Reviews for the Ibuypower Battalion 101 M571TU
Source: Comp Reviews
The iBUYPOWER Batallion 101 M571TU is certainly a system for those interested in PC gaming. With its high end Core 2 Duo mobile processor, DDR3 memory and GeForce GTX 280M graphics, it certainly can push the frames in today's 3D games. The system isn't without its issues however. Viewing just slightly off angle causes color washout on the display and the fan noise can get very loud when it is heavily used. There is also the price that is just above the $2000 mark.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M:
The GeForce GTX 280M is based on the G92b chip with all 128 pipelines and, as a result, shares more similarities to the desktop 9800 GTX+ than the desktop GTX 280. Regardless, the high clock rate makes the GTX 280M considerably faster than the 9800M GTX.
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.
High-end dual core CPU and similar to the Core 2 Duo P9700 but with a higher power consumption (35 W versus 28 W). Should be sufficient for all games of 2009.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
