When you tout yourself as “The Home of the World’s Fastest Laptops”—and name one of your contenders after a legendary sports car—you've got a lot to prove. Las Vegas–based notebook manufacturer Malibal makes a good effort with its pricey 15-inch Lotus Steries gaming notebook. The Lotus is a powerful, expensive 15-inch gaming laptop with Core i7 pep. Its good-but-not-awesome 3D performance means serious gamers should look elsewhere, however.

MALIBAL: MALIBAL (pronounced mal-la-bull is located in Las Vegas and focusses high-end, customized notebook computers and mobile servers.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M:

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 260M is essentially a higher clocked GeForce 9800M GTX based on the G92b core built under a 55nm manufacturing process. Because of the architectural difference, the 260M is less powerful (and quite dissimilar) to the similarly named desktop GeForce GTX 260.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M:

High End graphics card based on a full GF104 chip and significantly faster than the 480M.

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.  

920XM: Fastest Core i7 laptop CPU in 2009 but with a TDP of 55 Watt it is pretty power hungry. Due to the Turbo Mode, the CPU can run with up to 3.2 GHz. Because of the Extreme tag, the multiplier is not locked, and therefore the CPU is easy to overclock.

2920XM: Fastest mobile Quad-core processor in Q1 2011 based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 


15.4: 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. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

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. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.
