Reviews for the Mesh Edge DX
While the Mesh does not feature the most attractive design here – that honour goes to the Apple MacBook – it is functional enough and will provide good usability on the road. The tough plastics employed are also surprisingly difficult to mark and don't show dust and dirt as easily as the Apple.

The first fully DirectX 11-compatible laptop and a powerful multimedia machine. Established over twenty years ago, UK based Mesh offers a range of laptops, from affordable entry-level systems to high-powered gaming machines. Although this isn't the most powerful gaming laptop we've seen, it is certainly very capable, and the inclusion of full DirectX11 GPU support makes it all the more appealing for gamers and ardent multimedia fans.

The Mesh Edge DX is a very quick laptop with plenty of performance on tap, enabling it to get its teeth into the most challenging of modern 3D games. It’s not quite the leader in gaming laptops, but neither is its price in the same league as the real heavy hitters either. It usefully adds DirectX 11 capability, which may prove of even greater worth over the coming year as more titles take advantage of these new graphics that really enhance realism.

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.
