Reviews for the AVADirect Menace 17
The Menace is a barebones Clevo P770ZM chassis which is customized and sold by AVADirect. This notebook is predominantly designed for 3D gaming, but can also be equipped with workstation-class Nvidia Quadro cards for professional applications. The full power Intel desktop processors are likely the key selling points for this device. We ended up awarding the Menace our highest recommendation for providing great quality, outstanding performance, solid input devices, a helpful array of ports, good speakers, and a highly customizable LED backlit keyboard. Our only complaints surrounded its bright though average quality display.
