Reviews for the Novatech X70GTX
Source: Trusted Reviews
You get a lot for your money with the X70 CA Pro, making it all the more disappointing that silly build issues prevent it from winning an award. It's still and excellent option, though, particularly if you want a powerful desktop replacement in a smaller footprint. And, Crysis aside, it will run games at high settings with smooth frame rates - anything more requires SLI and over £2,000 to spare.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable 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.
Mid-range dual core processor with 3 MB level 3 cache and a TDP of 25 Watt.

Novatech: This British Computershop also sells laptops with its own brand. The marketshare is very low and there don't exist many laptop reviews for Novatech laptops.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
