Reviews for the Ibuypower Valkyrie CZ-28
Source: IT Reviews
The Valkyrie CZ-28 offers potent gaming performance for a lower price, leveraging more affordable AMD hardware for elite level gaming. The iBuyPower Valkyrie CZ-28 is a great entry-level gaming laptop, but outside of gaming it doesn't offer the all-around capability that many are looking for.

The iBuyPower Valkyrie CZ-28 offers gaming power for less thanks to AMD's affordable hardware, but it doesn't come without compromise, offering less capability for productive tasks and multimedia creation. If gaming is your primary focus, then definitely put the Valkyrie CZ-28 on your list of systems to consider; but if you want faster overall performance and power outside of the gaming arena, consider something like the Editors' Choice CyberPower FangBook X7-200 which offers more power with Intel hardware and an SSD cache for faster performance.
