Reviews for the Velocity Micro NoteMagix M17
Source: Comp Reviews
Velocity Micro's NoteMagix M17 Ultra is not one of the more affordable laptops on the market and this is its biggest problem. Because the company elects to ship it with less memory and hard drive space than the competition, the system just falls short of the competition in features. The company may offer some good levels of support and build quality but it just falls short of what consumers can find from its competitors.

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M: The GPU has 96 shader cores but only a 128 bit memory bus that supports GDDR5 memory. With DDR3 memory, the GTS 250M performs clearly worse. Because of the 40nm process (and a selection process) the 250M offers a relatively low power consumption (the 260M needs 10W more).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
