Reviews for the MALIBAL Satori
Source: Computer Shopper
When it comes to pure processing power, the Malibal Satori is king of the notebook hill. This sharp-looking 17-inch gaming notebook owns all other notebooks when it comes to overall system performance, and it is loaded with high-end parts, including an Intel Core i7 processor, an enthusiast-class Nvidia GeForce GPU, dual solid-state drives, and a Blu-ray burner. This sleek 17-inch gaming notebook sports top components at a hefty price. Overall performance is excellent, but 3D performance lagged behind that of similarly priced gaming rigs.

Priced at just under $4,000, the Malibal Satori is a money-draining gaming rig, but it’s not quite as expensive as a similarly configured Alienware M17x ($4,543; Core i7-920XM CPU, 8GB of RAM, twin 128GB SSDs, Blu-ray burner). Still, for this price you get outstanding across-the-board performance that outpaces the $5,952 Origin EON18. While we’re not impressed by the design of this system, it’s a rig that’s worth considering for those who prioritize performance and value.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285M:
Essentially a minimally higher-clocked GTX 280M based on the same G92b core with an overall performance increase of about 3-6%.
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.
The Core i7-820QM is a high-end quad core CPU for laptops that clocks due to the Turbo Mode from 1.73-3.06 GHz. Therefore, the processor combines the advantages of fast single core CPUs and slow quad-core CPUs. Hyperthreading allows the simultaneous use of 8 Threads in parallel.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
