. The system has very strong performance thanks to the new processor and the DDR3 memory. While the general performance is strong, the graphics make the system less than optimal for gaming which is their primary audience. The system also comes with a small 250GB hard drive base but iBUYPOWER does offer a wide range of upgrades.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M: The GPU has 96 shader cores but only a 128 bit memory bus that supports GDDR5 memory. With DDR3 memory, the GTS 250M performs clearly worse. Because of the 40nm process (and a selection process) the 250M offers a relatively low power consumption (the 260M needs 10W more).

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

2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
