Reviews for the Velocity Micro NoteMagix M17

40% Velocity Micro NoteMagix M17 Ultra 17-inch Desktop Replacemant Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
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.

Comment

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).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

520M:

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.

17.0": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.2 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Velocity Micro: Velocity Micro was founded 1997 in USA and focusses on gaming computers for the American market.


40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
